Lavelle Partners successfully secured a significant settlement on behalf of a Plaintiff who developed right brachial plexus and a number of other conditions as a result of his negligent delivery

  • Posted

In 1998, the plaintiff was born in Monaghan General Hospital. The delivery was complicated by dystocia. In pulling the plaintiff’s head whilst the right shoulder was obstructed behind his mother’s symphysis pubis, the midwives caused a permanent injury to the plaintiff’s right brachial plexus.

The Plaintiff instructed Lavelle Partners to investigate the circumstances of her case. We obtained an expert opinion from the UK which confirmed that the delivery failed to meet the proper standard of care.

The matter was successfully settled in advance of the trial to include the Plaintiff’s costs.
