Medical Negligence Solicitors, children and Claims.

The parents of an eight-year-old girl, who was left profoundly disabled after being starved of oxygen at birth, have reached a settlement with the Northern Health and Social Care Trust.

The child was born in Antrim Area Hospital in 2007 and suffered hypoxia due to a delay in her delivery.  This resulted in numerous health issues including severe cerebral palsy and complex epilepsy.

Her parents brought a medical negligence claim against the trust.  A five day trial was scheduled at the High Court earlier this month but the trust admitted full liability a week before the hearing date.  They agreed to pay a figure of £5.3 million to cover damages and costs of past and future health care.
