Birth Brain Injury Lawsuit

The parents of a child who suffered a debilitating brain injury during the birth process has filed a lawsuit against Protestant Memorial Medical Center doing business as Memorial Hospital and Dr. Michael E. Herrmann. The birth injury lawsuit contends that Sophia Schneider suffered hypoxic brain injury during the delivery process. The lawsuit also claims that Sophia Schneider has developed cerebral palsy as a result of the birth injury.
According to a news report in the Madison-St. Clair Record, “The Schneiders blame Herrmann of Memorial Hospital for causing their daughter’s injuries, saying he negligently ruptured membranes when her head was engaged before her birth and failed to utilize inutero resuscitation maneuvers and prepare for an immediate C-section in a scenario of prolonged deceleration.”
