Birth injuries are devastating to the child and the parents. The financial burdens caused by such injuries may last a lifetime.
A birth injury lawsuit filed in Ohio alleged that the doctor, Tara Shipman, ignored information from a fetal heart monitor indicating the birth required a cesarean section. As a result of the botched birth Haley Cobb was born with cerebral palsy and would require a lifetime of expensive medical care.
The Ohio jury agreed with the Cobb family and found that Dr. Shipman’s negligence was the cause of Haley’s cerebral palsy and awarded $13.9 million to the Cobb family—the largest settlement in a malpractice case in Trumbull County.
