The High Court in London have approved the settlement of a claim for a child who was born with mild cerebral palsy resulting in left sided weakness and some developmental delay.     The claim arose as a result of a failed attempt by the obstetrician at forceps delivery on four occasions resulting in Miss P suffering a subgaleal haemorrhage as a result of direct trauma.

Liability was denied throughout but we are pleased to report that we were able to obtain a substantial settlement for Miss P through settlement negotiations with the defendant solicitors, formal litigation and with the approval of the High Court.
