Birth Injury Case Yields $15.35 Million Settlement

What was supposed to be a momentous day for the Jenkins family of Chicago ended in tragedy. Problems during the delivery of their infant son limited the oxygen available to the fetus, resulting in later diagnoses of mental retardation and cerebral palsy. The baby was eventually delivered via Cesarean section, but the malpractice suit that was later filed contended that the crucial damage occurred when the doctors continued to pursue vaginal birth aided by vacuum extractors, even after indicators suggested that the infant was experiencing distress.
