An Aurora, Illinois mother settled her medical malpractice lawsuit for a reported $15.35 million.
The mother claimed successfully in her lawsuit that her son developed cerebral palsy and suffered mental retardation after the doctor assisting in his delivery unsuccessfully used a vacuum extraction device to deliver the baby. On top of unsuccessfully using the vacuum extraction device, the doctors reportedly did not perform an emergency C-section until after the baby’s heart rate showed he was in distress.
The lawsuit was settled with the hospital and the doctor more than six years after the baby was born.
