$1,100,000 settlement for failure to recognize newborn infection

The family of a young boy who suffers from developmental delays received a $1,100,000 settlement from health care providers who were involved in his delivery. The baby’s mother developed a severe infection during her prolonged labor, and neither she nor her baby were properly treated for the infection. The doctors claimed that the boy had suffered a stroke in utero, and that he had a genetic abnormality that was responsible for his delays.
