A baby did not receive a much-needed blood transfusion, causing cerebral palsy.
A neonatologist and nurse failed to provide a blood transfusion to a newborn. This resulted in the baby’s diagnosis of cerebral palsy. The infant had been born with anemia or lack of oxygen and needed only a blood transfusion. However, because the blood transfusion was delayed significantly, the result was a serious cerebral palsy condition for the infant. This was the No. 1 case in 2015 for settlements of its kind, as reported in The Law Journal. (Attorney Scott Parsons was co-counsel for the case.)
