An infant’s necessary heart surgery was not performed, resulting in cerebral palsy.
This case was settled against a medical center for failure to perform a necessary heart surgery on an infant. The baby consequently developed cerebral palsy in this medical malpractice case. Sadly, the infant had a curable heart defect which went untreated. The result of this action was a significant stroke which caused the baby to lose a portion of her eyesight. She was also unable to walk and suffered various additional defects as a result. (Attorney Scott Parsons was co-counsel for this case.)
