Beam & Raymond Win $15M Settlement for Brain Damage Birth Injury Case

Posted By Beam & Raymond || 26-Jul-2017

A 6-year-old girl with cerebral palsy finally saw closure for her birth injury case, resulting in a $15 million settlement in her favor. Our client, Nyelle Brown, suffered severe brain damage during her delivery in 2011. After filing a 2013 medical malpractice lawsuit against a Chicago land hospital, her family alleged the Chicago Heights hospital had not delivered her soon enough, resulting in an entirely preventable injury. Unfortunately, it is a negligent mistake Nyelle and her family are forced to live with forever.

Without admitting liability, the Chicago land hospital agreed to settle. Our team of aggressive and experienced birth injury lawyers pursued justice relentlessly, as we believe the hospital made a grave error in continuing to give Nyelle’s mother Pitocin in hopes of inducing labor. Considered an overdose, the unnecessary contractions stopped oxygen and blood flow to Nyelle’s brain--despite continuous signs and warnings, which were sadly ignored by medical professionals.

Attorney Geoffrey Fieger, of Detroit, with our firm, fought hard to have Nyelle’s family earn compensation for this horrible injustice. Because of the hospital’s negligence, she is unable to walk, talk, or care for herself--she will require a great deal of therapy and medical care for the rest of her life. Regrettably, cases like this are all too common. If you or a loved one has suffered a birth injury in a similar fashion, please don’t hesitate to reach out for help from a law firm with a proven track record of success and commitment to its clients.
