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.
