CHICAGO DAILY LAW BULLETIN: Birth Injury Claim Results in Settlement Valued at $14 Million

Tim Cavanagh received a $14 million settlement for a 5-year old Chicago boy who suffered a severe brain injury during birth after hospital staff members mixed up his heart rate with his mother’s pulse.

The seven-minute lapse without oxygen caused the child to suffer cerebral palsy, leaving his arms and legs paralyzed.
