High Court approves €3.75 million interim settlement in brain injury case

We recently acted for a minor Plaintiff in a High Court medical negligence claim against the Rotunda Hospital.

On 17 May 2022, the High Court approved a 10 year interim payment of €3.75 million to our client.

The court was told the baby’s mother was admitted for an induced labour and was kept on the drug syntocinon “for a considerable period of time”. As a result, it was claimed he suffered brain damage leading to learning and physical difficulties.The interim payment will now allow our client to obtain the care he requires into the future and better assist his daily needs.
