Aurora, IL Family Receives $6.5M in Cerebral Palsy Case
An Aurora hospital has agreed to pay a $6.5 million settlement to the family of a 7-year-old boy, Roberto Morales Jr., who allegedly suffered a brain injury at birth due to negligence on part of the staff. According to the lawsuit, the attending obstetrician, as well as the labor and delivery nurse, failed to respond to the child’s negative side effects caused by the drug Pitocin. Roberto was diagonised with cerebral palsy and has limited mobility. The $6.5 million will be used for Roberto’s continued health care.
Injuries that cause cerebral palsy are often avoidable, but birth injuries caused by negligence can be difficult to prove. A skilled birth injury attorney will know what to look for when investigating the cause of a child’s injuries.
