Birth Injury Litigation results in £1.67m payout

Mister Justice John Quirke has approved a partial settlement of £1.67m in the High Court for Brid Courtney in a birth injury litigation case.

The action was taken against the health service agreed to the settlement without admitting liability.

It was alleged that the hospital failed deliver the baby as quickly as necessary, causing the baby to suffer brain damage. It was also alleged that the hospital failed to note a sudden change in the foetal heart rate pattern.

The legal action was brought for Brid Courtney by her mother Deirdre Courtney.
