Child Shoulder Injury Compensation Approved in Court

A boy who sustained a shoulder injury at birth and who now has one arm shorter than the other as a result has had a child shoulder injury compensation settlement of 300,000 Euros approved in the High Court.

Daniel James O’Connell (now 14) of Portlaoise, County Laois, brought the medical malpractice claim against the Midland Health Board (now the Health Service Executive) and consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist John Conway through his mother – Valerie O´Connell – claiming that his condition was due to medical negligence during his birth in March 1995.

The court heard that the Health Service had offered an amount of 300,000 Euros in child shoulder injury compensation which the family were prepared to accept under advice. The compensation offer was approved and it was noted that the payment of child should injury compensation was being made without admission of liability.
