In this Cook County, Illinois case, the Defendant hospital failed to recognize the warning signs of fetal distress during a two-day induction of a young mother. Due to the hospital’s overuse of Pitocin during the labor and delivery and their failure to perform a cesarean section, excessive contractions stopped oxygen delivery and blood flow to the baby’s brain. The hospital’s negligence caused severe brain damage to the child, who cannot walk, talk or care for herself. Beam Legal Team settled this case for $15 million dollars.
