In Cleveland, Ohio, Beam Legal Team won a record $30 million for a brain damaged 17-year-old boy. A Cuyahoga County jury found that the obstetrician, along with the now defunct hospital, were negligent in neglecting to deliver baby Walter Hollins earlier. Witnesses testified that Walter’s mother waited for two hours to receive an “emergency” Caesarian section. During that time, the flow of oxygen to Baby Walter’s brain was devastatingly reduced. This hypoxia (lack of oxygen) and ischemia (lack of blood) combined to cause Walter’s cerebral palsy and spastic quadriplegia. Walter will forever be wheelchair-bound. He requires 24-hour care and is entirely dependent upon his mother and his other care givers for even the most basic human needs.
