€2m Partial Settlement for Child Birth Injury

Comments None

A child who suffered brain damage during her birth has been awarded a partial settlement of €2m by the High Court.

The Health Services Executive (HSE) agreed to the settlement for Brid Courtney in a claim taken by her mother Deirdre Courtney although the HSE did not admit liability for the birth injury which occurred at Tralee General Hospital.

Ms.Courtney claims the child suffered brain damage when the hospital did not deliver the baby as quickly as possible. The case has been adjourned.
