£8m award for girl left with cerebral palsy after being starved of oxygen at birth at Bradford Royal Infirmary



A 12-YEAR-OLD girl left with brain damage after she was starved of oxygen at birth at Bradford Royal Infirmary has been awarded £8 million compensation to provide lifetime care.

But it was only when the family’s legal team managed to obtain a transcript of a conversation between her mother and the ambulance crew on the night she was admitted in labour that Bradford Hospitals Trust was willing to negotiate.

Until that point, they had insisted that they were not at fault, said the girl’s lawyer Jane McBennett, of Morrish Solicitors.



Shortly before the liability issue was due to be tried at the High Court, Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust put forward an offer and settlement negotiations were agreed on the basis that it accepted that it was 80 per cent to blame for the injuries which left the girl, who cannot be named, with cerebral palsy.

Under the terms of the settlement she will get a lump sum of £2.2m plus annual payments of £80,000, rising to £148,000 after she reaches the age of 19 to help maximise her quality of life.

Ms McBennett said: “The claim arose from very serious brain injuries suffered at the time of the birth, which caused the girl to suffer from cerebral palsy.
