Girl awarded compensation after brain damage at birthCompensation has been awarded to a girl who suffered brain damage at birth.
According to the BBC, 14-year-old Tahlia Jade Downes is set to receive millions of pounds after taking her case to the High Court.
She sued the managers of Norfolk and Norwich Hospital through her mother, claiming that a Caesarean should have been carried out.
The court heard that Tahlia suffered permanent brain damage, leading to severe physical and mental disabilities, having been deprived of oxygen during her delivery.
It comes after a settlement was reached in the case of Shane Alger, whose heart stopped during his birth at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn in June 2004.
A final figure to be awarded to Tahlia will be reached in the future, but the news source noted that the hospital agreed before Mr Justice Eady that the girl should receive 70 per cent of the full valuation of her claim.
