The woman's medical history, including a high-risk of uterine rupture, was known to the staff, however, the physician neglected to call for help, resulting in oxygen being cut off to the baby. The baby boy was born with brain damage and cerebral palsy, and is now permanently disabled and will require around-the-clock care for the rest of his life. According to the article, "a substantial portion of settlement funds have been used to purchase an annuity that will make monthly payments into the injured child's trust that are guaranteed for the duration of his life, no matter how long he lives."
