$4.5 Million Settlement for an Infant Injured During Delivery

Paul McGivern and Susanne Raab obtained a $4.5 million settlement for a baby who suffered a severe brain injury at birth as a result of the failure of the attending medical staff to properly monitor the fetal wellbeing during labour and delivery. The baby has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy.

The Public Guardian and Trustee recommended approval of the settlement to the court, noting that:

"Mr. McGivern has particular expertise/interest in obstetrical cases and has handled more than 200 such cases over the years. He is one of the most experienced medical malpractice lawyers in BC, having practiced for over 20 years exclusively as a medical malpractice lawyer."
