€2 million Partial Settlement for Birth Injury Agreed

A partial settlement of €2 million has been agreed in the High Court for a baby who suffered a serious birth injury during her birth.

Brid Courtney was born at Tralee General Hospital but their failure to deliver the baby as soon as possible allegedly caused her to suffer brain damage. Claiming on behalf of her daughter Deirdre Courtney is also arguing that the hospital did not take account a sudden change in the heart rate pattern of the baby.

The Health Service Executive (HSE) agreed to the settlement but did not admit liability.
