In December of 2000, a woman’s uterus burst during labor caused a birth injury. The mother’s body no longer could provide oxygen for the child, who went 18-20 minutes without oxygen. The birth injury caused permanent brain damage. There was a $31 million dollar verdict for the birth injury when the case was brought to court, the most in Ohio history, but they have settled out of court for what is believed to be less money.
