$2.5 Million Settlement for Accident with Commercial Truck, Injuring Baby In Utero

A minor child was born with cerebral palsy (CP), which plaintiff alleged was caused by trauma to the minor in utero from a car wreck with a corporate truck when his mother was seven months pregnant.  This was a novel case in North Carolina, and causation was heavily contested.  There had been no other known North Carolina lawsuits dealing with in utero trauma from a car wreck, causing CP.  The defense contended that the minor’s CP simply was not caused by the car wreck.  Plaintiff, however, argued that there simply was no other possible cause for the CP and obtained numerous medical experts to support their position.  Following substantial discovery, including depositions of the plaintiff’s medical experts, the case was ultimately resolved for $2.5 million.
