On the 13 May 2013 Augustus Cullen Law succeeded in settling, on an interim award basis, a claim on behalf of a 7 year old little boy who suffered from prolonged, partial asphyxia during labour as a result of failure on behalf of the midwifery and obstetric staff at The Mid-Western Regional Maternity Hospital to recognise the obvious signs of foetal distress demonstrated on the CTG trace. Rather than intervening immediately to perform an emergency Caesarean Section, the attempt to continue inducing labour in the mother was persisted for a number of hours, during which time the infant Plaintiff suffered prolonged partial asphyxia.
