A mother whose son suffered severe brain damage during birth is set to receive potentially the biggest medical negligence payout in history. The hospital's negligence led to her son James Robshaw, now 12, being born with cerebral palsy. The decision, believed to be one of the most significant in a case of medical negligence and the largest ever such court-ordered award for birth injury, reflects the lifetime care that James needs. Suzanne Adams' son James Robshaw was born with cerebral palsy after she hospital staff failed to carry out a Caesarean section or properly monitor her during labour. James cannot speak, dress or feed himself without assistance of a machine and must use a wheelchair.
