High Court approves disability settlement
Thanks to the Truthman for passing this on.
The High Court has approved a settlement of €500,000 to an eight-year-old girl who was born with disabilities allegedly caused by prescription drugs taken by her mother while she was pregnant.
Rebecca McGillin took the action against consultant psychiatrist Patricia Casey and obstetrician and gynaecologist, Dr Mary Holohan, through her father Barry.
It was alleged that Rebecca suffered injuries as a result of the negligent treatment of her mother, Lisa Glynn-McGillin by the doctors.
Ms Glynn-McGillin claims she would have come off the two drugs she was on if she had been advised there were risks to the foetus.
She was taking Epilim, an anti-epileptic drug used as a mood stabiliser, and Lithium.
Rebecca was born in 2001 with a deformed hand and other disabilities consistent with sodium valproate syndrome.
Both doctors denied all the claims and the settlement was made without admission of liability.
