A mother who is expecting to receive a seven-figure injury compensation sum after her son was born with cerebral palsy has spoken of her gratitude to the Birth Trauma Association (BTA).
Amanda Langford, from Tipton, has a 21-year old son who suffers from mobility problems and developmental delay as a result of being starved of oxygen at birth, the Birmingham Mail reports.
After seeking injury compensation, Ms Langford won a ruling at the High Court stating that West Midlands Strategic Health Authority was liable for her son Christopher’s injury.
She is now paying tribute to the support the BTA gave her during her battle for compensation.
"Organisations like the BTA do fantastic work because women who have suffered birth trauma of any kind can often feel incredibly isolated," Ms Langford told the paper.
The news follows reports in This Is Wiltshire that a woman from Swindon has been awarded millions of pounds in injury compensation nearly 25 years after medical blunders caused her to be born with brain damage.
