Cork University Hospital

This is a settlement for the Medical Malpractice lawsuit.

Darragh Crowley was born in 1998 with a brain malformation. Four days after his birth, doctors performed corrective surgery and he subsequently developed as normal healthy infant. In September 2000, Darragh became ill again and was admitted to Cork University Hospital. He underwent surgery to repair the shunt previously inserted into his brain, but sustained catastrophic personal injuries from the operation. Darragh was left totally blind, severely brain damaged and now requires 24-hour care. His parents filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against the hospital and were awarded a �4.65 million settlement.
