Medical Malpractice Story: Tyler Roscoe

Tyler Roscoe’s mother, Shannon Hughes, was having a long and difficult labor. The doctor was called repeatedly and finally showed up at her 35th hour of labor. At 37 hours the doctor performed an emergency C-section. The umbilical cord was twice wrapped around the child's neck. Tyler suffered cardiac arrest for 18 minutes. As a result, Tyler is severely brain-damaged and bedridden. He must be turned every two hours, is fed through a tube, suffers seizures daily and is non-communicative. The family settled for a confidential sum.
