Doctors miss serious spinal condition leaving a Mother in constant agony and incontinent
Clair Hemming, partner in the medical negligence team at Tozers Solicitors LLP comments on this story in the Daily Mail.This is a very sad report of a women whose life has been catastrophically altered as a consequence of the failure of medical staff to carry out investigations. The financial and personal cost of such a mistake is immense. Unfortunately cases such as this are not unusual. I am really pleased that the Trust have admitted liability in this case and can only hope that the Trust will act reasonably in their negotiations over compensation for this lady. Whilst damages will never fully compensate for what this lady and my own clients have lost and the lifelong problems that they will continue to endure, it is crucial that sufficient damages are secured which will allow them to purchase the treatment, therapy and support they will need to ensure a reasonable quality of life.
