Delay in Diagnosis and Treatment

Aug 30, 2016
A hospital was ordered to pay circa seven figure sum in compensation after a patient suffered severe brain injury in its care. Mr A was left severely brain damaged as a result of a delay in diagnosis and treatment of a cerebral abscess. The hospital’s negligence left Mr A with cognitive and decision-making difficulties, as well as severe memory problems. It is unsafe for him to live on his own and he is no longer capable of his pre-accident employment or of independent living as a result.

The settlement was broken down into a lump sum of seven figures for life.

The Judge hearing the case commented that Mr A had been “very well advised” and stated the settlement figure was “proper and just compensation.”
