A girl who suffered lack of oxygen to the brain during her birth has been successful in her claim for clinical negligence compensation. She has been left severely brain damaged and as a result, severely disabled.
A Court has ruled that a hospital failed to manage a mothers birth complications and was responsible for the baby being starved of oxygen. An incident that could and should have been avoided.
The NHS Trusts solicitor in the case agreed that they “did not receive the level of care that should have been afforded to her and her mother during her labour.”
“Lessons have been learned”.
The judge presiding over the negligence case said, “I appreciate just how much the family have devoted themselves to her and the real difficulties which have been faced by them.
“I hope very much that this is a step towards making life for her easier.”
In cases of severe disability or catastrophic injury, the damages can be well into the several millions to cater to the lifelong,24 hour care that she will need to afford a good quality standard of living.
The hospital Trust spokesperson said, “The parties are working hard to resolve the level of damages to be paid.
“It is recognised that the care provided by the trust fell below the standard expected.
“The trust has offered its sincere apologies to her and her family.
“Whilst we appreciate that no amount of money can compensate her and her family, and the trust is unable to change the events in 2007, we hope following the resolution of this case the sums paid will enable her family to continue to care for her now and in the future.
“The trust works hard to ensure the quality of its health care service continues to improve and that lessons are learnt after mistakes are made.”
