Colchester University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has paid a family £8.5 million pounds in compensation after it admitted liability for the injuries their child received at birth in the maternity ward. The baby boy sustained a fractured skull during his birth when forceps were used during his delivery.
As a result of the boys fractured skull, he suffered a severe brain haemorrhage and ,when he reached 5 years old, he then contracted a virus which had devastating consequences resulting in a stoke leaving him disabled for life. Although the two events are not related, the combination of the two tragedies has meant that the young boy has suffered catastrophic injuries which will affect him for the rest of his life.
The £8.5 million settlement will pay for all the child’s care needs from adaptations in the home to physiotherapy and specialist care.
