Case studies

Clinical negligence

Amputation resulting from a dog bite

Significant compensation was recovered for a client who suffered an injury to their ring finger after being bitten by a dog. The hospital failed to operate. Despite several surgical procedures, the client lost the finger to amputation.

Permanent disability claim

Damages were recovered for a client whose ruptured bicep tendon was missed by their GP. By the time the injury was detected, surgery was no longer a viable option and the client suffered permanent limitation of movement as a result.

Successful claim for misdiagnosis of cancer

Successful claims have been brought for a number of clients whose conditions have been made worse by the delayed diagnosis of cancer. They include a client who was treated for many years for a benign eye condition and lost his eye as a result of the misdiagnosis.

Family claim as a result of cancer surgery

Compensation was obtained for the family of a patient who tragically passed away following poor medical care after successful cancer surgery. The Health Board disputed the claim even after receiving a critical report from the Ombudsman.

Incorrect medication causes permanent damage to sight

Substantial compensation was obtained for a client who was given the wrong medication to treat a corneal abscess. Raised eye pressure led to permanent damage to their sight affecting their ability to work with the likelihood of future deterioration.
