Father seeks £300k clinical negligence damages

Father seeks £300k clinical negligence damages

Clinical negligence compensation worth a minimum of £300,000 is being sought by a father after his daughter's legs were amputated during an alleged medical blunder.

According to the Peterborough Evening Telegraph, Hou Chun Lin is taking legal action against the Peterborough District Hospital - an institution managed by the Peterborough and Stamford NHS Trust - after an incident involving his ten-month-old child in February 2006.

Mr Chun Lin - who cannot speak much English - took his daughter Miki Lin Gao to the hospital three times with a skin infection, but was told to go home by doctors before she was finally admitted.

It was then found that the girl was suffering from septicaemia and multiple organ failure, which resulted in her having to undergo surgery to remove both legs.

Within a writ served to the High Court in London, Mr Lin claims that professionals at the hospital did not properly examine his child early enough.
