Wife seeks clinical negligence damages

Wife seeks clinical negligence damages

Clinical negligence compensation totalling more than £300,000 is being sought by a woman whose husband was left brain damaged after he underwent an operation.

According to the Reading Post, Lynne Llewelyn is pursuing unlimited damages from the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust because of the fact her husband Frank sustained life-changing injuries while having surgery in September 2009.

Mr Llewelyn had a surgical procedure at Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital - which was first established in 1919 - to remove a part of his tongue that had been affected by cancer.

However, mistakes were allegedly made by professionals at the institution which resulted in him suffering a heart attack and brain damage.

Consequently, Mr Llewelyn is now in a semi-vegetative state and will need 24-hour care for life, leading his wife to take legal action against the trust in pursuit of a significant sum of compensation to pay for his needs.
