Client who suffered nerve damage due to medical negligence received £75,000 compensation
05 March 2010
A nerve injury claim was brought forward by our client, a young lady who had a benign lump removed on her neck by her Hospital. The lump was in fact concealed by her hair and posed no threat to our client’s health, which meant that there was no need for the treatment. Whilst the operation was being conducted, the surgeon negligently damaged the accessory nerve which in turn caused her to suffer unnecessary pain. Sadly our client was unable to move her arms above shoulder height due to the pain she encountered. Her day to day activities were severely restricted and it was difficult for her to care for her three small children. Taking all this into account our expert nerve injury solicitors settled this case allowing our client to receive damages worth £75,000.
