Medical Solicitor Secures £20,000 Compensation in Pressure Sore Claim

27 June 2012

In this Clinical Negligence case Medical Negligence Solicitor Amy Bond successfully represented an 8 year-old girl who underwent a routine medical procedure to re-align her hip. 

The young girl was placed in a cast and discharged from the hospital. Her family noticed she was crying, agitated and appeared deeply distressed. She was eventually discovered to have a Grade 4 pressure sore to her Patella.

The Hospital Trust admitted breach of duty in failing to take adequate measures to prevent the pressure sore developing and Amy negotiated a medical negligence settlement of £20,000 compensation to be paid to the client.
