Stephen’s family came to us after they were told that there were no grounds to pursue a claim for a brain injury at birth. We successfully pursued their claim and Stephen was awarded £4.5 million in compensation.Stephen and his family were awarded compensation of almost £4.5 million after he was left severely brain damaged following complications during his birth at St George’s Hospital, London. Despite the family having been advised by other solicitors that there were no grounds for a claim for compensation, we successfully obtained Legal Aid to re-investigate.
The Health Authority admitted liability after court proceedings were issued. Negotiations took place between the parties which resulted in settlement before Trial. It was successfully argued that there had been a delay in delivering Stephen following an abnormal trace of his heart and as a result he suffered severe lack of oxygen leading to brain damage and the development of cerebral palsy.
The High Court in London approved the final settlement. The Health Authority also provided an apology to Stephen and his family. Stephen’s parents described the service provided by us as ‘simply the best’.
