Theresa had spent many years trying to get compensation for poor medical treatment. The hospital denied any wrongdoing. When Theresa came to us we listened and took time to understand. We followed up her case and we recovered compensation for her.Theresa contacted the Clinical Negligence team at Barratts after she had spent many years pursuing a complaint against her local hospital. They had carried out treatment which resulted in her second fallopian tube being removed. This left her infertile.
Theresa’s complaint was eventually referred to the Health Care Commission (HCC). The hospital had denied any wrong doing. However, the HCC provided independent evidence which criticised the hospitals decision to remove Theresa’s second fallopian tube. Her first fallopian tube had already been removed.
When Theresa contacted us she was disillusioned with professionals. She was also very traumatised by becoming infertile. Initially the hospital continued to deny they had been negligent by removing the second tube. We issued court proceedings and then they agreed the tube could have been saved. However, they denied that Theresa would still have been able to have children.
We obtained evidence from IVF experts showing that Theresa would have conceived naturally but, if not, would have been provided with IVF. She would now have to fund any IVF privately and her prospect of now becoming pregnant was extremely low. Despite the hospital denying liability, we were able to secure a substantial award. This gave Theresa funding for counselling, an opportunity to have IVF privately and it reflected her pain and suffering.
