GA secures hundreds of thousands for medical negligence victim
GA Solicitors’ medical negligence team won a legal battle on behalf of its client, Mrs F, who was left disabled after a negligent total hip replacement surgery.
71 year old Mrs F underwent a total right hip replacement operation at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth. She woke from surgery to excruciating pain and a medical review found that, during the surgery, Mrs F’s pelvis was fractured which then resulted in the replacement joint migrating into her pelvis.
The client required complicated corrective surgery which included the packing of the pelvis with crushed bone.
GA’s medical negligence team worked tirelessly on behalf of the victim, securing expert opinions and numerous reports to demonstrate the lasting impact and suffering caused by the negligence. The claim went to trial and the judge accepted the evidence provided by GA’s experts who said they “have never seen this severity of complication”.
Mrs F was awarded significant compensation at trial (in excess of £200,000) which allowed her to adapt her bungalow, which was purchased due to the mobility issues caused by the negligent surgery, ensuring it was specially adapted to her needs.
If you or a family member have suffered due to mistakes made during surgery, our medical negligence lawyers may be able to help you make a medical negligence compensation claim.
