We were asked to help a Taunton woman who suffered injury during a medical procedure when a nurse tripped over a cable. This caused fluid to leak from a medical instrument which at the time was inside the patient’s womb.
As a result of the medical accident the leaked fluid burnt our client’s cervix and the site of the burn subsequently became infected.
We agreed to pursue a medical accident compensation claim against the hospital in Somerset on a No Win, No Fee basis.
Following an agreement with the hospital to extend the three year time period to bring a compensation claim, settlement negotiations took place.
Having been presented with a strong case the hospital accepted responsibility for the woman’s injuries. Steps were then taken to quantify the value of the compensation claim. To aid us in this task we obtained reports from independent medical medical experts.
After lengthy discussions with the hospital’s legal representatives, an agreement was finally reached for an out of court settlement of the claimant’s medical accident claim. She received a sum of £35,000.00, together with payment of her legal costs.
