When Mr L. fractured his right hand, he put his health in the hands of medical professionals. He went to the hospital and his doctors told him that there was no fracture and that the pain would go away if he applied ice and rested it.
But three months later his hand was still in pain, making it difficult to write or keep up his efficiency at the take-away restaurant where he worked. Knowing something wasn’t right, he went back to his GP, who found that he had fractured the bones in two of his fingers.
If his hand had been treated immediately after the accident, when he was in hospital, the injury would have healed well. But the failure of his doctors to notice the damage meant that nothing could be done once the breaks had been detected.
Left with chronic pain in his hand, unable to lift heavy objects, work at speed, or even do up the buttons on his clothes, Mr L. came to CTS for help. With the aid of our expert solicitors, he was able to pursue a medical negligence claim against his doctors for the misdiagnosis and failure to treat his injury.
Our medical negligence solicitors ensured that not just the initial injury but also the impact on his work and home life were taken into account as part of the claim, and showed that his fractures should not have been overlooked by the medical professionals who were supposed to look after him.
Specialist solicitor Vicky Blodwell helped Mr L. to win a substantial £25,000 in compensation for the negligence he suffered, to help him get his life back on track after his accident.
