Boyes Turner's medical negligence solicitors acted for a 14 year old boy whose untreated asthma attack led to cardiac arrest and catastrophic brain injury resulting in spastic tetraplegia and cognitive impairment with greatly reduced life expectancy.

This child had been admitted to the same hospital on four previous occasions with acute asthma so steps should have been taken to monitor and treat his condition. Had such steps been taken the cardiac arrest and brain injury would have been avoided.

This case was fully defended and settled on the first day of trial for just under £1,000,000. The compensation was less than the court would have awarded had the case succeeded at trial and reflected the risks of losing at trial. The compensation will go a long way to meeting his long term care needs.

The medical negligence claim involved experts in three medical disciplines and the full range of experts in assessing needs.
