Boyes Turner’s medical negligence lawyers recovered £253,000 in compensation for the bereaved husband of a 51-year-old woman who died following a subarachnoid haemorrhage and brain aneurysms.

Over a period of three months, an NHS trust and two private consultants all failed to diagnose her condition. Our experts, which included a general physician, a neurologist, a neuroradiologist and a neurosurgeon, advised that the brain aneurysms should have been detected by the defendants.  If the aneurysms had been diagnosed, the woman would have undergone successful treatment. With correct diagnosis and treatment her death would have been avoided. 

We pursued a claim for our client against the NHS trust and the two private consultants. Court proceedings were issued and served on all three defendants. They denied liability (fault) for our client’s wife’s death. The case proceeded, but in the final months before trial negotiations took place, and our client accepted an out of court settlement at £253,000.
