The group recovered £253,000 in compensation for a 57 year old man following the death of his wife in 2007.

The case related to failures on the part of an NHS Trust and two different private consultants over a three month period to diagnose and treat subarachnoid haemorrhage and brain aneurysms, which ultimately lead to the woman’s death at age 51.

Four experts were instructed to assist on the case in the disciplines of a general physician, a neurologist, a neuro-radiologist and a neurosurgeon. The experts were all supportive of the fact that the brain aneurysms should have been detected by the defendants and that, had they been, the death would have been avoided. The neurosurgeon was of the opinion that, if the aneurysms had been diagnosed, then the woman could and probably would have undergone successful treatment.

Formal court proceedings were served upon all three defendants, which were defended. Following late negotiation, a settlement of £253,000 was achieved just two months before trial was due to take place. There was no cost to the client in bringing the claim which was brought on a no win no fee basis.
