Negligence claim success after pressure sores to heels following surgery

£185,000 was recovered for a 35 year old woman who developed pressure sores to both heels following surgery to create an ileo-anal pouch in May 2002. The medical negligence case was handled with the benefit of legal aid and then a conditional fee (no win no fee) agreement when legal aid was discharged for financial reasons.

Experts retained in the fields of nursing care, occupational therapy and plastic surgery. The medical claim was complicated by a pre-existing medical condition making valuation more difficult.

Continuing mobility problems were likely to result from the condition and future surgery might or might not provide a lasting cure.

The service was personal, professional and considered. I was treated so kindly and in the end I knew that not only had I found the right organisation but also the right person.
