Edwina Rawson successfully negotiated a pay-out of £11 million on behalf of a boy who suffers cerebral palsy as a result of being starved of oxygen during his birth at King George Hospital in Essex. The £11 million will be paid out over his lifetime.

The boy, who is now 9 years-old, was born with severe cerebral palsy after medical staff failed to notice his slowing heartbeat during his mother's labour. He was not breathing when he was born and had to be resuscitated by doctors.

Consultants on the case said that had staff spotted the problem and performed a caesarean just 15 minutes earlier, his brain damage would likely have been avoided.

The boy has since spent most of his life in a wheelchair, unable to move his arms and legs, speak or hold up his head independently. He often suffers seizures, which, at night, prevent him from sleeping. He is severely disabled, and needs looking after day and night.

The pay-out will enable the boy to have professional live-in carers to look after him, and the equipment, hydrotherapy, eye-gaze, and other therapies he so desperately needs.   He will be able to purchase a home big enough to live in with his carers, and which is specially adapted for his wheelchair and equipment. He will be able to engage with life and has the best possible future.

His mother, Jane, had three solicitors before Edwina Rawson took over the case.
