We have recovered £4.5 million in compensation in a delayed diagnosis claim after our client suffered brain damaged because of a delay in treating a tumour.
Samantha Critchley pursued a delayed diagnosis claim against Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust for Frances Bowra, 48, who was left with brain damage because of the delay in treating her brain tumour.
Frances collapsed at her home seven years ago after suffering from violent headaches and vomiting. She was taken to the A&E department at Maidstone General District Hospital.
Our expert evidence indicated that Frances' condition deteriorated because her brain tumour was not diagnosed as quickly as it should have been and that there was a delay in transferring her to King's College Hospital in south London where she received emergency treatment.
The trust has apologised for the errors made and said lessons had been learned.
Mr Bowra said: "You may think £4.5 million is compensation. No figure compensates. You're so lucky to be able to open your eyes and see the sunshine in the morning. All of her wishes, all of her hopes, no longer exist. They cannot be fulfilled."
All enquiries are completely free of charge and we will investigate all funding options for you including no win, no fee.
