Jonathan Zimmern recovered compensation for the family of a man who suffered damage to his urethra and psychiatric injury following multiple failed insertions of a catheter.
Jonathan negotiated a settlement of £19,000 for Isaac’s family in a medical negligence claim against Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust.
Isaac originally brought the claim for the injuries he suffered to his urethra during several attempts to insert a catheter during his admission to Colchester General Hospital in July 2008. The period in hospital during which the attempts were being made to insert the catheters was particularly shocking and painful.
Although the damage to his urethra healed, he suffered psychiatric injury as a result of his experience and he required care from his wife whilst at home.
Sadly, Isaac died in October 2010 of an unrelated condition. After his death, his claim was taken over by his daughter and personal representative, Deborah, who accepted an offer of £19,000 to settle the claim.
The case was conducted under "a no win, no fee" agreement.
