  • Injury Following Unnecessary Gynaecological Surgery

    13 November 2017

    Our client had sustained an injury further to gynaecological surgery, which was deemed unnecessary and negligently carried out. Our client had been suffering from mid-cycle pain and was referred by her GP to a private surgeon who changed her plan of management from conservative management to surgical intervention, without fully advising of the possible risks and complications. Our client had been left with ongoing urinary dysfunction which has impacted on her work and daily life, and the unnecessary surgery meant that she could no longer give birth naturally.…

  • Delayed Diagnosis of Foot Fracture

    27 October 2017

Her foot was swollen and bruised and the hospital missed the fracture, as well as the other abnormalities that were visible on the x-rays. The hospital should have placed our client’s foot in a cast and told her not to weight bear.…

  • Twin Pregnancies and Cerebral Palsy

    26 October 2017

    We have been instructed in several cases where twin pregnancies have been negligently mismanaged and where one twin ended up with brain damage resulting in cerebral palsy. Multiple pregnancies carry extra risk for both mother and baby. This means that extra care needs to be taken, experienced doctors need to be involved and there should be additional monitoring.…

  • Brain Injury at Birth Due to Clinical Negligence

    20 October 2017

    ​W’s mother was right at the end of her first pregnancy when the baby stopped kicking. She went to the hospital. The midwife hooked her up to a CTG and reassured her all was well. So she went home. The next day the baby still had not moved. A good friend told W’s mum that this really was not right and urged her to return to the hospital. An emergency caesarean section was carried out. Baby W survived, but was in a poor condition and went on to be diagnosed with cerebral palsy. It turned out that the first CTG trace had actually been very abnormal – the placenta was not doing enough to support the baby as it got bigger.…
