Settlement reached in clinical negligence claim

Acting on a no-win-no-fee basis, Curzon Green recently secured a significant settlement for their client who suffered serious Category 4 pressure sores following a stay in hospital which in turn had led to greatly reduced mobility. The case involved complex arguments relating to causation which required a number of expert reports to be obtained and analysed. Careful consideration was also given to quantum as the client had substantial future care needs to be met by both private care workers and family members. The case was successfully settled through a formal mediation, with the client due to receive £90,000 in damages, plus his legal fees.
