Brain injury as a result of bowel surgery errors

We act for Ms R who was born with Down’s Syndrome. In the early months of her life, Ms R’s bowel perforated. Ms R was rushed into surgery but she suffered from peritonitis, septic shock and hypotension. As a result, she sustained a brain injury which has severely affected her cognitive development, her vision, her mobility and her speech.  Judgment has been entered on Ms R’s behalf and her claim will be finally quantified when she is a little older. It is anticipated that the value of her compensation will be very significant.
