Contentious Trust and Probate Quarterly Round-Up: Q2 2020
We represented a Claimant who had a very difficult birth with her first child. Following that delivery, she was advised to have a caesarean section. When she became pregnant with her second child, she explained the advice given about future caesarean deliveries. Her request for a caesarean was refused, and our client was given an incorrect advice regarding the percentage risk of experiencing further vaginal tearing. The Claimant’s gestational diabetes was not well monitored, and she went into spontaneous labour, delivering a large baby. Her labour was poorly managed.
The Claimant suffers from urinary and faecal incontinence as a result of the birth being mismanaged. These would have been avoided had she had the requested caesarean section. The claim settled for £130,000.
Client confidentiality is of utmost importance to us. Due to the particular nature of this case, we are not at liberty to share further details here. However, if you would like to discuss your own experience please call us directly on 020 7814 1200.
