Medical negligence victim’s fight for damages
Mrs H’s remarkable story is a testament to her strength and the unwavering support she received from our dedicated Medical Negligence team at Wolferstans Solicitors.
It all started when Mrs. H had a foot fusion and bone graft surgery, a step taken to relieve her arthritic foot pain. Seven months later, she underwent a revision surgery, filled with hope for relief. Sadly, the outcome was far from her expectations. The surgery was unsuccessful, leaving her in excruciating pain, reliant on crutches just to move.
In addition to the negligent surgery, there was a failure to arrange imaging scans, despite the complete lack of healing in her foot and ankle, and the constant pain she was experiencing. No definitive plan was put in place, and she was condemned to further pain and suffering, and additional procedures.
Before these life-altering events, Mrs H led an active, independent life, enjoying gardening, exercise, and even participating in a local sports league. She was the rock of her family, always there to support her children and grandchildren. However, daily tasks became daunting, and she needed assistance with cooking, chores, transport, and personal care.
Fueled by determination, Mrs H sought legal assistance and turned to Peter Tassart from Wolferstans' Medical Negligence team. Peter and his dedicated colleague, Emma Laity, worked tirelessly to fight for Helen, ultimately securing a £900,000 compensation settlement.
Relieved by the settlement, Mrs H was able to transform her life and her home, regaining her independence and breaking free from the isolation her injuries had imposed.
Reflecting on her journey, Mrs H expressed, “I felt I had the best solicitor possible to fight my case. I found the whole process to be as stress-free as it could possibly be, and I always felt that they were both doing their best to achieve a good outcome for me. There was never any delay in responding to my inquiries, and I felt completely confident in their professionalism. I am so grateful to them both.”
It was an honour to stand by our client’s side, and our medical negligence team is elated to have played a part in her journey towards healing and strength.
