Client’s Mother


Clinical negligence – midwifery and obstetric management

Name: BP

Liability agreed in 2015

Severe brain injury

Compensation expected to be between £5 million and £10 million - needs 24 hour care

The NHS, which complains so vigorously about claimant lawyers’ costs, defended this claim until it was only seven weeks away from trial. The cost of doing that must have run into hundreds of thousands of pounds, and yet they gave in almost completely at the end.

The midwives and junior obstetricians had delayed delivering the baby for as much as 16 hours, as a result of which he is very badly brain damaged, and will never live independently, or work.

Do we have any more info on this, to make it more uniform in length across the Case Reports - e.g. the accounting breakdown figures?
