Medical Malpractice Lawyers London
Any London residents who have suffered from an incident which they believe constitutes as medical malpractice or medical negligence should contact Neinsteins’ medical malpractice lawyers.
It’s unfortunate to read about medical malpractice claims in the news since when we visit a hospital or a doctor’s office, we always hope and expect that our doctors and nurses are doing everything in their power to ensure that we’re properly cared for.
But they do occur. When you read about it in the media, many claims handled by medical malpractice lawyers seem to offer substantial payouts. But the reality is that many of these victims are no longer able to independently care for themselves and will require around the clock care, which leads to costs quickly adding up. There’s also a chance that they will never be able to care for themselves due to severe health issues such as a brain injury or a stroke, which severely impacts their lifestyle.
An example of this is a case where a young single mother was left a paraplegic and paralyzed from the neck down. In 2008, the mother suffered severe headaches which left her numb, suffering from dizziness and the inability to coherently talk. She was taken to the Hanover hospital by a friend, but after the doctor’s treatment didn’t result in any improvements she was transferred to the London hospital. Two days after her headaches, she suffered a stroke that resulted in her current condition.
In 2014, a judge ruled in favour of the victim and the doctor who was responsible for her initial treatment was ordered to pay $15 million in damages. The judge ruled that the doctor misdiagnosis of the victim’s symptoms and the prescribed treatment to lower her blood pressure led to a blood clot that resulted in a stroke.
The victim, who was a bank employee, is no longer able to work or care for her young child and the damage awarded from this case will be directed towards covering her loss of income and her continuing care.
