Mr T, now aged 24, sustained a fracture of his left tibia and fibula.  He experienced a delay in diagnosis of compartment syndrome at  the Defendant hospital leading to severe muscle and nerve damage in his left foot and leg resulting in permanent deformity, reduced immobility, loss of function, pain and psychiatric after effects.

The Defendant accepted the delay in diagnosis, however, they denied the extent of the injury, loss and or damage sustained as a consequence of the delay rather than the original traumatic injury.

Court proceedings were issued but before the matter reached trial we were able to agree a settlement and Mr T received £300,000.
