Medical negligence / NHS
X’s husband received care at an NHS hospital that directly resulted in his death. X instructed us to represent her and her late husband at the inquest into his death and we were able to ensure that the coroner ruled that his death was caused by the negligent care. We then sued the NHS trust and obtained £80,000 in damages.
X’s husband was past retirement age, but the loss of his pension meant that X had to continue to work well into what would have been her retirement. You can never truly compensate someone for the loss a loved one, particularly a spouse, but we were able to secure damages to get X a settlement that meant she could retire comfortably.
