Birmingham Mother Wins Five-Figure Medical Negligence Settlement
8th November 2013
A mother from Birmingham has received a substantial settlement in a medical negligence claim against Heart of England NHS Trust after a bacterial infection was not diagnosed, eventually leading to her requiring a hysterectomy.
Hayley Sanders, now 23, was just 19 when she required an emergency caesarean section while giving birth to son Jayden on December 27th 2009.
While she received a number of examinations, staff at the hospital did not act on four different high temperature readings, discharging her. Two days later, she returned to hospital and was sent to the high dependency unit, where she went into a coma.
Doctors had to perform the hysterectomy in order to save her life.
With the help of medical negligence solicitors, she received an undisclosed five-figure settlement from the NHS Trust, receiving enough money to cover her lost earnings and the cost of future and past care. However, the hospital did not admit liability.
