Man Receives £600k Funds In Medical Negligence Claim

A man has secured funds in a medical negligence compensation claim after a popliteal aneurism was misdiagnosed, eventually leading to the amputation of his leg above the knee.

Gary Moore was diagnosed with a foot infection in 2009, despite the fact that his popliteal aneurism should have been successfully diagnosed. While he would have lost one or two toes had he been diagnosed in time, the delays led to him requiring an above-knee amputation.

He now requires help from his daughters and wife and was forced to stop working for his business.

In a hearing on June 25th 2013, Plymouth NHS Trust admitted liability in his medical negligence claim, and it was reported on October 23rd that Mr Moore had received £600,000 in interim payments. This will allow him to move to more suitable accommodation and purchase the prosthetics he requires.

His claim is still ongoing, however, as requests for other funds were rejected. His claim was pursued with Jill Greenfield and her associates from Field Fisher Waterhouse.
