Medical Negligence Elbow Surgery
Mrs Burton from Bury, Gtr Manchester instructed Mulderrigs in a medical negligence claim.
She fell down stairs at home and suffered a serious fracture of her left elbow.
A surgeon assessed the injury and he decided to carry out an operation.
But the surgeon got things wrong and the surgery only made things worse.
Mrs Burton was left with a reduced range of movement and permanent pain as a result of the operation.
She also required further major surgery to insert an artificial elbow joint.
Mrs Burton had worked as a senior staff nurse but couldn’t return to active duty.
Mulderrigs took on the medical negligence claim against the negligent surgeons.
Our medical expert delivered a report to say that the surgeon’s error had made things much worse for our client.
A specialist barrister gave advice and court proceedings were issued.
The NHS Trust then agreed to negotiate with us.
We helped our client settle her case for £200,000.
