FAILURE TO OBTAIN INFORMED CONSENT RESULTING IN DEATH – FIVE FIGURE SETTLEMENT
Attwaters Jameson Hill’s Medical Negligence team recovered damages in five figures for the mother of a boy who died after orthopaedic surgery for a dislocated hip at a leading hospital. The case was on the basis there was a lack of informed consent in that there was a failure to properly advise, before surgery, of the risks involved, and that if appropriate advice had been provided, consent for surgery at that time would not have been given and therefore he would not have died.
