AVOIDABLE SUICIDE – SIX FIGURE SETTLEMENT
We settled a claim on behalf of the Estate and dependents of a gentleman who suffered serious psychiatric complications following maxillo-facial surgery.

The settlement included damages under the Human Rights Act 1998 as there was a clear systemic failure within the Trust to provide adequate psychiatric care.
