MTB act in medical negligence case – Trust to pay £5m
Beth Allen and Ernie Telford of MTB recently acted on behalf of a disabled child in her case against the Northern Health and Social Care Trust. A settlement was agreed between the parties and was approved by Madam Justice McBride at the High Court yesterday.
Beth commented “Our client suffers from cerebral palsy and associated complex health needs. Her devoted family have provided 24 hour care for her since birth without financial assistance. This settlement will now enable our client to enjoy a more comfortable life with access to care and equipment which will hopefully make daily activities easier for her and her family.
Our client is currently only 8 years old, but we obtained a Periodical Payments Order in her case, which ensures that she will have care provision for the rest of her life. These Orders bring peace of mind to parents whose paramount concern is ensuring that their child is provided for, for life, regardless of their age or family circumstances in the future.”
