Moosa-Duke settle complex clinical negligence cases

Posted By admin - 19th September 2019

At Moosa-Duke Solicitors, we strive to achieve the best result for our clients who have suffered negligence and have terrible injuries as a result. We have achieved settlement in a large number of complex cases, some of significant value.

In 2014, we secured a £3,000,000.00 settlement in a wrongful birth claim, where a baby was born with a significant medical condition. It was the claimant’s case that there was a failure to warn her about the condition during her pregnancy and the fact that the baby could have been born with problems.

In 2018, we used our expert knowledge to settle two Cauda Equina Syndrome (CES) cases. The first was settled for £1,000,000.00, plus £75,000.00 to be paid annually for 10 years. There were multiple missed opportunities to diagnose CES, which caused a delay in treatment. As a result, our client was left with a number of life changing disabilities, such as total bowel incontinence, total urinary incontinence, sexual dysfunction, weakness in both legs, bilateral leg & calf pain, low back pain and psychiatric damage.

The second CES case was settled for £700,000.00 after there was a delay in referring our client for an MRI scan. The delay meant that our client now walks with crutches and is no longer able to work.

In August 2019, we settled a case for £1,000,000.00 after our client had to undergo a below knee amputation as a result of a delay in diagnosing deep vein thrombosis (DVT). He now has a prosthetic leg and his ability to work has been seriously affected.
