Blackwater Law secure £1m for client misdiagnosed by doctors

Blackwater Law secured a settlement of £1million for a client who suffered a serious stroke which could have been avoided but for a misdiagnosis by doctors.

Blackwater Law medical negligence solicitors successfully represented Mr L in making a medical misdiagnosis claim after his transient ischemic attack (TIA) was misdiagnosed and therefore Mr L was not identified at being at risk of a more serious stroke event. Mr L subsequently suffered a severe stroke with life-changing health implications.

Jason Brady, Head of Blackwater Law, commented:

“The team here are very pleased with the settlement achieved for the client. This compensation will provide our client with the ability to pay for professional care and financial stability in light of the fact he is unable to return to work. We hope too that lessons have been learned at the defendant hospital to reduce the risk of future cases of stroke misdiagnosis.”
