Multi-million pound payout for Sheffield boy
A Sheffield boy has received a multi-million pound pay out after sustaining permanent brain injuries during his birth.
Bradley Kendall, who’s now 14-years-old, was born three months prematurely, and suffers with mild spastic diplegia and impairment in cognitive function which will affect him for the rest of his life.
His parents, William and Joanne, believed his injuries were the fault of healthcare staff present at the birth, and today have accepted a multi-million pound settlement at the High Court in London.
The money will be used to pay the enormous costs of care that Bradley, who is partially dependant on the care of others, will need for life
Benjamin Browne, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust barrister, said:
“This settlement accurately reflects the strength of the parties’
case, but will undoubtedly produce proper provision
for Bradley in the long-term.
“There will be money available to fund his care and case
management needs for the rest of his life.
“It is quite apparent that Bradley is a very charming young man.
That emerges from all the reports and witness statements.
“He has made remarkable progress, despite the disability from which he
suffers, and has no doubt been a great joy to his parents.
“Nonetheless, his disabilities have imposed a formidable burden of care
upon them. It is a burden they have discharged with
cheerfulness and great affection for their son.”
