£13m compensation awarded to brain-damaged boy

An 11-year-old boy who suffered severe brain damage after his birth has received a compensation package of £13m to cover a lifetime of care and support.

What happened?

The young boy, who cannot be identified, has the ‘mind of a six-year-old’ – with no prospect of improvement – and needs constant care after his abnormally low sugar levels were not treated during his birth.

As well as a severe learning disability and profound behavioural issues, the boy is blind with weakness down his left side, and has speech problems. Despite his problems, however, he has been described as an “incredibly happy and lovely boy” who enjoys weekly outings to go swimming, bowling, or to McDonald’s.

NHS compensation

Walsall Hospitals NHS trust was ordered to pay a lump sum of £1.45m and annual index-linked payments of £88,000 until the boy is 16, then £120,000 until he is 20 and £145,000 a year from then on.

Payments will also be made to cover physiotherapy, occupational therapy, additional holiday costs and loss of earnings.

If you have been affected by medical negligence, and you would like expert advice, contact the Hampson Hughes Solicitors Medical Negligence Team today on 0151 242 1025 or email medicalnegligence@hampsonhughes.com
