£1,600 Compensation Awarded for Road Traffic Accident

Image of a silver car damaged after a road traffic accident

Our Road Traffic Accident team were instructed by a client at the beginning of the year after they were injured in a collision.

Mr Gareth Welby was involved in a Road Traffic Accident (RTA) on the 16th March 2016, in St Albans, Hertfordshire.

At the time of the incident, Mr Welby was travelling along Hatfield Road, St Albans. The Defendant, who was driving a Silver Chevrolet, emerged from a side road when it was unsafe to do so and collided with the driver’s side of Mr Welby’s vehicle.

As a result of the collision, Mr Welby’s vehicle sustained momentous damage and he suffered whiplash injuries, along with discomfort to his lower back and pain to his chest wall. Our client’s hobby of attending the gym was also restricted following the accident.

Liability was initially denied as the defendant alleged it was our client who was at fault stating they had acted negligently in attempting to overtake the defendant’s vehicle.

As a result we had no choice but to issue Court Proceedings.

However, prior to any trial the defendant put forward an offer of settlement in the sum of £1,600.

Commenting on the service, Mr Welby said:

“The claims process has been really easy. I haven’t had to worry about a thing. I received outstanding support from Hampson Hughes Solicitors with lots of updates along the way.

“I felt that I could call or email at any point would like to thank the team for their help.”

Over £4,000 Secured for Road Traffic Accident

Our Road Traffic Accident team were instructed by a client towards the end of last year after they were injured in a collision.

Incident

Mr Ian Strain was involved in a Road Traffic Accident on the 29th July 2015, in Twickenham, London.

At the time of the incident, Mr Strain was approaching a crossroads in his vehicle, a Skoda Octavia. The traffic lights at said crossroads were not functioning at the time and so Mr Strain slowed down on his approach. However, as our client was travelling along the main road and continuing straight on, he proceeded through the crossroads.

As he drove through the junction, the Defendant’s vehicle collided with the rear offside of Mr Stain’s Skoda with enough force to spin the car around. The Defendant’s vehicle continued forward, crashing into railings on the opposite side of the road. The police and ambulance service attended the scene.

As a result of the collision, Mr Strain’s vehicle sustained significant damage and he suffered injuries including severe strain to his neck and right elbow. His symptoms persisted for a number of months following the accident.

Successful outcome

Liability was originally denied and as such we had no choice but to issue Court Proceedings. Prior to any Trial, Mr Strain accepted an offer to settle his case.

Our expert RTA team managed to successfully secure a total of over £4,000 compensation for Mr Strain.

Following the outcome, Mr Strain said:

Hampson Hughes Solicitors and all the staff I dealt with bent over backwards to ensure success in my claim for compensation following the car crash I was involved in.”

Woman Convicted of Gross Negligence Manslaughter

Black and white image of slit lamp used by optometrists

In a landmark case, an optometrist has been handed a two year suspended prison sentence following the death of a young boy, whose symptoms of a life-threatening brain condition were not picked up during a routine eye test.

Incident

When eight year old Vincent Barker visited a branch of Boots in Ipswich for an eye test, he was suffering with swollen optic discs. Honey Rose, the optometrist carrying out the test, failed to spot Vincent’s swollen optic discs which is a symptom of hydrocephalus, or fluid on the brain. The eight year old died around five months after the test in July 2012.

Ipswich Crown Court heard how Ms Rose had failed to examine the backs of Vincent’s eyes with an ophthalmoscope during the test, and that she had also failed to examine retinal photos of Vincent that were taken by a colleague.

Sentencing

Sentencing the 35 year old, Judge Jeremy Stuart-Smith said that although the breach of duty was a ‘single lapse’, the seriousness of the incident meant that it was a criminal act. The court also heard that after discovering that Vincent had died, Ms Rose attempted to ‘cover up’ her failings by claiming that Vincent had showed signs of photophobia. In an account that was dismissed as false by Judge Stuart-Smith, Ms Rose said that Vincent had not been cooperating with her at the time of the test.

Ms Rose, of East Ham in east London, was convicted of gross negligence manslaughter at Ipswich crown court. She was also ordered to complete 200 hours of unpaid work and given a 24-month supervision order.

The ruling is thought to be the first conviction of an optometrist for gross negligence manslaughter. Judge Stuart-Smith told Ms Rose:

“You simply departed from your normal practice in a way that was completely untypical for you, a one-off, for no good reason.”

He went on to say that there was “nothing in [Vincent’s] general presentation that should have rung particular alarm bells for you” and that Ms Rose was “generally competent”.

He added that an immediate custodial sentence was not essential to highlight ‘the importance of optometrists properly discharging their duty to patients’ due to the fact the case had been so highly publicised.

‘Our loss should have been prevented’

Praising Vincent’s family for showing ‘dignity and restraint’ throughout the trial, Judge Stuart-Smith noted that they called for leniency when sentencing. A written statement from Vincent’s mother Joanne Barker said:

“The knowledge our loss should have been prevented and Vinnie should have been saved is intolerable to live with.”

Telling the court how Ms Rose had worked ‘extremely hard’ to qualify in India before moving to the UK, Ian Stern QC, mitigating, said:

“The loss of that vocation, which undoubtedly will happen when she comes before a fitness-to-practise panel, will affect her self-respect as someone who worked so hard to obtain those qualifications.”

He added that the case had “sent shockwaves round the optometric practice”.

Jonathan Rees QC, prosecuting, said that a letter from the Association of Optometrists expressed that there had been an increase in practitioners’ concerns regarding the way they carry out their jobs.

Woman Discovers she has Poisoned Bones after Misdiagnosis

A woman has discovered that she has a life threatening bone condition after previously being dismissed by multiple doctors.

Misdiagnosed

Victoria Mann, 33, was told by a trainee physiotherapist that her bones were poisoned after she was instructed to attend physiotherapy when medical professionals told her the pain in her leg was to do with her ligaments or tendons.

Victoria has since been diagnosed with osteomyelitis; a disease which if discovered early on can be treated with antibiotics. However, it was not spotted early and after 14 operations to try and halt the spread of the disease; Victoria says her leg has been left looking ‘as though a shark has taken a bite out of it’.

Victoria said:

“When I first went with a sore knee they said it was probably a blood clot and sent me home.

“But I was in agony so I went back and they said it was a muscle-wasting disease.

“They then told me it was the tendons or ligaments and sent me for physio.”

Victoria, of Hull, East Yorkshire, claims that the trainee physiotherapist pointed out a large black abscess on the back of her leg within only minutes of seeing her, something that doctors had failed to notice. She added:

“The trainee immediately saw something wasn’t right – as my leg had ballooned.”

Left unable to move

Victoria has been left unable to move and now fears that if she stands or puts too much weight on her leg it could shatter. Victoria went on to say:

“I will never fully recover or walk properly again. I won’t be able to play with the girls in the park or go swimming.”

Mike Wright, Chief Nurse at East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, the hospital at which Victoria received treatment, has apologised for any distress caused. He said:

“We have subsequently investigated the concerns Miss Mann raises, including those in relation to timeliness of diagnosis, and we have responded to her about these directly.

“We are sorry if Miss Mann feels let down by the Trust and would like to apologise for any distress she has experienced.”

Multiple ‘Never events’ Reported by Merseyside Hospitals

Between May 2015 and April 2016, a total of eleven ‘never events’ were reported by various hospitals within the Merseyside area, according to NHS England.

The potentially life-changing mistakes are labelled ‘never events’ as they should never happen and each time one occurs, it must be reported to authorities. The ‘never event’ is then investigated in order to ensure that similar blunders do not reoccur.

Merseyside Hospitals – ‘Never events’

  • Five cases of ‘wrong site surgery’

    A ‘wrong site surgery’ is when an operation is either performed on the wrong part of the body or, in some extreme cases, the wrong patient. Since May 2015, cases of ‘wrong site surgery’ were reported by the following hospitals: Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen hospital trust in August 2015 and January 2016; Wirral Community NHS Trust in July 2015 and Alder Hey in June 2015 and January 2016.

  • Two cases of drugs administrated by the ‘wrong route’

    Such cases include intravenous drugs taken orally and vice versa. Such occurrences can lead to dangerous side effects, depending on the type of drug being taken. Arrowe Park and Clatterbridge hospitals reported a case in October 2015, as did Southport and Ormskirk Hospitals in November 2015.

  • A feeding tube wrongly inserted into a patient’s lungs

    Gastric tubes can be wrongly inserted into the respiratory tract of a patient, instead of the gastrointestinal tract i.e. fed into the lungs instead of the stomach. This sort of ‘never even’ can be fatal if not detected and corrected immediately. Such an incident was reported by Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen Hospital trust in December last year.

  • A foreign object left inside a patient after surgery

    Items left inside patients after surgery include surgical instruments such as scalpels, as well as needles, wires, sponges and towels. Such mistakes most likely require further surgery in order to remove the object. In December 2015, the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen trust reported an incident in which an object was left inside a patient following surgery.

  • A patient given the wrong implant or prosthesis

    When the wrong implant or prosthesis is inserted into a patient, there is most likely corrective surgery required – leading to major disruption for the individual. A patient at the Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital was given the wrong implant or prosthesis in October 2015.

  • A patient given overdose of insulin

    Such mistakes are often managed safely; however in extreme instances too much insulin can lead to seizures, unconsciousness and even fatalities. In September 2015, a patient at Liverpool Women’s Hospital was given an overdose of insulin.

‘We take ‘never events’ extremely seriously’

Addressing the incidents reported, the medical director of the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust, Dr Peter Williams, said:

“We take ‘never events’ extremely seriously, we are open about them, we learn from them and we take action to make further improvements in the care we provide to patients.”

Meanwhile, a spokesman for Alder Hey the following:

“We take any incident extremely seriously and conduct a thorough investigation to identify the cause of any incident, recommend key learnings and reduce the likelihood of similar incidents happening in the future.”

Director of nursing and midwifery at Liverpool Women’s Hospital, Dianne Brown, added:

“The trust does not experience many ‘never events’.

“However, when we do, the public can be assured that we investigate them thoroughly and try to learn as much from them as we can so as to ensure they do not happen again.”

Toddler Suffering from Stevens-Johnson Syndrome is Misdiagnosed

Three year old Joel Greaves nearly lost his life after doctors misdiagnosed what turned out to be a deadly rare disease as chicken pox.

Mistaken for chicken pox

Doctors first diagnosed the toddler with chicken pox, after he developed a condition that caused his skin to swell and blister. However, after Joel was left fighting for his life on a ventilator, doctors realised that he was in fact suffering from the very rare and life threatening skin condition, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome.

Stevens-Johnson Syndrome

Stevens-Johnson Syndrome is normally a reaction to medication or an infection. Doctors believe that Joel developed the condition as an allergic reaction to medication he was being given for croup. He was admitted to a specialist burns unit where his blistered skin was wrapped in bandages and his breathing supported with a ventilator. Doctors told his mother to prepare for the worst, however he was released from hospital after nine weeks.

Speaking of the ordeal, after which Joel has had to learn to walk, talk and eat again, his mother Tammy said:

‘Joel had suffered from chicken pox and his first symptoms of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome were spots all over his body.

‘He had suffered from chicken pox once before and the symptoms were very similar so we thought it was unlikely he
would have it for a second time – but we had no idea what else it could be.

‘That was until his whole body started to blister and his eyes were swollen shut.

‘Doctors soon realised Joel was actually suffering from a life-threatening allergic reaction, not chicken pox and we were left terrified as they battled to save our little boy.

‘They had no idea if he was going to survive as one-in-five die from the condition but we just had to hope and pray he’d pull through.

‘Joel was unrecognisable as his body was so swollen and he had to undergo an eight hour operation to remove all the dead skin.’

Miss Greaves went on to say:

‘I couldn’t be more thankful to all the hospital staff that saved Joel’s life, he was allowed home on December 8 and has minimal scars thanks to expert surgeons.

‘Joel was one of the lucky ones but if this condition isn’t diagnosed and treated quickly enough it can be fatal.’

Stevens-Johnsons Syndrome Awareness UK

Joel and his family are now receiving support from Stevens-Johnsons Syndrome Awareness UK, a charity that helps support those affected & spread awareness of the condition.

Founder of SJS Awareness UK, Thermutis Nadier Lawson said:

‘I am pleased little Joel’s eyes were not affected and he is making a good recovery.

‘We support those affected by providing them with an information pack to enlighten them about the condition as well as putting them in touch with others.’

*Road traffic accident statistics based on all road traffic accident claims accepted by Hampson Hughes Solicitors 2015-2016.

Official figures show A&E delays in England reach record level

New data released by NHS England for January shows that just 88.7% of patients were seen within four hours of arriving in A&E, the NHS have a target percentage of 95%. That is the worst monthly performance since the target was introduced in 2004.

However, NHS England have said that due to the record demand levels also recorded for the same month, a performance dip was ‘not surprising’.

Record demand levels include overall attendances increased by over 10% compared to January 2015 and emergency admissions and calls to the NHS 111 non emergency number saw a sharp rise.

Other key issues

January’s monthly performance report also highlighted other areas the NHS is struggling with:

• Key target for cancer patients to start treatment within 62 days of an urgent referral from a GP was missed for the 20th time in 21 months
• The number of people waiting six weeks or longer for a diagnosis was twice the amount expected
• Second month in a row that the target for patients needing a routine operation to be seen was not hit
• One in three patients waited longer than eight minutes for an ambulance to arrive, the eighth month in a row this target has been missed
• NHS 111 failed to hit its target to answer calls within 60 seconds

Another continued problem is the delays in discharging patients, with the second highest number of delays on record occurring in January. Such delays result in a backlog of patients, which in turn has an effect on A&E services.
Richard Barker, from NHS England, said:

“Against this backdrop it’s not surprising hospitals saw a dip in their performance and it is credit to all those working in emergency care that we are still admitting, treating and discharging almost nine in 10 patients within four hours

“Winter pressures have come late this year with a sustained cold period and an increase in seasonal infections.”

Extreme measures

The BBC reported in January that hospitals are increasingly being forced to take extreme measures in order to cope. Such measures include reports of GPs being advised to cut down on the number of hospital referrals and makeshift emergency treatment rooms are being set up outside A&E waiting areas. There have even been reports of hospitals cancelling multiple routine operations at once.

Dr Cliff Mann, of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine, said:

“It is now routine for many staff to arrive at work faced with congested and overcrowded departments in which it is impossible to deliver best care.

“Similarly many leave work, hours after their agreed finish time, exhausted by the scale of the task.”

According to John Appleby, of the King’s Fund, the NHS was facing a “perfect storm”.

“Today’s figures underline the scale of the challenge for NHS trusts struggling to meet demand for services within current financial constraints.

“Most trusts are operating with very high bed occupancy which makes it difficult to respond to unexpected fluctuations in admissions. This is compounded by delays in discharging patients, which prevents beds being freed up for new patients. Today’s figures suggest it will be a long winter for the NHS.”

Serious “Never Events” Still Occurring in NHS

NHS England has recorded almost 1,200 ‘unacceptable serious events’ that have occurred in hospitals over the past four years. Such errors, classified as “never events”, include objects being left inside bodies, falls through windows that were not properly secured, operations on the wrong patient and wrong limb and a kidney being removed instead of an ovary.

Steady Trend

The log of “never events” from the past four years, kept by NHS England, shows a relatively steady trend. Between April 2012 and March 2013, a total of 290 events were recorded, in 2013/2014 338 were recorded, in 2014/2015 there were 306. From April 2015 to December that same year, the last month of recorded figures, 254 incidents were recorded. However, this figure will be adjusted accordingly if and when there are further reports of “never events”.

In an interview with the Guardian last week, health secretary Jeremy Hunt stressed the need for healthcare staff to learn from their own mistakes, as well as those of others. Mr Hunt went on to say:

“I want to normalise openness and transparency.”

Over 1000 Errors Recorded

Errors that have been recorded include the removal of a fallopian tube instead of the patient’s appendix and the removal of an entire testicle instead of the cyst on it. In total for the year ending March 2015, there were 102 cases whereby a foreign object was left inside a body after a wound was stitched, 8 cases were the wrong eye was operated on and 27 cases in which the wrong tooth or teeth were removed. Within that same year there were four cases of misidentification of patients and two cases of a transferred prisoner escaping.

Over the past four years, in total, there have been over 420 patients who have suffered after having a foreign object left inside them after surgery. Objects include the likes of drill guides, swabs, scalpel blades, needles and gauzes.

There have been potentially fatal cases whereby feeding tubes have been inserted into a patient’s lungs instead of their stomach and more than 400 people have been left suffering due to “wrong site surgery”.

NHS England has also recorded cases within the last four years whereby the dosage of drugs given to a patient was too high. Other patients have suffered after being given the wrong type of joint replacement or implant and there have even been cases of patients receiving the wrong type of blood during a transfusion.

Hospital with Highest Number of Events

In terms of the number events that occur at each hospital trust, these are logged separately without any details of what the incident involves. For the year ending March 2015, with 9 events recorded in total, Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust had the highest number of “never events”.

A spokesperson for NHS England has said:

“One never event is too many and we mustn’t underestimate the effect on the patients concerned,

“However there are 4.6m hospital admissions that lead to surgical care each year and, despite stringent measures put in place, on rare occasions, these incidents do occur.

“To better understand the reasons why, in 2013 we commissioned a taskforce to investigate, leading to a new set of national standards being published last year specifically to support doctors, nurses and hospitals to prevent these mistakes. Any organisation that reports a serious incident is also expected to conduct its own investigation so it can learn and take action to prevent similar incidents from being repeated.”

Chief executive of the Patients Association, Katherine Murphy, said:

“It is a disgrace that such supposed ‘never’ incidents are still so prevalent. With all the systems and procedures that are in place within the NHS, how are such basic, avoidable mistakes still happening? There is clearly a lack of learning in the NHS.

“These patients have been very badly let down by utter carelessness. It is especially unforgivable to operate on the wrong organ, and many such mistakes can never be rectified.”
