You can see some examples of cases successfully completed below: Fourth degree Tear After Child Birth Our client experienced a severe 4th degree tear following childbirth. The tear had not healed properly a significant amount of time after the birth. She was experiencing almost constant pain and could not sit down or even use the toilet without being in serious discomfort.
First Claims saw this situation and her treatment as unacceptable as with proper care and attention she would have not have experienced such trauma. The correct medication was not prescribed by her doctors following her surgery.
To top this, the surgeon placed stitches in the wrong location which caused her further discomfort. After constantly being rudely spoken to and having her complaints ignored the infection came back for a second time and she contacted First Claims for advice about taking legal action.
We immediately saw evidence for a prescribing error, medical negligence and surgical negligence. Having been in intense pain for an unacceptable length of time bleeding began and she was rushed into surgery for an emergency caesarean.
However, it was too late. Her baby was born with severe brain damage and passed away before he had been alive for a week. Naturally our client was devastated.
Patient Dies After Contracting C Difficile Our client was suffering from a severe liver condition when admitted to hospital a few months ago.
Whilst in hospital he contracted the hospital superbug c-difficile which led to his death. First Claims believed that the hospital did not take into account how incredibly low his immune system was when he arrived in hospital and therefore failed to take appropriate precautions.
Mr B suffered a period of severe and prolonged oxygen deprivation during his birth which resulted in him sustaining permanent brain damage. Mr B has severe dystonic-athetoid cerebral palsy.
