£650,000 for boy blinded by delay in brain tumour diagnosis

1 minute read

In one case we dealt with, we secured £650,000 to assist an eight-year-old boy to cope with life after being blinded when there was a delay in diagnosing a brain tumour.

Our investigations showed that had the tumour been diagnosed earlier Imran* would not have lost his sight.

A paediatrician failed to properly examine Imran’s eyes when he was referred to her. He had had difficulties moving his head and holding it up, bad headaches and had been sick.

Two weeks later an optician raised concerns about the pressure in Imran’s eyes and a tumour was found at the top of his spine which required emergency brain and spinal surgery.

The compensation secured will help to support Imran to deal with the difficulties he now faces during his life.
