NHS misdiagnosis compensation after hip problem not properly treated

1 minute read

We bought a claim for dawn and negotiated damages for her of £33,500.

We secured £33,500 to help a little girl whose hip problems were not properly diagnosed and treated.

A problem with Dawn’s* hip was spotted soon after her birth and a radiologist recommended she have an ultrasound at six to eight weeks old, but the scan was never done.

A consultant paediatrician failed to mention the recommendation or to carry out the scan.

When Dawn was not quite a year old it was discovered that her left leg was five centimetres longer than the right. Had the recommended scan been done, treatment would have been straightforward and Dawn’s legs would have been normal.

Instead, she has had to undergo surgery and been left with scars.
