WE ACTED FOR BEN'S WIFE WHO ASKED US TO BRING A CLAIM AND WE SUCCESSFULLY PROVED THAT BEN'S GP HAD BEEN NEGLIGENT.

Ben

Ben had tests for prostate cancer in 2003. Unfortunately his GP did not investigate the results of his tests, and so he was never referred for treatment. When he developed further symptoms in 2009 and was re-referred to hospital, the cancer had spread to his lymph nodes and was incurable.

His wife had suffered a serious injury to her spine years before and relied on Ben for care. In addition to the grief and devastation that came from the loss of her husband she struggled to manage at home.

She asked us to bring a claim and we successfully proved that the GP had been negligent. We were able to negotiate damages of £475,000. This included money to meet the costs of paying for the care and assistance she now requires and what Ben would otherwise have done for her at home.
