DOCTORS SHOULD HAVE REALISED STEPHANIE HAD SUFFERED A TRANSIENT ISCHAEMIC ATTACK AFTER GIVING BIRTH, BUT SHE WAS NOT TREATED.

Stephanie’s Story

Stephanie had a transient ischaemic attack (mini-stroke or “TIA”) after giving birth. Doctors should have realised this and referred her to the specialist unit at Treliske, Cornwall. She was not treated and went on to suffer a major stroke. Stephanie was unconscious and locked-in for several weeks. She had partial paralysis which affected her ability to walk and talk. She also struggled to look after her baby and her young child.

How We Helped

We negotiated damages of £400,000 for Stephanie, which transformed the family’s lives by enabling them to buy their own home, pay for care when needed and meet the costs arising from her disability. In the end, Stephanie made a good enough recovery that she was able to return to work.
