Looking back over the first six months of this year, we have been delighted to note that our average settlement figure has been £400,000 with our highest award at over £1.25million.

Cases which have settled so far this year have focused on a wide variety of medical issues from cauda equina syndrome to third degree tears and compartment syndrome.

Third and fourth degree tears can cause permanent and debilitating symptoms for women who have suffered undiagnosed perineal damage during childbirth. Where this outcome is the result of clinical negligence, a successful compensation claim can help the woman to cope with her on-going problems.

Compartment syndrome develops when the pressure inside a muscle compartment builds to the point where it impedes muscle and nerve function. It can occasionally occur as a result of prolonged surgery and may be considered as negligent.

We are pleased that our expertise and commitment to client care has ensured that our clients have received not only fair compensation for their pain and suffering but also a sense that justice has been done.

As a recent client commented, ‘I cannot thank Lucy, Paul, and their team at Glynns enough for all the work they did in achieving this, as well as the vindication that I was treated negligently, and I have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them to anyone who may have the misfortune to find themselves in a similar situation as myself.’
