MRH were instructed at the very end of May 2013 on behalf of N in relation to a case of clinical negligence. MRH accepted instructions even though the time in which to issue Court proceedings was due to expire in the near future. N suffered a knee injury whilst playing football. Upon attending A&E, N was diagnosed with a minor soft tissue injury despite x-rays suggesting a more serious injury had occurred. A little over 4 weeks later, N was diagnosed as suffering a complete rupture of the patellar tendon which required emergency surgery within 24 hours of the diagnosis. Fortunately the delay in diagnosis had minimal affect on N and the long term prognosis for his injury. MRH successfully argued the diagnosis of the ruptured patellar tendon should have been considered based on the original x-ray taken when N first attended Hospital. The Defendant Hospital Trust eventually admitted breach of duty and shortly thereafter entered into settlement negotiations. MRH were able to obtain significant damages for N less than 12 months after first being instructed.
