William Latimer Sayer and Catriona Stirling appear in injury case where High Court awards record damages to English national

Judgment has today been handed down by the High Court in the case of Totham v King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, following a December 2014 trial.

Cloisters barristers, William Latimer-Sayer and Catriona Stirling represented the successful claimant, a seven year old girl from south London, who suffered serious injuries during her birth at King’s College Hospital in 2007.

 

The award capitalises to over £10.1 million and is believed to be the highest ever court award made to an English national in a personal injury or clinical negligence case following a contested trial.
