£7.2 million settlement achieved for boy with cerebral palsy caused by delayed birth


Cloisters’ barristers Simon Dyer and Lisa Sullivan successfully represented a child with cerebral palsy in ABC v Kettering General Hospital NHS Trust.

The boy, now 12, suffers from cerebral palsy as a result of delayed birth at the hospital.

The case, heard at an approval hearing before Mrs Justice Nicola Davies, settled for a capitalised equivalent sum of £7.2 million. The compensation package will include funds for expert treatment, rehabilitation and care to allow the child to reach his maximum potential.
