William Latimer-Sayer appears for successful Claimant in record medical negligence award case


Cloisters barrister, William Latimer-Sayer, led by Susan Rodway QC, appeared for the successful Claimant in a case that saw the highest ever medical clinical negligence award in history.

The High Court ruled today that United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust must pay £14.6 million for birth injuries to James Robshaw, after failing to carry out a Caesarean section on his mother Suzanne Adams and properly monitoring her during labour.

Her son James suffered catastrophic injuries as a result of obstetric negligence. Liability was admitted.

Instructing solicitor: Denise Stephens at Shoosmiths.

For judgment read: James Robshaw (a child by his mother and litigation friend Suzanne Adams) v Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust.
