Notable Cases

G W -v- Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust – Acting for the family of a man who passed away during negligent surgery, Michael secured £80,000 for his wife.

L S -v- Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust – Michael managed to prove that the Defendant did not provide a ‘call bell’ to allow the client to call for assistance. We obtained telephone records to show that the client had to call the hospital from her bed; leading to a settlement in this case of negligent iron infusion.
