Medical negligence victory for woman paralysed in accident
Posted on 8th January 2021 at 12:31
Sharon Hannington, now 47 years old, was hit by an ice cream van as a child and suffered serious spinal injuries. Over the years that followed she underwent multiple procedures including having both legs amputated.
Despite having kidney problems, the Hull Royal Infirmary failed to spot a blockage, depsite having written in Ms Hannington's notes that they suspected a blockage.
Ultimately Ms Hannington suffered kidney failure and underwent a kidney transplant. Ms Hannington took legal advice and commenced a claim for medical negligence stating that, because of the hospital's negligence, she had suffered end-stage renal failure, urinary infections and a poor quality of life.
A six year legal battle followed and days before the case was due to appear at the High Court in London, Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust offered Ms Hannington a five figure out-of-Court settlement figure.
Ms Hannington's solicitor has commented and Hull and East Yorkshire Hospital NHS Trust have released a statement. You can read more by clicking here.
