A v UHDB NHS Foundation Trust


Dates of case
July 2021

High Court clinical negligence case. Lionel Stride (instructed by Mathew Smith of Slater & Gordon) represented a man who had suffered an amputation of his right leg resulting from the alleged failure to diagnose vascular issues (aorta-iliac arterial disease) between 2010 and 2016. This ultimately led to an above knee amputation, as opposed to receiving angioplasty treatment that would have saved his leg.

Breach of duty, causation and quantum (including life expectancy) remained in dispute. Claims for future loss included accommodation (Swift calculation), professional care, prosthetics and home adaptations. The claim settled at close to £1 million, which took into account reduced life expectancy from pre-morbid conditions but with no material discount for litigation risk on the issues of breach of duty or causation.
