H v L NHS Foundation Trust


Dates of case
3 June 2021

High Court clinical negligence case. Lionel Stride (instructed by Mathew Smith of Slater & Gordon) represented a man who had been misdiagnosed with metastatic cancer rather than (transient) inflammatory disease, leading to intensive pharmacological treatment that caused permanent physical harm and psychological damage. Breach of duty, causation and quantum (including life expectancy for an unrelated condition) remained in dispute.

The claim settled for a high six-figure sum at an all-day mediation that assumed a favourable result for the Claimant on all issues.
