D’Souza v West Middlesex University Hospitals NHS Trust
1 September 2016
High Court claim that settled for a six-figure sum. The (retired) claimant suffered a damaged popliteal artery during knee surgery that resulted in permanently reduced mobility and independence. Breach of duty and causation were both in dispute. The case settled on the basis that the claimant would, absent negligent surgery, have maintained his independence for the foreseeable future without the need for permanent assistance.
