How HHD solicitors helped: At HHD solicitors we obtained all our client’s medical notes and records, x-rays and scans and were able to identify eminent independent experts outside Northern Ireland who reviewed the treatment provided. We also listened to our client and instructed a Consultant Psychiatrist to report on the extra mental anguish cause by the hospital’s negligence. Her claim included compensation for the unnecessary surgical procedures, pain and suffering, loss of earnings and the psychiatric reaction that she suffered as a result of her treatment. Our client was awarded £75,000 compensation.

Our client thanked the medical negligence team for all their hard work and how the promptly her claim was processed.
