Sonia's case experience

  • Sonia secured £150,000 stroke misdiagnosis compensation for her client who suffered a small stroke, the symptoms of which were misdiagnosed by medical staff as an eye problem. She went on to suffer a second stroke with life-changing effects.
  • Sonia’s young client suffered severe infections for a period of eight months following a hip surgery as a result of inadequate prophylactic antibiotics and repeated failures to diagnose signs of infection. Liability was partially admitted and the claim was settled for £30,000.
