Thompsons fought the case of Holly Thornton who was starved of oxygen during delivery causing cerebral palsy. The hospital denied liability throughout but following a settlement conference shortly before trial, settled the claim. The clinical negligence award was split between a lump sum released immediately to fund the purchase of a specially adapted bungalow and the balance to be invested to produce an annual periodical payment commencing on Holly’s 18th birthday for care, special therapies and special needs equipment.
