£200,000 settlement for client who was left almost blind due to mismanagement of her diabetes

£200,000 settlement for client who was left almost blind due to mismanagement of her diabetes.

Due to the worsening nature of our client’s diabetic eye condition (diabetic retinopathy), she required medication to prevent further progression of the disease, which was gradually impairing her vision. Unfortunately, the Diana Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby failed to provide her with the medication she needed when they should have done so. This meant that her condition was allowed to deteriorate such that she was left almost blind. The hospital made early admissions of liability, and following prolonged negotiations, we were able to secure a negotiated settlement in the sum of £200,000.
