3.2 Million Compo for hospital victim

#1
Mark Thomas was today awarded £3.2 Million compo for a hospital's negligence when he was misdiagnosed as being free from Meningitis from which he was really suffering.

Mr Thomas who has never worked, and never will, said from the pub where he was celebrating with his parents " Cheers".

The family's solicitor, said afterwards: "It is always rewarding to obtain an award of damages for a child , which will go some way towards helping him lead the fullest possible active life


Yes this young lad deserves compensation for the hospital's negligence and i sincerely hope he will be able to lead the fullest life possible .

One thing that i think our government should change is the fact you have to bring a case with in three years for medical negligence ,This should be changed and their should be no time limit .

Because their are also a lot of people within the u.k. who have suffered medical negligence who have received no compensation because of the time limit .

Will this money come from insurance or the PCT's budget?
I belive that it comes out of central NHS funds and that the NHS Litigation Authority deals with any negligence complaints. Most are concluded out of court with only around 4% actually ending in court. The rise in compensation has gone up from around £600m 3 years ago to around £800m in the last financial year.
