Justin Goodman, Medical Negligence Solicitor and Partner at Pardoes Solicitors has recovered one million pounds on behalf of a teenager who suffered moderate brain damages as a result of a General Practitioners failure over a 36 hour period to recognise that his unusual, intense, sudden onset headaches could have a more sinister cause than just migraines. He was eventually admitted into hospital and they also failed to adequately investigate his headaches by way of a CT scan. He became very unwell and eventually fitted and showed early signs of coning. He was transferred to a specialist hospital where an appropriate diagnosis of hydrocephalus caused by a colloid cyst of the third ventricle of his brain was made and he underwent emergency surgery. The client is now rebuilding his life.
