Client stories & notable cases

Mrs L v Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust

The claimant suffered severe psychiatric injury after a failure by the trust’s anaesthetist to follow infection control procedures; the anaesthetist failed to change his gloves after a procedure on another patient. Liability was admitted. The claimant had to undergo tests to rule out HIV and was unable to return to her job as a business development manager.

Damages recovered: £487,000

Miss N v East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust (issued in the High Court)

A claim arising out of negligent elbow surgery leading to chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS).

Damages recovered: £125,000

Mrs O (on behalf of Mr O deceased) v East Kent University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (issued in the High Court)

A claim on behalf of a widow whose 77 year old husband died after being misdiagnosed with rectal cancer. Jennifer represented the family at the Inquest where the Coroner concluded that further deeper biopsies could have revealed that a rectal mass was not cancerous. The deceased underwent chemo-radiotherapy and surgery and died.

Damages recovered £65,000

Mr H (on behalf of Mrs H deceased) v Medway NHS Foundation Trust

The deceased was diagnosed with a recurrence of bowel cancer and underwent complicated bowel resection surgery. She died in the days after surgery due to vomiting which caused aspiration and cardiac arrest. Jennifer represented the husband of the deceased at the 2 day Inquest which concluded that the deceased had suffered abdominal sepsis and that a failure to keep her nil by mouth (and in fact to allow her to intake some 2.5 litres of fluid on the day she died) had led to the aspiration. Expert evidence obtained after the Inquest concluded that the deceased would have had a very limited life expectancy in any event.

Damages recovered £30,000

Mrs T v Dartford & Gravesham NHS Trust (issued)

This claim involved a delay in carrying out caesarean section leading to a breech delivery. Mother was told that her baby had died and was asked to give her permission to stop resuscitation attempts. The baby was then noted to be breathing and was taken for cooling. The mother suffered PTSD.

Damages recovered: £27,000

Mrs I v NHS Commissioning Board (issued)

The claimant underwent surgery to repair an epigastric hernia. The surgeon also advised that he could perform surgery to reduce lax abdominal skin which was described as a "therapeutic abdominoplasty". The surgeon failed to repair the hernia and left the claimant with permanent abdominal scarring.

Damages recovered: £22,500

Mr Y v Countrywide Estates Limited

The claimant suffered an Achilles tendon injury as well as psychiatric injury as a result of the failure of the defendant to replace a tree in a metal grid outside his home.

Damages recovered: £89,000

Mr P v Prospect Commercial Limited

The claimant suffered a spinal fracture as a result of a road traffic accident. He spent a number of months in a back brace but made a good recovery. He had some ongoing back pain which affected his job as a refuse collector.

Damages recovered: £59,000

I am so grateful to TS&P for all their work and help with my mother's case; it was a very complicated and time-consuming case.

Client

I cannot thank Jenny and her team enough and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend TS&P, Debbie, Jenny and Patricia highly enough. Many thanks again for your professional conduct throughout.

Client

I would like to thank Jenny and her team for all their hard work and efforts during what has been a very traumatic 3 years.  Throughout this period, Jenny has been on hand with reassurance and advice.  At the same time, she assembled an excellent team of experts, which enabled me to reach a successful conclusion.

Client

We had only just lost John when we started meetings with the solicitors. It was a time of utter despair, and the expertise, reassurance, and commitment from Jenny gave us hope and strength.
