Medical negligence in Scotland leaves patient with permanent nerve damage
Digby Brown’s medical negligence solicitors helped a woman in Glasgow, Scotland, after hospital negligence meant she suffered from permanent nerve damage to her right arm.
Medical negligence by staff at hospital in Scotland
Our client suffers from type 1 diabetes and was admitted to hospital after suffering from flu like symptoms and starting to hyperventilate.
At hospital she was given an insulin infusion to help. However, there were issues with inserting the tube to give the insulin, which caused our client pain and later caused the permanent nerve damage.
There was a failure on the part of the treating medical and nursing staff at the hospital to appreciate the urgency of the symptoms our client symptoms was displaying and properly monitor her right arm and hand
Had they intervened earlier she would not have sustained permanent damage to her right arm and hand.
Impact of medical negligence on client
Our client has permanent sensory and motor impairment of her right arm and hand.
She is now prone to tingling sensations in her fingers, spasms and attacks of coldness as well as permanent decreased grip strength in her dominant right hand.
Our client now can no longer write or use a keyboard as she did before the medical negligence.
Due to the medical negligence she suffered, she is currently unfit for work which means she has lost, and will continue to lose, wages. She is at a disadvantage on the labour market going forward as a result of her injuries.
