Lester Aldridge has successfully concluded a complex clinical negligence claim and secured a six-figure settlement for a client following the defendants’ failure to monitor her medical condition and refer her for the necessary investigations and treatment.

The case concerned a client who had been attending her GP since 2004 about a renal condition. Her GPs failed to monitor her declining health and refer her for tests and treatment at the hospital sooner, resulting in her suffering from end stage renal failure requiring an emergency admission to hospital and kidney transplant. The client also suffered from both cardiac complications and psychological conditions due to the negligent treatment she received.

Through lengthy negotiations with the defendants, and with the support of expert reports on the client’s conditions, we were able to secure a six-figure settlement for the client in recognition of the pain and suffering she experienced and continues to suffer from.

The client was pleased with the outcome of the claim and thanked Lester Aldridge for achieving such a good settlement: “The experience with Lester Aldridge was excellent. Seeing this medical negligence claim succeed has been inspiring. It shows the power of perseverance and expert support in seeking justice.”

Helen Clement, Associate in the Personal Injury team, who acted for the client says: “It was evident that the defendants clearly failed to provide my client with the correct care resulting in her suffering from unnecessary pain and discomfort.  I am so happy that we were able to settle this claim for my client and allow her to move forward with her life.”
