Girl wins compensation for injuries suffered at birth
An eleven-year-old girl has been awarded around £11 million in compensation for serious injuries she suffered at birth, reports the Guardian.
Milly Evans was born in Lincoln County Hospital. Her family claim that during labour her heart beat was not adequately monitored, and therefore medical staff did not notice quickly enough that she had an abnormal heart beat and was in distress. Milly was born with cerebral palsy and cannot speak. She will be dependent on care for the rest of her life.
According to the Guardian, the United Lincolnshire Hospital NHS Trust had admitted liability for Milly's injuries, but contested the level of damages being sought. An agreement has now been reached, and Milly will be paid a lump sum of £5.9 million and receive annual payments for the rest of her life, to help meet the costs of her ongoing care requirements.
