Prescription Error Success Stories
Naomi had an emergency Caesarean Section because of pre-eclampsia. Following delivery she was inadvertently administered suxamethonium, a paralysing agent used in anaesthesia, instead of syntometrine, a drug used to cause the uterus to contract. She was unable to speak or move and lapsed into unconsciousness while trying desperately to breathe.
Seventy-nine-year-old 'Grace' was the victim of a hospital drug error that left her with a distressing and painful skin condition and ultimately led to her death. Sophie Fox, a specialist medical negligence solicitor at JMW, supported Grace's grieving family with the medical negligence case and was successful in obtaining £40,000 in compensation.
