Access Legal from Shoosmiths Announces £10.8m Payout for 11-year-old Left Disabled From Birth
Date:5/8/2012

NORTHAMPTON, England, May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Access Legal from Shoosmiths has announced that Milly Evans, an 11-year-old-girl left severely disabled from birth, was awarded £10.8 million compensation.

The national law firm Access Legal and its team of medical Negligence solicitors helped secure the amount - believed to be one of the largest ever in the UK - at a High Court hearing.

The injury to Milly happened during her birth at Lincoln County Hospital. Milly's mother, Kate Evans, was already in established labour when she was admitted to hospital at 7pm on 1 March 2001. Her baby's heart was initially monitored, but later heart rate monitoring was totally inadequate. By 10pm it was discovered that the baby had an abnormal heart rate and was suffering fetal distress.

Milly was born at 10.20pm and transferred to the neo-natal unit, where she underwent resuscitation and suffered a seizure. Mrs Evans said that if the baby's heart had been properly monitored, the midwife would have spotted the fetal distress sooner and Milly would have been delivered earlier and not suffered catastrophic injury.

After many years, United Lincolnshire Hospital NHS Trust, which runs Lincoln County Hospital, eventually admitted liability for its mistakes, but national law firm Access Legal from Shoosmiths had to fight to secure adequate compensation for Milly.

Milly suffers from cerebral palsy and requires 24-hour care. In addition to being confined to a wheelchair, she is unable to speak and is dependent on others for all daily activities. Milly's intellect has remained fairly well intact, and she communicates through an eye-gaze system.

Milly's parents will use the money to pay for past and future full-time carers, plus ongoing treatment, education, special equipment, transport, and loss of
