Failure to provide DVT prophylaxis – £10,000

Mr Hill was advised that he needed surgery after injuring his back. However, due to an administrative error, he remained in hospital waiting for the operation for two weeks, during which time he developed DVT.

We pursued a claim for Mr Hill because he was at risk of developing DVT due to his prolonged period of immobility and should have received DVT prophylaxis.
