Inadequate antibiotic treatment – £247,830

Mr Robinson had an abscess drained at hospital and was discharged without being provided with antibiotics. After discharge he began to suffer with numbness in his feet and legs, a spinal lesion was diagnosed and he required surgery. Despite surgery he suffered ongoing complications.

We pursued a claim for medical compensation for Mr Robinson on the basis that he should have been given antibiotics after the original abscess had been drained in order to ensure that the infection had been completely eliminated.
