James Aldridge and Robert Dickason in successful settlement of an unusual stillbirth claim

James Aldridge and Robert Dickason (instructed by Wolferstans) recently secured £120,000 in damages for the parents of a stillborn child.

The child died as a result of inadequately managed pre-eclampsia late in pregnancy, leading to placental abruption. The settlement included compensation for the mother’s subsequent development of fibromyalgia as a result of the physical and psychiatric trauma which she went through, although the Defendant Trust did not admit causation.

The judgment of the court is available on Lawtel [R v Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (2018)].
