Our client consulted his GP complaining of pain and discomfort in his leg. His GP attributed his complaint to a muscular-skeletal injury. Sadly, he didn’t suspect that he had an infection and, as there was a delay in our client being referred to hospital, the infection spread throughout his leg and he required additional surgery and his mobility was more impaired than it should have been.
Proceedings had to be issued for the doctors negligence and this case settled shortly before Trial.
