6-year-old girl receives compensation following hip injury

Clinical Negligence Article

12 November, 2009

A hospital Trust admitted liability for the hip injury caused to a six-year-old girl.

Following her birth in October 2000, a splint was applied to her left hip. One month later the splint was removed, although no follow-up appointments were arranged.

Over the next 18 months the Claimant was noted to walk abnormally, and would have a preference for crawling instead. She would occasionally cry and rub her right leg.

In April 2002 she was referred back to the hospital. An x-ray of the area showed a complete dislocation of her right hip. She required various stabilisation operations to stabilise her right hip.

She received £25,000 in compensation as a result of the hospital's negligence.
