Joanna Burkhart successfully recovered £7,000.00 for Ms C who pursued a claim for compensation for clinical negligence against her local NHS Trust.

Ms C attended attended hospital in December 2012 after slipping on ice. She required an operation for a fractured tibia and fibula and was discharged from the hospital five days later.

Having not been prescribed the appropriate anticoagulant medication upon being discharged, Ms C subsequently developed blood clots on both lungs. She became acutely unwell and was admitted to hospital as an emergency in January 2013. She remained in hospital for eight days, during which time she developed diarrhoea and vomiting. Upon her discharge she was required to start taking Warfarin which she continued to take until the end of July 2013. Fortunately she made a good recovery.

Ms C instructed Joanna Burkhart in January 2013. The hospital trust admitted liability for Ms C's injuries and agreed to pay Ms C the sum of £7,000.00 in full and final settlement of the claim.
