Mrs H underwent hip replacement surgery in October 2011. Following the surgery, she was placed in flowtron boots. The purpose of flowtron boots after surgery is to prevent deep vein thrombosis.

Unfortunately because of poor application and monitoring of the flowtron boot, she developed a blister on the anterior aspect of the calf of her left leg sustaining significant tissue damage which took over six months to heal and has left her with an unsightly 1.5 inch scar almost three years on.

Annabelle Eyre, solicitor in our Clinical Negligence team,  was instructed by the Claimant at the end of October 2013. Following receipt of the letter of claim and brief negotiations, Annabelle achieved a settlement of £2,500 for her client in June 2014.
