Richard Coleman, Partner, recently acted for a client who received compensation of £236,000 for the injuries she suffered as a result of having unnecessary ankle fusion surgery.  Our client attended hospital with symptoms in her foot and ankle and the Doctor failed to diagnose that she had a ruptured posterior tibialis tendon.  Had this correct diagnosis been made she would have been treated conservatively with physiotherapy and orthotics.  Instead the Doctor advised that she have surgery to fuse her ankle, which she agreed to, but was later found to have been unnecessary.  As a result our client was left with permanent mobility problems, the need for specialist aids and equipment (including orthotics) and care needs.  Her case was settled out of Court.
