The Clinical Negligence Team recovered £45,000 for a client after a midwife failed to examine her following a perineal tear.

The Mother had to undergo a late repair of her third/fourth degree tear and had a temporary colostomy bag put in place. Because the midwife had failed to recognise the true extent of the tear, the Claimant suffered more harm than if the tear had been repaired immediately. The Claimant also suffered from stress during this time and sexual difficulties. She had mild depression.
