£2million damages for couple following ‘Wrongful Birth’ claim.
Mr and Mrs H received damages of £2,000,000, after their son was born with spina bifida. Mrs H had undergone a foetal anomaly scan at 20 weeks during which the neural tube defect was not identified. Whilst liability was admitted, there were significant disputes in relation to the quantification of the claim. Their son now requires constant care and attention, and will continue to for the rest of his life.
