Compensation Awarded for Severe Brain Injury

An eight-year-old girl has been awarded compensation amounting to several million pounds after she sustained a serious brain injury at birth, reports the BBC.

Ayla Ellison’s birth at Furness General Hospital in Barrow was described as “traumatic” and she was deprived of oxygen, causing catastrophic brain injury.

She is totally immobile and has to be fed through a tube. In addition, she is unable to regulate her own body temperature, leaving her at constant risk of developing hypothermia.

Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust has admitted negligence on the part of hospital staff during Ayla’s birth, and has apologised for the harm caused.

Her compensation package includes a £295,000 lump sum for pain, suffering and disability, and a further lump sum to allow a hydrotherapy pool to be installed in her home, which provides a key part of her therapy. She will also receive an index-linked amount every year for the rest of her life.
