Teenager makes successful compensation claim

A teenager whose father died during a routine operation to remove his tonsils has been awarded a five-figure sum after making a compensation claim.

The young man who was just 19 months old when his father died contacted personal injury solicitors and made a compensation claim against Radcliff Infirmary in Oxford for the fatal operation that took place in 1994.

The surgeon who carried out the operation admitted liability for the man's death, which was caused by extensive bleeding following the 20-minute operation.

The teenager's mother commented on the medical negligence claim and said, "No amount of money will ever change what happened to my husband and [my son] will never have the chance to know his father. This has been a long time coming, but I always strongly felt that this shouldn't have been allowed to happen.

"The money for [my son] will hopefully provide him with some security for his future."

The amount of damages awarded for the teenager's compensation claim has not been disclosed.
