When John suffered because of medical negligence, he turned to Medical Accident Group’s Amrit Dhaliwal for guidance.

John had undergone an operation, developing a frozen shoulder as a result. He was advised to have further surgery, which resulted in a fracture of his proximal humerus – the ball of the shoulder’s ball and socket joint.

He was initially referred to hospital for shoulder pain; however, analysis was not carried out sufficiently to determine the root cause of his problem. It was after two surgeries when a CT scan and biopsy determined that he had renal cell cancer – the hospital had been advised that he had previously had cancer and treatment.

Amrit instructed a doctor to produce a breach of duty, causation and prognosis report on her client, covering both his condition and the failure of the hospital to diagnose the cancer before the initial operation. This report was given to the court.

Amrit and the team also instructed a consultant orthopaedic surgeon to examine and produce a medical report on John to assess the treatment he received.

It was thanks to instructing these medical experts, and their subsequent reports, that a successful claim was able to be made.

Following the case, John said: “At my age, I have never had to do this before. Amrit helped me understand what was going on, even if she had to go over it several times.”

Amrit said: “I’m pleased to have achieved this outcome for my client. It can be particularly stressful for older people when faced with medical issues like this, so I’m glad this gentleman came to us when he did.”
