After 12-years Nathan Humphries has been awarded 8 million pounds as compensation by North Staffordshire Hospital, as the midwives at the hospital failed to react to his mother's raised blood
pressure which left him with cerebral palsy and epilepsy.
Due to the high blood pressure his
mother suffered an eclamptic fit which led to oxygen deficiency for Nathan in
the womb. His parents have said that they would always blame the hospital for
this gross blunder which has left their child in a wheelchair.
This is one of the highest-ever
compensation awards approved by the High Court, in Manchester. This compensation
means a lot for the family as now Nathan can be cared for in the way he needs
to for the rest of his life. But still his parents feel that no amount of money
can turn back the clock and give Nathan the normal life that he would otherwise
have had. Though the settlement will provide financial security for Nathan and peace
of mind for his parents that their child will have the proper care he needs for
the rest of his life.
