Cook v Cook & Walker


Unreported – High Court QB division

Clinical negligence case in which the 10-year-old claimant suffered a brain injury and total blindness as a result of a negligent diagnosis by her GP.  The prognosis was unclear and the final quantum hearing was adjourned until after the claimant’s 16th birthday

Quantum of the claimant’s claim to cover losses up to her 16th birthday was agreed at £625,000.  The matter was adjourned until such time as the long-term prognosis of the claimant’s injuries was clearer (see [2011] EWHC 1638 per Eady J)
