Clinical Negligence Solicitor Paul Sankey on NHS negligence: How many severe injuries per year

The NHS Litigation Authority’s figures for 2010-2011 suggest that around 400 patients received damages for catastrophic injuries - brain damage, blindness or Amputation of a limb – as a result of medical mistakes during the last financial year. The figures break down as 215 claims for brain injuries, 134 for leg or arm amputations and 56 for blindness. This does not mean they were all injured during the same year but it gives an indication of the number of severe and disabling injuries which could have been avoided by adequate care.
