Mediation Case Studies

Clinical Negligence GP Dispute

The Problem – Clinical negligence was alleged against a GP, after allegedly failing to diagnose a 4 year old boy correctly, leading to the medication provided having an adverse reaction resulting in the little boy dying by the time he arrived at hospital.

The Solution – Not one of the most pleasant of mediations, the young couple and the doctor were distraught, emotions were high on both sides, a clear error made by the young doctor had led to this unfortunate situation.

The doctor’s apology and explanation only went so far, the little boy could not be brought back; however the doctor could compensate the couple financially, a deal was eventually done, which allowed the parties to put this unfortunate situation behind them to an extent and to now concentrate on moving forward.

Our Approach 

  • The mediation took 1 day compared to the 14 months this clinical negligence dispute had already gone on.
  • The mediation cost each party £950.00 each compared to the thousands they had already spent on legal fees and the thousands they would have had to spend had they continued with Court action.
