NHS set to pay lad with brain injuries a record £14million

A boy left with devastating injuries after being starved of oxygen at birth is set for a record £14.6million NHS payout.

James Robshaw, now 12, has cerebral palsy and can only communicate using his eyes.

Medics failed to pick up on “abnormal changes”  during labour at Lincoln County Hospital in 2002.

A High Court judge yesterday ruled James should receive at least £10million from the NHS. His lawyers say the total will surpass £14.6million – a birth injury record.

United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust has apologised to the family after admitting the case was “negligently mishandled”.

Jame’s mum, Suzanne Adams said: “No amount of money can ever make up for the mistakes that have condemned my amazing son to a lifetime of dependency on others.”
