JM v Salisbury NHS Trust (2012)

The client suffered a left knee injury whilst playing football. Upon attending hospital an MRI scan of his left knee was incorrectly reported on as showing no abnormality when in fact he was later found to have suffered an anterior cruciate ligament tear. Because of the late diagnosis he was given incorrect treatment and suffered a fall in which he suffered a tear of the medial meniscus. The Client was immobilised for a year longer than he should have been due to the tear of the medial meniscus. Liability was accepted and an award agreed at £100,000.00.
