Compensation for Ambulance Delay leading to brain damage

Posted in: Head and Brain Injuries Medical Negligence 

A woman who had to wait over an hour and a half for an ambulance after she collapsed in north London has been awarded nearly £5million in compensation.

The BBC reports that the 36-year-old genetic scientist now needs 24-hour care having sustained brain damage as a result of the emergency medical team taking more than 100 minutes to get to her. The delay was caused by her address being flagged as high risk. This meant that although the ambulance crew were only a short distance away, they had to wait for a police escort before entering her home.

Before the accident, the scientist worked at King’s College London, but her brain injury means she will never be able to work again. The London Ambulance has apologised and been ordered to pay £1.4 million, as well as annual payments for the rest of her life.
