Mother Receives A Substantial Settlement After The Death Of Her Baby
A woman who was accused of being a "malingerer" during an inquest into her baby's death has been awarded hundreds of thousands of pounds in compensation.
In 2002, Kerry Jones from Crediton was taken to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital when she was three weeks overdue with her daughter, Bron. She persistently asked staff for a Caesarean section to deliver the baby. Staff ignored her pleas and allowed her daughter to be born naturally.
During the birth the baby suffered a shortage of oxygen to the brain causing severe brain damage. The baby died shortly afterward when life support was withdrawn after it became clear that she would not recover.
At the inquest into Bron's death, Miss Jones was blamed for her death, with midwives claiming that Miss Jones' birth attendant undermined them.
In 2005, the hospital admitted liability for not carrying out Caesarean and yet pulled out of a settlement hearing. The case then proceeded to the High Court. Miss Jones' solicitor claimed that the case was "one of the worst cases of injustice" she had seen during a long career in clinical negligence.
Miss Jones had suffered severe psychological trauma following the death of her daughter, compounded by the blame that had been apportioned to her by the hospital.
