JRM (by his father and litigation friend TRM) v King's College Hospital Foundation Trust

Medical practitioner – Negligence. In the delivery of the claimant's son, JRM, the defendant NHS Trust's hospital's obstetrician had failed to identify the correct positioning of JRM prior to delivery, wrongly placed forceps on JRM and then vigorously pulled causing an acute spinal cord injury resulting in four limb paralysis. Consequently, the Queen's Bench Division held that the NHS Trust had been liable for the injuries caused to JRM.
