Ellison (a child and protected party by her mother and litigation friend, Carla Leanne Ellison) v University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust

Damages – Personal injury. The claimant had suffered severe injury as a consequence of negligence on the part of the defendant during her birth. The defendant had accepted liability and a number of heads of damages were agreed. However, other damages fell to be determined by the court. The Queen's Bench Division made awards of damages in respect of general damages for pain, suffering and loss of amenity, accommodation (including the installation and upkeep of a hydrotherapy pool) and the additional costs of an annual family holiday until the claimant reached the age of 19.
