A seven-year-old girl has won up to £7 million compensation in a medical negligence claim. Ella Bryant-Brand, from Billingshurst, West Sussex, sustained brain damage when the umbilical cord became wrapped around her neck at birth and the problem was not solved fast enough. She suffers from cerebral palsy, limited speech and limited movement in her limbs, meaning she is not able to walk.
Ella has been awarded between £5 million and £7 million compensation from the NHS Litigation Authority as a result of her birth injury at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton. The successful birth injury claim is one of the largest ever compensation payouts by the NHS. Ella’s mother, Kim Bryant, intends to use the compensation to pay for the equipment and round-the-clock care needed to take care of Ella for the rest of her life.
