6 million compensation for boy from the Black Country
An 11 year old boy has been awarded 6 million pounds in compensation, after mistakes by staff at New Cross hospital in Wolverhampton left him with brain damage.
Doctors failed to act when Joseph O'Reggio's heart rate changed during his birth on the 14th of April 2001. Midwives failed to recognise he was being starved of oxygen and he was left completely reliant on a wheelchair, unable to speak and feed himself and needing round the clock care.
His parents, Rachel and Julian last year won a legal battle to get Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust to accept that they were liable for the majority of Joe's injuries and that he should have been delivered earlier.
That admission paved the way for the £6 million pound care package which has been approved by the Royal Courts of Justice in London. The money will be used to fund the care costs for the rest of his life.
An immediate lump some will enable to the family to move to a new home, specially adapted to his needs, with room for his wheelchair to move and room for overnight carers.
Mum Rachel who also has two daughters said "I can't describe how it feels, knowing we finally have justice for Joe. It's a mixture of huge relief and happiness that he will now always have access t the treatment he deserves and be cared fort the rest of his life."
