Brain Injury: One families relief at end of brain injury payout fight

THE family of a woman who suffered brain damage after hospital failings have spoken of their relief after a seven-figure payout.

Sophie Collins, 22, from East Oxford, was injured in a car crash when she was 11 years old.

She was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, but it took days for doctors to realise that her bowel had been ruptured. Her brain was starved of oxygen and the initial prognosis was that she would be left blind and paraplegic.

Although Miss Collins is now studying at University in Wales, she needs four support workers and suffers from chronic fatigue, seizures and memory loss.

Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust admitted negligence and settled on Wednesday at the High Court, London, paying out an undisclosed lump sum and an annual payment for care bills.

Mother Shenda Collins, 55, said: “I am relieved. It has been a long 10 years. We are satisfied with the compensation, but it goes without saying that we would much prefer for this to have never happened. It has had a devastating effect on all our lives, but Sophie is very determined and tenacious and she has done very, very well. I am very proud of her.”
