Meningitis brain injury compensation claim

A Bristol hospital is being sued by a mother who claims her daughter suffered a serious brain injury when doctors failed to diagnose a rare form of meningitis.

Clare Day now needs 24-hour support as a result of the damage caused to her brain by the tuberculosis meningitis in 2010 and is not capable of working or caring for her young son.

Her mother Elaine Nikolovski is suing the trust that runs Bristol Royal Infirmary for the injury Ms Day suffered and the care she will require for the rest of her life.
