Darren from Bradford has a pre-existing diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. He began suffering from right shoulder pain in 2015. This was not improved by steroid injections and he was advised to proceed with an arthroscopy and decompression to the AC joint.

Following surgery, he continued to experience pain and plans were made to go ahead with an open resection of the AC joint a couple of months later. Following this operation, Darren struggled with a prolonged recovery and had restricted movement in his right shoulder.

Darren was concerned about the treatment he had received and instructed Pryers to investigate. Expert evidence was obtained which concluded that the AC joint had not been excised correctly during the initial operation and that during surgery, a large notch had been made into the lateral clavicle, only 5mm from the joint. These failures had been the cause of Darren’s significant ongoing pain and he consequently required further surgery and experienced a protracted recovery.

These allegations were put to the Hospital Trust, who accepted negligence in full. His case was settled for £12,000.
