Brain damaged mother loses fight for personal injury compensation

A mother of five has lost her bid to win personal injury compensation from a doctor who failed to spot that she was suffering from a debilitating brain condition.

46-year-old Maria Holt, from Ashton-under-Lyne, consulted personal injury solicitors and sued Dr Anthony Edge, claiming he was responsible for allowing her to suffer a haemorrhage that left her disabled and requiring the use of a wheelchair.

Dr Edge denied he was to blame for Mrs Holt's brain damage and judges at London's High Court agreed, throwing out the compensation claim.

Angry at being refused personal injury compensation, Mrs Hope's husband told reporters, "We will not let this rest, it is not about money."
