Michael Stephenson, who's from Whitchurch, used to be an active man who's life was on the rugby pitch but six years ago a complication after a straight forward procedure on his hip meant his leg had to be amputated.
On the 20th July 2009 that Michael went into Southmead Hospital to have the routine procedure.
Five days later, the 53 year old should had been discharged but says the wound hadn't healed and there were signs of infection. It took more than a week for doctors to spot it, but it was then too late.
Over four years Michael had countless operations spending a total of two years in hospital. Until doctors finally decided to amputate his entire leg on 24th July 2013
The hospital apologised for the incident and admitted liability.
The Trust is pleased that agreement has now been reached and settlement achieved in relation to the injuries Mr Stephenson suffered.
Since liability was admitted in 2012, we have been working with Mr Stephenson’s legal team to establish his needs.
We hope that the compensation received will assist with Mr Stephenson's care and improve his quality of life.
We would like to re-iterate the apologies made in 2012 and offer Mr Stephenson and his family our best wishes for the future.
