london - An 18-year-old woman from the United Kingdom who suffered brain damage as a baby due to a medical mistake received a compensation of 20 million pounds (22 million euros). As a five-month-old infant, she was given too little oxygen during an operation on her esophagus.
According to The Guardian, it is the highest compensation so far awarded to a victim of a medical failure by the UK Health Service NHS (National Health Service). 'My daughter has been snatched from me. She went from a healthy baby to a seriously handicapped child ', the mother of the girl reacted.
