Roger Murray’s Interview on HSE settlement for €3.8m for boy left paralysed after hospital treatment in Wexford

Click below to listen to Roger Murray’s, Joint Managing Parter & Head of Medical Negligence Callan Tansey Solicitors, Interview on HSE Settlement. 

The HSE has agreed a settlement of €3.8 million in the case of a 12-year-old boy who was left paralysed following treatment in Wexford General Hospital. Matthew McGrath was left without the use of arms and legs when he contracted meningitis at just 17 months old. According to RTE News, Wexford General Hospital has admitted liability to Matthew and his parents. They state that the settlement is an interim one which will cover five years of his care. Solicitor for the McGrath family, Roger Murray from Callan Tansey, spoke to Jonathan Helay on Newstalk Lunchtime about the case today. Presenter Jonathan Healy asked what Matthew discussed with the judge, Mr Murray replied: “He had a great chat in court with the judge in relation to his favourite topic which is rugby. In relation to where Matthew’s treatment went wrong, Mr Murray stated: “It was a combination of the wrong test being done at the wrong time. All of the expert evidence suggested that Matthew’s meningitis, yes it was serious… but if treated in an appropriate fashion, he would have emerged unscathed”.

In relation to the HSE investigation, he said: “The question needs to be asked, does it take 11 years for appropriate investigations to be done and conclusions drawn? Is it right, is it fair, is it just?

“Why does it need to get to this stage before the penny drops with the HSE?”

A series of alarming medical cases are in the news today; the death of a 91 year old woman with large and infected bedsores, consultants concerns for patients at Our Lady’s Hospital in Navan and the tragic case of 21 year old Louise Butler from Sixmilebridge in Country Clare.  She died from a massive brain haemorrhage at the Mid Western Regional Hospital in Limerick in 2006, a month after she was mistakenly diagnosed with a migraine. A CT scan which could have diagnosed the condition and was demanded by her family was not carried out in time and they have urg4ed all parents to stand up for their rights.

The solicitor who represented the Butler family is Roger Murray of Callan-Tansey Solicitors in Sligo and he joined Pat this morning.
