London (PRWEB) June 18, 2010
Law firm Field Fisher Waterhouse LLP has today issued proceedings against Godstone farm on behalf of Todd and Aaron Furnell, twins exposed to E.Coli 0157 whilst on a school trip to Godstone Farm in Surrey.
This follows the publication of the Health Protection Agency's report into the outbreak which came out earlier this week.
Both of the twins, now aged three, suffered kidney failure and spent weeks in hospital after being infected with E.Coli 0157. Todd now has only 80% kidney function and Aaron's is just 64%. Aaron still uses a feeding tube for ingesting liquids and both may need kidney transplants in the future.
The twins mother Tracey Mock has instructed Jill Greenfield, personal injury partner at Field Fisher Waterhouse, to bring the claim in the High Court. The claim is for damages for personal injury and consequential loss.
Field Fisher Waterhouse represents 17 families including 25 children and one adult. The twins cases have been issued on as lead cases. The others, it is expected, will be added to the litigation at a later stage.
