Gaurang secured substantial settlement for the estate of a young boy Najeeb, aged 15, in this tragic and complex case on causation. 

Najeeb collapsed in a gym at school and the first paramedic on arrival misinterpreted the initial rhythm as non-schockable at about 10:12am.  An advanced paramedic arrived and found shockable rhythm and shocked at about 10:36am.  Najeeb sadly passed away upon arrival at hospital.  

There was detailed analysis of the percentage chances of successful resuscitation if the shock had been applied earlier.  It was matter of minutes. Gaurang worked with his solicitor, the ambulance expert and cardiologist to evaluate the records to formulate a claim which led to a settlement.
