Maisha Najeeb, a 10-year-old girl whose brain was "accidentally" injected with GLUE will receive a pay-out of up to £24 million.

The 10 year old suffered catastrophic and permanent brain damage after a mix-up at Great Ormond Street Hospital in June 2010. According to the solicitor Edwina Rawson from Field Fisher Waterhouse, there were no systems in place for telling the syringes apart.

Judge Birtles approved a settlement at London's High Court that will see her receive £2.8million as a lump sum, £383,000 per year until she is 19, which will then increase to £423,000 for the rest of her life.

Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust admitted liability.

Maisha Najeeb is in a wheelchair and has lost a vast majority of her cognitive abilities; she requires round-the-clock care which the money will go towards.

Hospitals seem to be becoming more careless; with modern technology, such mix-ups should not occur, how many more lives need to be ruined?
