The family of a man who threw himself under a tube at Turnham Green will be given 'meaningful compensation' after 'gross failures' in his care.
The widow and daughter of Neil Carter, 37, of Ewell, Surrey, who was about to become a dad for the first time, went missing from celebrity mental health clinic The Priory in Roehampton in November 2012.
At the High Court in London on Wednesday (September 21), almost four years on from Mr Carter's death The Priory Group Ltd has agreed to compensate widow Lucy, and their three-year-old daughter.
The family's barrister, Adam Korn, told London's High Court Mrs Carter was "content" to accept "the sum on offer", part of which would be set aside for her daughter.
Mr Carter had been an in-patient at the clinic as he suffered from an extreme intolerance to certain noises, a condition known as misophonia.
At the inquest in 2013, West London Coroners Court found Mr Carter took his own life jumping in front of a train.
In a narrative verdict, coroner, Dr Sean Cummings, said: "There were gross failures in his care, notably the failure to to perform basic observations followed by deliberate falsification of the record.
"These led cumulatively to a missed opportunity to search early for him and missed opportunity to offer life saving interventions".
Dr Cummings said evidence also pointed to inadequate members of staff in the ward, an inappropriate skill mix and lack of discipline as staff failed to accept the authority of a nurse in charge.
Mr Justice Dove said the settlement would provide "meaningful" assistance to the three-year-old as she grew up.
"No amount of money could every provide complete compensation, but it is the best that the law can do", he told Mrs Carter.
"I hope that this settlement will achieve some closure for Mrs Carter in this tragic case."
The judge ordered the sums of money in the settlement must not be published.
