Hospital Negligence Success for Clinical Negligence Department

In fact in 2004 she was incorrectly advised that the surgery to remove the kidney involved a risk of death in the region of 80%. Evidence has in fact shown that the actual risk was around 1%.

Unsurprisingly, Miss C did not go ahead with the surgery in light of the information that she had been given. She unfortunately suffered for several years and it was only in 2014 when she was under a different hospital Trust that she was advised that she could and should have had the surgery much earlier. The surgery was performed in December 2014 and was much more radical than it should have been.

In addition to the significant number of years’ suffering, Miss C was also left with umbilical scarring which could have been avoided, she also went on to suffer respiratory complications as a consequence of the kidney stones being left, this led to further, unnecessary surgery.

Garratts successfully obtained medical evidence to show that there had been several breaches of duty of care and were successful in securing compensation for Miss C in the sum of £100,000.
