Loss of kidney due to negligent gynae treatment

19 June 2015

Our client unfortunately had to undergo a nephrectomy following gynae and urology treatment at a Belfast hospital which failed to recognise that fluid was not properly draining to her kidney. Her claim for compensation against the hospital was dealt with by our Mr. Deazley.

At HHD solicitors we obtained all our client's medical notes and records, x-rays and scans and were able to identify eminent independent experts outside Northern Ireland who reviewed the treatment provided. We also listened to our client and instructed a Consultant Psychiatrist to report on the extra mental anguish cause by the hospital's negligence.

Her claim included compensation for the unnecessary surgical procedures, pain and suffering, loss of earnings and the psychiatric reaction that she suffered as a result of her treatment. Our client was awarded £75,000 compensation.

Should you have any queries regarding treatment of gynae procedures or any other medical issue, please contact our experienced medical team at HHD, damiandeazley@hhdsolicitors.com or Fiona Sterritt fionasterritt@hhdsolicitors.com
