Firm Secures Settlement for Bungled Kidney Stone Surgery
Settlement: $2.5 Million
A mother of two who died during a routine surgery for kidney stone removal had $2.5 million awarded to her estate after the doctors responsible was found to be negligent. The woman, who was only 25 years old when she died, had sought medical attention for her kidneys. It was argued that not only was the medical treatment administered to the woman before, during and after surgery below the acceptable standard of care, but that the woman was not properly informed of the risks associated with surgery and would not have agreed to it had she been fully informed. During surgery, the woman suffered kidney failure, loss of blood requiring blood transfusions, cardiorespiratory arrest, hypoxia, internal organ failure and other complications, which culminated in her death three days later.
