Julie Crossley, a medical injury specialist at Ashtons Legal, has obtained a £75,000 settlement for Mrs B who suffered negligent urology treatment during and following pregnancy. The issues surrounded a nephrostomy tube which was inserted and then the tap left closed when she was discharged from hospital. A blockage occurred and resulted in an infection. There were then two further occasions when the tube appeared blocked but the Trust did not attempt to change it. Once Mrs B had delivered her baby there were several unsuccessful attempts to remove the tube which by now had encrusted into her kidney and caused pain and distress until a surgical procedure was eventually carried out to remove it, over 20 months after the original insertion. Mrs B has incurred some lasting side-effects including a small loss of function from one kidney, and ongoing and debilitating groin pain which has left her with physical restrictions and she is disadvantaged in the labour market and requires more assistance at home.
