Pryers successfully brought a medical negligence claim for Miss R after she suffered damage to her ureter during hysterectomy surgery.

Mrs R suffered from uterine fibroids and was recommended to undergo a total abdominal hysterectomy with removal of both fallopian tubes (bilateral salpingectomy).

She felt unwell post operatively and was readmitted to the Hospital with abdominal pain and fever.

Investigations revealed that Miss R’s left ureter had been damaged in the course of the surgery. She was told that she would require a nephrostomy, a surgical procedure which involved implanting a plastic tube to drain urine from her left kidney into a collecting bag outside her body.

Miss R lived with nephrostomy in place for almost four months until its removal. These injuries caused her to suffer from depression.

Pryers worked with an independent expert Consultant Urogynaecologist to prove that the operating surgeon had been negligent. It was confirmed that mistakes had been made in the course of the surgery and that this had likely caused Miss R’s injury.

After the case was put to the Hospital Trust, Pryers obtained admissions of negligence from the Hospital.

With considerable experience in negotiating settlements of this nature, Pryers were able to agree an out of court settlement of £26,500. Miss R was pleased to accept this to see a conclusion to a very difficult time of her life and to avoid the need for a court Trial.
