    By clinicalnegligence

Kerstin Kubiak, Partner, acted for Mary, who at 28 years of age was admitted to hospital as an emergency with appendicitis. She underwent surgery to remove her appendix but the surgeons failed to remove all of the appendix, leaving the infected tip in place. Following the surgery Mary became critically ill with an abdominal infection, requiring 2 further surgical procedures and an admission to the intensive care unit. She also required removal of part of her large bowel. Mary made a slow recovery and has been left with significant scarring, restrictions to her diet, bowel problems and possible future fertility problems. The Defendants made an early admission of liability in this case and the claim was brought to a quick settlement.
