The Boyes Turner medical negligence group recovered £75,000 in compensation for a 68 year old man following the death of his wife.

The case related to failures on the part of an NHS trust to appropriately monitor and treat the woman’s declining kidney function over an eight month period, which ultimately led to the woman’s death at age 69 from renal failure.

A general physician with a specialist knowledge of kidneys was instructed on the case. The expert was supportive of the fact that, had the declining kidney function been picked up upon, then the woman would have survived. However, he was of the view that the woman would have required renal replacement therapy/transplantation in any event.

The NHS trust admitted liability following receipt of a pre-proceedings letter of claim. Following the NHS trust admission a settlement of £75,000 was negotiated by the group. There was no cost to the client in bringing the claim which was brought on a No Win No Fee basis.
