Surgical Mistake Caused a Young Girl to Lose Both Kidneys
Our client was a young girl who had to have a kidney removed due to the presence of a tumor. During the surgery, the surgeon inadvertently cut off the blood flow to the remaining healthy kidney and it, too, was lost. Following a year of dialysis (along with chemotherapy for the tumor), the minor underwent a kidney transplant. Our client can expect to require four to five more transplants over her lifetime and increased risks for a host of complications related to the medications she will take for the rest of her life.
Part of this recovery was used to purchase a structured settlement that will result in payout in excess of $13,000,000.
