Negligent Bladder Surgery

Tommy Hastings handled this medical malpractice case. The Plaintiff underwent a cystoscopy for a bladder obstruction. During the procedure, the urologist negligently resected the ureters causing scarring and blockage. Following the procedure, the Plaintiff returned to his family physician complaining of uncontrollable blood pressure. Blood tests showed that the kidney function was twice the normal reading. However, the family physician failed to recognize that the Plaintiff was suffering from kidney failure. The Plaintiff had his right kidney removed as a result. Suit was brought against the urologist and family physician. The case settled shortly before trial for a confidential amount.
