Our client (aged 45) underwent what should have been a routine hysterectomy at her local hospital in Oxfordshire. Unfortunately, her bowel was damaged by the Surgeon and this left her with a permanent colostomy which, not surprisingly, has had a huge impact on her life. She was not working at the time and had no plans to return to work.

Proceedings had to be issued in this case and a settlement was achieved for our client shortly before trial, as often happens in hospital negligence cases.

S. J. Edney solicitors obtained £175,000 for this client in 2007
