Negligent Treatment Of Patients With Kidney Stones Resulted In Life-threatening Conditions

  Bradley Zimmerman  |  February 6, 2020  |  

Kidney stones, also known as urolithiasis, very often cause excruciating back pain and usually require emergency room treatment. Typically, a CT scan is undertaken to confirm the presence, location, and size of the stone, and to assess the likelihood of the stone passing on its own, and/or whether surgery is required.

During the emergency room visit, a complete blood count, urinalysis, and urine culture are obtained to determine whether there are indications of an infection or decreased kidney function. Medications may be offered to reduce the pain. 

Bradley Zimmerman, Esq., the Managing Partner of The Jacob Fuchsberg Law Firm, is representing patients whose kidney stones were lodged in such a way that they prevented the urine (toxins) from clearing the body, ultimately causing diminished kidney functions and acute infections.

In the cases Mr. Zimmerman is currently litigating, the patients were never provided the option of ureteral stent placements, which would have diverted the urine, thereby preventing the ensuing infections. Unfortunately, by the time the infections were recognized, they had already morphed into urosepsis and it was too late for emergency life-saving surgeries to remove the stones. Patients must be aware of the serious nature of kidney stones and informed of their potential dangers.
