In December 2008, the team acted on behalf of a couple who attended a Consultant Gynaecologist for a fertility treatment. The Gynaecologist carried out a laparoscopy on the wife which was contraindicated due to a previous failed laparoscopy and her elevated body mass index. Following the laparoscopy, she developed necrotizing fascilitis (commonly referred to as "the flesh eating bug"). She became critically unwell as a result of the infection and lost most of her abdominal wall muscles. She suffered severe pain and as a result of her injuries, she is now unable to have children. Her husband has also lost the ability to have a natural child with his wife. The team settled this case for a substantial sum in December 2008.
