$900,000 Settlement For Improper Gallbladder Procedure
No items found.
We recovered a settlement for a young woman who sustained immense pain and suffering as a result of an improper cholecystectomy. The doctors failed to obtain the "critical view" of safety. The surgeon's resultant confusion regarding the anatomy caused him to transect the common bile duct and the hepatic artery, which resulted in the injuries sued for, including multiple small bowel abscesses, a hepaticojejunostomy to attach the jejunum to the hepatic duct to address the biliary system transections, liver damage which required a hepatic lobectomy, and other sequelae. She recovered $900,000.
