Bile Duct Injuries From Gallbladder Surgery May Be Medical Malpractice
Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers handle cases involving bile duct injuries that occur during laparascopic gallbladder surgery. Biliary injury is a major problem in the laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery procedure. The injuries and damages caused by this error are often significant, ranging from the need for multiple additional surgeries to even death if the injury is not promptly diagnosed.
Botched gallbladder surgeries are a leading cause of malpractice claims and are more likely to be settled in favor of plantiffs. On average, half of all surgeons performing these operations will mistakenly cut the bile duct at least once in their career. The bile duct is cut so often because surgeons mistake it for the nearby cystic duct which must be severed to remove the gallbladder. When the bile duct is cut, bile leaks into the abdomin causing an infection. Repairing the bile duct requires major reconstructive surgery and an extended hospital stay.
If you are the victim of medical malpractice due to an untreated bowel perforation or ruptured bowel, you should contact our office immediately to discuss your case.
