Doctor Injures Common Bile Duct during Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

Rosen Louik & Perry's 83-year old client went into the hospital complaining of abdominal pain after having a laparoscopic cholecystectomy, gallbladder surgery, done. Upon evaluation, the client was diagnosed with abdominal wall cellulitis and bilious drainage from her umbilicus. During the laparoscopic cholecystectomy the surgeon injured the common bile duct causing caustic bile to invade the subcutaneous tissue above the omentum. During a post-op admission, the surgeon performed a bedside procedure designed to cover up the initial error. After consulting five different experts who could not solve the mystery, the medical injury attorneys at Rosen Louik & Perry forensically determined what had been done and were able to file a malpractice claim. Following the doctor's deposition, the case settled for policy limits of $1,200,000.00.
