Doctor Negligently Occludes Client’s Common Bile Duct

Surgical Error Leads to Medical Malpractice Settlement


Our client developed gallbladder disease and underwent a procedure to remove his gallbladder. After being discharged home, our client developed a jaundiced appearance and he felt generally ill.

Our client went to the emergency room, where doctors determined the doctor who had performed the gallbladder procedure had placed surgical clips in such a manner as to occlude his common bile duct – a tube necessary for digestion that carries bile. Our client was forced to undergo an open operation to surgically reconstruct his biliary tree as a result of the operating doctor’s negligence. Rosen Louik & Perry settled this case for several hundred thousand dollars.
