Gallbladder Surgery Cases

The gallbladder is an organ which stores and releases bile, a type of natural acid which helps break down fats in the body. Gallstones can be formed within the gallbladder during the process of breaking down fats. Gallstones come in varying sizes, starting at a grain of rice up to a golf ball. Depending on the size of the gallstone, it can inhibit the normal flow of bile, causing much discomfort and can suppress the deconstruction of fat.

Gallbladder surgery, also known as a cholecystectomy, are routine operations which remove gallstones from an impaired gallbladder. The majority of people who start to feel pain or pressure from gallstones, no matter the size, will end up going through gall bladder surgery.

But just because these surgeries are common, does not mean they are exempted from medical malpractice cases. In fact, most instances of medical malpractice cases take place because doctors and surgeons are so used to doing the operations, that they are not paying as close attention as they should. The sheer number of gallbladder surgeries also increases the number of patients looking to receive compensation following the development of dangerous complications.

Medical malpractice can include anything a doctor or other medical care professional does which deviates from the standard timeline of care. If your medical caregiver did not do something they should have, this also falls under medical malpractice. If you are not sure if you were a victim of medical malpractice, a Cochran, Kroll, & Associates lawyer specializing in the medical field like Eileen Kroll, will examine your evidence and discern whether you have a potential case.

When gallbladder surgeries are not performed correctly, patients could be left with debilitating or even fatal injuries. Common injuries are excessive bleeding and injuries or incisions to neighboring organs. In some cases, patients complaints of intense pain fall on deaf ears, leading to weeks and months of unnecessary suffering.

These injuries are not to be taken lightly, and you absolutely should fight for damages. Settlements can range up into the hundreds of thousands, which could help cover your future medical bills, effectively reducing your monetary stresses, so you can focus on healing and getting back to normal life.
