Bile duct severed during keyhole surgery – £250,000

Mrs Alexander underwent keyhole surgery to remove her gall bladder, after discharge she felt very unwell and suffered from a swollen stomach, high temperature and jaundice. She was re-admitted to hospital where it was discovered that her bile duct had been severed. Mrs Alexander underwent surgery to reconstruct the duct but suffered from continued complications.

We pursued a claim on Mrs Alexander’s behalf because the bile duct should not have been damaged during the original operation.
