Mrs B receives an early admission of liability following injury of the bile duct during routine gallstone surgery.

Mrs B receives an early admission of liability following injury of the bile duct during routine gallstone surgery.

A panel member solicitor acted for Mrs B in relation to a negligent laparoscopic cholecystectomy to remove a large gallstone, carried out at St Anthony’s Private Hospital.

The procedure should have been relatively routine but during the course of the surgery the Defendant wrongly removed the common hepatic duct, divided the right and left hepatic duct and caused extensive damage to the bile duct. Despite the obvious errors in the surgery, Mrs B was discharged without any further investigation and subsequently had to undergo extensive reconstructive surgery and experienced a prolonged period of recovery.

An early admission of breach of duty was received from St Anthony’s Hospital and after detailed investigations into causation and quantum, and negotiations with the Defendant’s representatives, a panel member solicitor was able to secure a settlement of £155,000 for Mrs B and counselling costs to help Mrs B come to terms with her trauma.
