A 25-year old, who had a history of abdominal pain due to gallstones, was advised by a physician to electively remove her gallbladder. The surgery was performed incorrectly, resulting in a vein injury which necessitated a liver transplant. The operating physician used a single port procedure and not the required three port procedure. Post-operation, a bile leak was discovered due to the vein injury and the plaintiff’s liver was found to be irreparably damaged, ultimately leading to a liver transplant. Jeff Milman with Hodes Milman represented the plaintiff, settling with the physician in the amount of $999,900; the case against the hospital is ongoing.
