Bile Duct Injury Claims Lawyers Liverpool & London
The clinical and medical negligence team at Gregory Abrams Davidson Solicitors specialise in claims for compensation arising as a result of bile duct injuries.
Gall bladder removal is one of the most common operations performed at hospitals in England and Wales. A frequently used method for removing a gall bladder involves a keyhole procedure known as a laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
Damage to the bile duct can occur not only during gall bladder surgery for example to remove gall stones but also during other surgery to the abdomen or liver.
Whilst most gall bladder operations are free from any complications, occasionally, damage can be caused to the bile duct as a result of a cut, burn or pinch.
Bile duct injuries can lead to symptoms that can be extremely painful or even fatal if not treated promptly and effectively.
