For a body part that many people in New Jersey do not fully understand, gall bladders can cause significant amounts of pain and suffering in patients who begin to experience problems with the relatively small organ. Quite often, these issues can be successfully addressed through surgical treatments, leaving patients feeling renewed and ready to move forward with their lives. Unfortunately, not all surgeons are adept at handling these cases, and instances of negligence can result in a devastating surgery gone wrong.
While virtually every surgery or procedure has a certain amount of recovery time, patients should generally begin to feel better following gall bladder surgery. It can be tempting to brush aside deteriorating conditions as just another part of recovery, but doing so can be exceptionally dangerous. Declining health following this type of surgery can be a glaring indicator that something might have gone terribly wrong.
Some of the most common gall bladder surgery complications include cut or perforated bowels. This can be caused by a careless slip of the hand or the failure to actually identify what was being cut, but in either situation, quick action should be taken to address the problem. When a gall bladder surgery is completed without repairing any injury caused to the bowel, a patient's life could be on the line.
No patient in New Jersey should have to suffer the potentially catastrophic and life-threatening complications caused by a careless surgeon. A surgery gone wrong can have a profound impact on victims' lives, and can create financial roadblocks and emotional scarring in addition to any long-lasting pain and suffering that might be experienced. We believe that injured patients have the right to just compensation for these types of injuries, and we have dedicated ourselves to guiding our clients on the best path to achieve that goal.
