Surgery Errors

Analysis of a Surgery Error Case Tried by Mr. Russo

A 50-year-old married woman is experiencing severe abdominal pain, and her doctor decides there is a problem with her gallbladder. He recommends laparoscopic surgery to remove the organ and help her recover quicker.

She is supposed to have a routine gallbladder operation at an outpatient center; however, the doctor cuts the wrong body part during the procedure. This causes her to become severely ill, forcing her to undergo a bigger corrective operation.

The injury occurred because the doctor failed to properly identify her anatomy. He, through his insurance company, refused to settle the case. The jury ruled in favor of the woman, and she was awarded $471,000.
