$700,000 Verdict for Second Surgery Lawsuit in Massachusetts
2017 Medical Malpractice Verdict
Surgeon’s mistake in cutting bile duct during gallbladder removal at Good Samaritan Hospital
April 18, 2017 — Brockton Superior Court
Lubin & Meyer PC is pleased to report that attorney Adam Satin won a plaintiff's verdict in a medical malpractice case in Brockton, Massachusetts. The jury awarded $700,000 (without interest) to our client for a transected bile duct during gallbladder removal surgery, resulting in a second surgery and prolonged recovery.
The jury deliberated for approximately 4 hours. The defense argued that a transected bile duct was a risk of the procedure, especially in light of the degree of inflammation and infection found intra-operatively.
There was no settlement offer.
