Laparoscopic Surgery Accidents

Texas Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Laparoscopic surgery is used to avoid more invasive procedures that require opening the abdominal area, cutting into muscle, or removing certain organs. While each kind of laparoscopic surgery is unique, the basic principle involves the use of cable-like instruments to enter into targeted areas and remove or clear tissue. While there are significant advantages associated with laparoscopic surgery, there are also risks that are often a function of surgical error, infection, and general negligence. At Hampton & King, we represent people who suffer significant injuries and medical complications due to laparoscopic surgery accidents. We consult medical experts who identify mistakes that result in serious injuries while developing compelling cases for our client.

Don't assume medical complications after laparoscopic surgery are the result of bad luck or "the healing process." To discuss your case and how we can help you, contact laparoscopic surgery accident lawyer Hartley Hampton today to schedule a free consultation.

Injuries associated with Laparoscopic Surgery Accidents

The medical malpractice law office of Hartley Hampton represents clients in the following kinds of laparoscopic accident injury cases:

  • Cholecystectomy and gall bladder injury
  • Liver damage involving hepatic duct procedures
  • Kidney injuries
  • Bile duct injuries
  • Death due to sepsis or infection

Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy - Negligence and Bile Duct Injuries

In order to successfully remove bile duct cysts, a surgeon must navigate through the "biliary tree" - the placement of bile ducts in and around the gallbladder, pancreas, and liver. Most laparoscopic cholecystectomy injuries occur when a surgeon cuts the common duct instead of the cystic duct. Doing so can result in complications that require delicate reconstructive surgery or even a liver transplant. In some cases, a patient's condition worsens, leading to death.

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy mistakes cause untold suffering and pain for patients. And, as indicated by numerous articles published in established medical journals, a botched laparoscopic cholecystectomy is sometimes attributable to surgeon error.
