Lisa Arrowood Obtains $500,000 in Medical Malpractice Case



Lisa Arrowood recently reached a pre-suit settlement for their client, a young man who was injured during surgery to remove his gallbladder.  During the laparoscopic cholecystectomy, the operating surgeon completely transected the young man’s common hepatic duct.  This injury required substantial medical intervention. During a subsequent operation, the surgical team removed sixteen surgical clips that had been left inside the young man at the area of the transection. The young man suffered ongoing pain and was at risk for future complications.  The case was settled for $500,000 in advance of filing suit.
