When the gallbladder is removed, special clips are used to seal the tube that connects the gallbladder to the main bile duct. Bile fluid can occasionally leak out into the abdomen after the gallbladder is removed.
Symptoms of a bile leak include tummy pain, feeling sick, a fever and a swollen tummy.
Sometimes this fluid can be drained off. Occasionally, an operation is required to drain the bile and wash out the inside of your tummy.
If you have suffered a bile duct injury, we can help you claim compensation for surgical negligence.TRY THE ONLINE ELIGIBILITY CHECKER
BILE DUCT INJURY COMPENSATION
The amount of compensation that you will be awarded will depend upon the specific circumstances of your case. This amount of compensation is calculated by looking at two distinct categories: general damages and special damages.
The pain and suffering that your injuries have caused is the main factor that is used to determine how much compensation you are owed. This will usually be determined by undergoing a medical examination, from which a report is created that outlines the length of time the injuries will take to heal as well as their severity. Our compensation calculator gives an indication of how much you might be entitled to. Your solicitor will take the different details about your illness into account when calculating how much compensation you should be awarded.
However, compensation also takes into account any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your illness, such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to return to work. If you have had to pay for treatment or travel to treatment, compensation may also be able to cover this as well. Therefore, you should keep any receipts or other documents that help to outline the extent of your financial losses, as caused by your condition.
