Our client was diagnosed with gallbladder disease and went for surgery at Norwegian American Hospital for gallbladder removal. After complications from the surgery, the patient was transferred to a second hospital where surgery revealed that the first doctor had, in fact, removed the bile ducts. Surgical repairs were made, but our client developed necrotizing fasciitis (flesh-eating bacteria), which resulted in the removal of most of her abdominal muscles, leaving her with a gaping abdominal hole covered only by scar tissue. We sued successfully, securing $3.4 million for pain and suffering, disfigurement and loss of normal life.
