£120,00 for negligent keyhole surgery at Gatwick Park Hospital

Mark Bowman recovered compensation for Mandy in a keyhole surgery negligence claim against Gatwick Park Hospital. Mandy became depressed following the damage caused during the surgery which required a number of repair procedures and long periods in hospital.

Mandy underwent a laparoscopic cholecystectomy at the Gatwick Park Hospital.

Shortly after discharge, Mandy developed severe upper abdominal pain and was re-admitted to hospital.

Following investigations, burn damage to the common hepatic duct was identified, which had resulted in a bile leak.

Mandy underwent a number of repair procedures, necessitating long periods of in-hospital care. She became depressed and experienced a change in personality.

A settlement was agreed in the sum of £120,198, plus costs.
