New York, NY (PRWEB) October 29, 2009
The New York personal injury law firm of Schwartzapfel Truhowsky Marcus P.C. has launched a new Web site specifically designed for victims of medical malpractice during gallbladder surgery.
The new Web site is located at gallbladder-removal.com.
"The bottom line is that most injuries sustained during gallbladder surgery are preventable," said Steven J. Schwartzapfel, founding partner of Schwartzapfel Truhowsky Marcus P.C. "We have a deep understanding of what goes wrong during these surgeries. If you have suffered one of two common injuries during your surgery, there's a good chance you are a victim of malpractice."
The firm's new Web site provides information about how these injuries occur and what patients can do to receive compensation for the medical expenses related to surgical errors. Among the topics covered:
- A Step-by-Step Look at Gallbladder Surgery - The new Web site explains gallbladder removal procedure, also called laparoscopic cholecystectomy, so that patients can understand what occurs during a routine procedure.
- What Went Wrong - Two types of injuries are common in gallbladder removal surgeries. The new Web site explains why these injuries are typically caused by doctors' mistakes.
- Your Injury - Most patients injured during gallbladder removal have an injury to their common bile duct. The new Web site provides information about the function and purpose of the bile duct and the complications that arise when it is injured.
- What Happens Now - The Web site provides essential information about living with an injured bile duct and the legal rights of patients harmed by medical malpractice, including the right to seek money for medical bills and other expenses.
