Partners Rich O’Connor and Sandy Roussas obtained a defense verdict in Bridgeport Superior Court
SOC Partners, Rich O’Connor and Sandy Roussas, obtained a defense verdict in Bridgeport Superior Court. SOC’s first defense verdict of 2019. Plaintiff alleged that the defendant surgeon failed to obtain the critical view of safety during a laparoscopic cholecystectomy and cut the right hepatic duct causing, among other things, a bile leak, multiple subsequent procedures and ongoing pain. The defense argued that the surgeon complied with the standard of care in identifying the relevant anatomy during the procedure and that the injury occurred because of the presence of an aberrant duct.
