Our clinical negligence solicitors at Chadwick Lawrence specialise in all types of medical negligence compensation claims, including those involving negligence in the treatment of conditions of the gastrointestinal tract and other gastroenterology injuries.
Gastroenterology is concerned with disorders and diseases of the digestive system, including the liver, stomach, bowel and other organs of the digestive tract. Disorders include cancers of the oesophagus, stomach, liver, or bowel including colorectal cancer, Crohn’s disease, appendicitis, pancreatitis, diverticular disease, ulcerative colitis, polyps, irritable bowel syndrome, liver disease, gallstones, gallbladder disease, strictures, blockages or twisting of the bowel. Medical negligence claims involve injuries caused by negligent surgery, negligent treatment during endoscopy, ERCP, sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy procedures, delay in diagnosis and treatment of conditions, side effects following the prescription of medication for abdominal problems and negligent misdiagnosis of bowel disease.
Medical negligence in the management of these conditions can result in progression of diseases and cancer, more extensive treatment or surgery being required, poorer prognosis, patients being unnecessarily left with permanent stomas, damage to other organs, perforations, severe infections, peritonitis and in the worst cases death.
If you or someone you know may have sustained an injury as a result of medical or surgical negligence in the management of a gastroenterological condition, please contact our specialist no win no fee medical negligence lawyers.
