Compensation for a Pierced Colon

One of the most common sources of personal injury claim is from an error during a surgical procedure or during a medical treatment. With your body already in a delicate condition, any potential problems in this area can be very damaging to your health and can lead to even further health issues down the line. 

A pierced colon can occur as the result of negligent surgery in your abdominal area and can lead to a number of health issues if not treated appropriately. If you have suffered from a pierced colon as a result of negligence on behalf of your operating surgeon, then you could be eligible to make a personal injury claim to recoup any financial losses that you have sustained. 

Where could I suffer from a Pierced Colon?

There are a number of potential situations which could lead to a pierced colon and these include:

  • Injuries sustained during surgery in the abdominal area
  • Injuries sustained during a colonoscopy
  • General surgical negligence
  • Injuries sustained through poor treatment of IBS
  • Injuries sustained while treating colon cancer.

Who could I make a claim against?

In most situations a pierced colon will be caused through the negligence of your operating surgeon or a medical professional and in this situation, this could be the person who you consider making a compensation claim against. Your surgeon has a right and responsibility to ensure that they take all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and treat you to the best of their abilities, if you feel that they have failed to do this then you could be eligible to make a personal injury claim against them for any damages that you have sustained as a result.
