Experienced Colonoscopy Malpractice Lawyers – File Your Claim Here
Colon cancer is the second leading cancer in the country, and the disease is described as insidious, which means that you may not know that you have it until it is too late. To this end, it is vital that individuals over a certain age go for colonoscopies, which is a procedure where a doctor inserts a tube with a camera into the colon in order to check for anomalies such as polyps or the beginnings of a bowel disease. In order to prepare oneself for a colonoscopy, patients are asked to drink a special liquid that helps void the bowels for a successful procedure. As with any other profession, medicine has its fair share of negligent experts. Colonoscopy negligence can take on many forms, and the patient may suffer severe, life-altering complications due to said negligence. It is vital that you understand that you have rights which are protected under medical malpractice, and should negligence lead to health complications after a colonoscopy, then you have every right to sue for money damages, something we would be more than happy to help you with.
