What is a Colonoscopy?

A colonoscopy is a procedure in which a colonoscopy is inserted anally, through the rectum, to examine the colon. During the procedure, the patient lies on a table while the doctor inserts the colonoscope, which inflates the colon with air to allow the camera at the end of the colonoscope to get a better view. The camera sends video images to a monitor to allow the doctor to conduct the examination of the lining of the colon and the rectum. The procedure is a type of exam used to identify any changes in the colon and rectum; some examples of the changes that can be identified during this exam include swollen tissue, irritated tissue, polyps, or cancer, for instance. Biopsies, or tissue samples, can also be taken during this procedure to allow for further testing.

The Risks Associated with Colonoscopies

Some of the known risks associated with colonoscopies can include perforations, bleeding, postpolypectomy syndrome, infections, allergic reactions to anesthetics, etc.

Harm Resulting from Doctor Error – Although every procedure has risks, the truth is that some of the harm suffered by patients during these procedures occurs because of the recklessness or negligence of the medical team. In fact, if the doctor performing the procedure uses too much force or uses the wrong tool, a perforation could occur. Symptoms of perforation could include sudden and severe abdominal pain, swelling/bloating in the abdomen, chills, fever, nausea, vomiting, etc.

It is also possible for the patient to fall off the table during the exam. If the patient falls with any medical instrument still in the body, internal injuries could occur. In addition, the patient could suffer head injuries, brain injuries, neck injuries, back injuries, hip injuries, broken ribs, fractures, lacerations, etc. The patient can fall off the table if the patient is not positioned correctly, is left unattended, is not properly sedated, or is placed on the wrong table, for example.

Can I Sue for Medical Malpractice?

Yes – if you sustained injuries because of the negligence of your doctor or medical team, you could sue. This is because doctors and medical team owe patients the highest duty of care. When treating patients, they must use the highest diligence and skill to ensure that they do not cause any harm. When doctors and their medical teams are reckless and patients are harmed, they can be liable and sued for medical malpractice. If you or a member of your family suffered harm because of medical negligence, please do not hesitate to take legal action to hold all negligent parties and entities accountable for the harm that you suffered.

Can I Recover Compensation?

Victims of medical malpractice could be entitled to receive compensation. Some of the compensation available for recovery is listed below:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages
  • Legal fees

How much compensation can I recover? This is a very common question, but it is a question that could be difficult to answer without a thorough case evaluation – as case value is completely based on the details surrounding the claim. In general, medical malpractice cases can be worth anywhere from $100,000 to $1,000,000 (although they can be worth more).

How Long Do I Have to Sue?

Under California law, medical malpractice claims are subject to a three year statute of limitations. This means that claimants must file their claims within three years of the injury that occurred. In addition there is a one-year discovery rule, meaning that claimants can file their claims within one year of discovering the injury. Filing to file claims on time can result in losing the right to sue entirely; therefore, it is essential that claimants take action immediately. For more information about the total length of time that you have to file your colonoscopy injury lawsuit, contact us today.
