Gastro-intestinal negligence claims
In this area there are broadly two main potential clinical negligence claims:
- A claim could be made either for a failure by a medical professional in diagnosing a gastrointestinal condition which leads to some injury that could have been avoided.
- A claim could also be made for positive action made by a medical professional that causes injury to a patient, if this injury could have been avoided if the procedure had been carried out competently.
Failure to diagnose a gastrointestinal condition: This category of claims covers both a failure to carry out appropriate tests to diagnose the gastrointestinal condition suffered by the patient as well as a failure to diagnose a gastrointestinal condition faced with test results that would indicate the condition in question.
Positive action by medical professional that injures the patient where injury could have been avoided if the procedure had been carried out competently: This category of cases includes a medical professional who carries out the complete wrong procedure in the face of a certain set of circumstances as well as a medical professional who, having selected the correct procedure to carry out, performs the procedure below the standard expected and causes injury.
