If you’ve suffered a bowel injury, contact us for free advice today on making a medical negligence claim

Bowel injuries suffered as a result of surgical error are fortunately relatively rare, but when they do occur, you may have the right to make a medical negligence claim to seek compensation for the pain and suffering you have been caused.

One of the most common types of bowel injury is perforation suffered during surgery, which can lead to long-term pain, leaking and serious infection. The worst cases can be fatal. Bowel injuries can have lifelong consequences. Some patients are left needing to undergo painful and potentially distressing procedures such as colostomies, ileostomies and other stoma surgeries. Stomas require maintenance every day and lead to huge lifestyle changes.

Why should I make a medical negligence claim for a bowel injury?

Your medical negligence claim is important for a number of reasons. By claiming, you can:

  • Get compensation to help cover for lifestyle changes, medical expenses and lost earnings after your bowel injury.
  • Help raise standards and prevent other people suffering in the same way you did.
  • Gain access to justice and receive a formal apology for and explanation of the bowel injuries you suffered
  • Your claim is risk-free – if your claim is unsuccessful, you won’t pay a penny because all of our medical negligence solicitors work on a no win no fee basis.
