Can I claim compensation if my bowel was cut or injured during a colonoscopy?

A perforation of the bowel is not usually, in itself, enough to bring a successful claim. For example, errors can occur during surgery or a colonoscopy which are identified and repaired fast enough that the patient does not require any additional treatment.

However, if avoidable errors were made during a colonoscopy and this negligence results in a chronic or dangerous health condition, or death, there are likely to be grounds to make a colonoscopy negligence claim.
