Legal Helpline: ☎ 1800 529 835

 

The Consultant Gastroenterologist is a doctor specialising in diseases and disorders of the gastro-intestinal tract (the gut or bowel). They may also be known as a Consultant Physician with a special interest in Gastroenterology.

These specialists deal with illnesses such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, coeliac disease, oesophageal varices, gastric and duodenal ulcers as well as stomach and bowel cancer.

Most common clinical areas / procedures leading to a claim of clinical negligence include:

  • Negligent diagnoses (or misdiagnosis) and management of bowel cancer, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis or liver disease.
  • Problems with colonoscopy or endoscopy or ERCP procedures.
  • Problems and side effects of medication for bowel disorders.

If a gastroenterologist's negligence, or other wrongdoing causes injury or illness to a patient, the aggrieved party may be eligible to file a legal claim to seek compensation for their losses and suffering.

If you or a loved one has suffered injury and loss at the hands of a gastroenterologist or hospital, obtaining professional legal advice is the best way to protect and maximise your legal interests. Due to statutes of limitations, it is important that you seek legal advice as soon as possible.
