Maryland medical malpractice attorney Marcus Boston talks about whether a cut colon during a colonoscopy is medical malpractice here in Maryland. We get this question a lot and individuals who have had their bile duct cut during gallbladder removal often have the same question. Well, like a lot of things in the law the answer depends on the facts of your case.
If the doctor injures your colon during a procedure and notices it, and repairs it, then chances are you may not have a good case for a Maryland medical malpractice attorney. In most instances like this the doctor probably has not departed from the medical standard of case.
Where things get tricky is when a doctor, for whatever reason does not notice the perforated colon and goes about the procedure. The patient is sent home after surgery but continues to complain to the doctor about pain. The doctor does not act on the patient’s concerns and eventually it is discovered that the patient’s colon was injured. Usually at this stage the patient has serious injuries.
