Failure to Diagnose Bowel Obstruction Attorneys

A bowel obstruction is a dangerous medical condition in which food and liquids are prevented from passing through the large or small intestine. Without proper diagnosis and treatment, a bowel obstruction can lead to severe medical problems, including gangrene, sepsis, shock, and even death. It is the responsibility of doctors and medical staff to monitor patients for risk of bowel obstruction and to take appropriate measures when warning signs exist. Failure to do so may constitute medical negligence.

At Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP, our attorneys have significant experience handling failure to diagnose bowel obstruction claims and other cases of medical malpractice. We are committed to helping our clients obtain justice and compensation for the losses they have suffered due to negligent medical treatment.

Contact us online or by telephone at 1-866-516-5887 to speak with an experienced New York failure to diagnose bowel obstruction lawyer.

Bowel Obstructions and Medical Malpractice

Common signs of bowel obstruction include abdominal pain, constipation, vomiting, bloating and diarrhea.

Potential causes of bowel perforations include:

  • Open or laparoscopic intestinal surgery
  • Hysterectomy errors
  • Digestive disease
  • Intestinal blockage
  • Crohn's disease
  • Diverticulitis
  • Adhesion/surgical scar tissue

Failure to treat a blocked intestine can lead to a perforated or ischemic bowel. The condition often presents with high fever, intense abdominal pain and other symptoms. If the obstruction is not managed appropriately using an NG tube, colonoscopy or surgical intervention when necessary, the bowel will perforate causing toxins to be released into the bloodstream, leading to sepsis. If not diagnosed and treated in a timely manner, such an infection can progress to the point it is no longer treatable by antibiotics.

Our attorneys have the legal and medical knowledge to effectively handle complex medical negligence cases involving failure to diagnose bowel obstruction and other medical errors. We have a proven record of success obtaining favorable verdicts and settlements for our valued clients.
