We Specialise In Bowel Cancer Negligence Compensation Claims

Bowel cancer may be silent and might not cause any noticeable symptoms in its early stages. It is recommended that Australians over the age of 50 years are screened for bowel cancer every two years. This is part of the National Bowel Cancer Screen Program. Screening is not dependent on the presence of symptoms and in fact, the Cancer Institute of NSW warns people not to wait for symptoms before screening. Bowel cancer screening consists of a faecal test that can be performed at home. The test enables the detection of occult bleeding in faeces, which may be an indication of early-stage bowel cancer that is not causing any obvious symptoms.

Bowel cancer is not a disease limited to people over the age of 50 years and people of any age can develop bowel cancer. Therefore, it is important to seek medical advice as soon as you notice any symptoms, particularly if there is a family history of bowel cancer. According to the Cancer Council, symptoms of bowel cancer can include changes in bowel habits, a feeling of incomplete evacuation of faeces, bloody stools, abdominal or anal pain, weight loss or unexplained fatigue. If you develop symptoms of bowel cancer, it is prudent to consult your doctor. A prudent medical practitioner will take a detailed summary of your symptoms and complaints and refer you for further investigations. Often, a colonoscopy may be required to either exclude or confirm a diagnosis of bowel cancer.

It is well accepted that almost 90% of bowel cancer cases can be successfully treated if diagnosed early. Undiagnosed, bowel cancer can become advanced and spread beyond the walls of the bowel. Bowel cancer can metastasise to the ovaries, liver, lungs and other organs. Metastatic late-stage bowel cancer is often associated with poor prognostic outcomes and a reduced life expectancy.

Types of Claims for Bowel Cancer Negligence: 

  • Delayed Diagnosis or Misdiagnosis of Bowel Cancer 
  • Failure to Perform Timely or Appropriate Bowel Cancer Screening 
  • Inadequate or Incorrect Bowel Cancer Treatment 
  • Failure to Properly Monitor and Follow up on Bowel Cancer Patients 
  • Negligent Management of Bowel Cancer Patients’ Medical Records 
  • Negligence in Bowel Cancer Surgery or Procedures 
  • Misinterpretation of Bowel Cancer Test Results 
  • Failure to Refer Patients to Specialists for Further Evaluation 
  • Claims for dependents arising from the death of the bowel cancer patient due to negligence

My last stage of Workers compensation claim was managed by Emma Perkins, Natasha Stojanovic, Rebecca Dunshea and Kelli Robinson at Garling and Co. Lawyers who went the extra mile with their service... from the beginning to the end of 3 years of my case. I have become very anxious with almost everything after a workplace injury and a lot of times I probably ask more questions than I need to, but Emma Perkins always finds clear answers to my questions in a short time and explains to me patiently even using her mealtime or between her meeting and make me feel that I have been very well take care and supported. I am so grateful and extremely satisfied. The excellent service, attitude, and culture of Metthew Garling and his team are second to none with a very high success rate. If you going to battle with your workplace injury for a short or long period, you are better off with Garling and Co. lawyers who are able back you up every step of the way. I strongly recommend it to anybody who needs their service like me. Julieread more

Work cover fund is GOVT’S money but insurer think that it is from their 14th generation. So only they can have it. Not only that, people from the work, IME doctor from insurer, back to work... coordinator from work, Rehab provider from any side push the worker as hard as possible that the worker (doesn’t matter how the workers mental or psychical condition) either go back to his pre injury duty or leave the job.More over on that very bumpy any difficult journey some of them only treat the worker as a MONEY MAKING MECHINE .in some point worker feels like, no rooms to breath. On that moment need someone to support legally, someone to care, someone to relive.On my case I believe that, somehow, I manage to make my God happy. That’s why God sends me to Matthew Gerling and his team Allison, Rebecca and Nathan, and all of GARLING & co Lawyers.I am not good enough in English, can’t express my gratitude.Matthew, Allison, Rebecca and Nathan, please accept my appreciation and pass it to others.read more

Bowel Cancer Claims Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can bowel cancer be misdiagnosed?

Yes, bowel cancer could be misdiagnosed. Unfortunately, doctors do not always suspect early bowel cancer, particularly if the symptoms are mild or non-specific for bowel cancer in a young and otherwise healthy person. It is therefore important to continue to present to your doctor for investigation until a diagnosis is made to explain your symptoms.

2. What condition could bowel cancer be mistaken for?

Some symptoms of bowel cancer are non-specific and may be caused by benign conditions. For example, abdominal pain and difficulty passing bowel motions could be wrongly attributed to constipation. Loose stools could be attributed to food allergies or benign bowel conditions such as irritable bowel disease. Bloody stools may be attributed to haemorrhoids, which in turn are attributed to constipation.
