ERCP Complications: Was it Caused by Negligence or Incompetence?
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, or ERCP, is a medical process that can be used to diagnose and treat certain medical conditions involving the digestive system. When patients become victims of ERCP malpractice, they can face severe and even life-threatening complications such as pancreatitis, infections, and internal bleeding. If you or a loved one suffered injury or death from an ERCP procedure, call Dellecker, Wilson, King, McKenna, Ruffier & Sos, LLP as soon as possible. We’ll work to earn the compensation you deserve.
Was it Negligence?
A critical part of determining whether or not you have a viable legal case is determining the cause of the complications. According to the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse, approximately 6 to 10 percent of patients experience complications following an ERCP with an experienced doctor. This statistic shows that complications may be a result of the ERCP process itself, and not necessarily caused by negligence or malice from a medical professional. We’ll observe the facts to ensure that your case has a strong legal standing.
