Am I eligible for a medical negligence claim?
If you had a colonoscopy between 2017 and 2022 in the Albury Wodonga region and were recalled for a second colonoscopy, you may be eligible for a medical negligence claim.
It’s important to also seek legal advice as soon as possible if you were diagnosed with colorectal cancer or if you believe you have suffered a physical or psychological injury as a result of the second colonoscopy.
