Colorectal Cancer Claims Study

This study focused on paid cases of colorectal cancer claims for a 15 year time period (1991-2006). Topics consist of: physician specialties, stages of colorectal cancer, tests identifying colorectal cancer, symptoms, patient age ranges, indemnity payments for colorectal cancer claims and more. The publication includes a comparison of the 1991 PIAA Colorectal Cancer Claims Study to data from 2006 as well. Colorectal cancer is a leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. and physicians and risk managers alike can learn from this data to hopefully prevent future adverse events.

The need to conduct a special study on laparoscopic injuries was indicated by the high frequency of claims reported in a relatively short period. The study includes paid claims, claims that have not been resolved and those claims without a payment to the plaintiff. Nineteen PIAA member companies reported 535 cases that related to this condition. (electronic version only)
