    When can you make a claim for a bladder injury?

    Before you can make a claim, you must ensure that you have a proper medical diagnosis of your bladder injury as sustained through the negligence of another whether in a road traffic accident, accident at work or been subject to medical negligence. Following confirmation of your bladder injury, you should consult a specialist personal injury solicitor who will be best to advise you of your claim and its merits. The only proof that you need to uphold is that you would not have suffered the injury but for the negligence of another and that they are therefore legally responsible for your subsequent bladder injury. Founding liability for your injury sustained is crucial but a specialist personal injury solicitor will be able to explain this to you in respect of your own case.

    What is a bladder injury?

    External bladder injuries result from a blunt or penetrating trauma to the lower abdomen, pelvis or perineum. Road traffic accidents or falls from height as well as accidents at work account for a number of personal injury type claims within this area. Although the majority of traumatic bladder type injuries can be remedied by surgery alone, some complications can occur such as infections like peritonitis, bleeding or urinary retention. Therefore, if you have suffered a bladder injury through an accident that was through the fault of another then you may be entitled to a claim for damages against that party.

    Types of bladder injury include:

    • Ruptured or Perforated Bladder: This type of injury is very serious and occurs through trauma towards the pelvic region. Injuries can either be blunt or penetrative where an individual has suffered an intense blow to the pelvic area else has suffered a piercing wound to the pelvic region.
    • Bladder Prolapse: This type of injury is associated with the weakening of a women’s bladder following the menopause however can be triggered through over-exertions in the workplace else medical negligence cases. A prolapsed bladder is not considered to be fatal although it can result in urinary difficulties thereafter.

    How much compensation is possible?

    Compensation for a bladder injury is determined by the severity of the damage sustained as well as the pain and suffering endured throughout. The nature of bladder injuries demands that surgery is often required therefore medical costs will also be included in any compensation offer made. Current and future loss of earnings will also be considered as well as any other travel expenses. The law itself offers guidance as to the level of compensation that should be awarded for bladder type injuries although these are only indicative. As such, minor injuries affecting bladder function may attract around £16,000 in damages whilst serious injuries may demand compensation from £57,000 and upwards. Each claim is considered on a case-by-case basis therefore legal counsel should always be sought in the first instance for advice on this type of personal injury claim.

    How can I make a claim?

    You are able to make a claim once you have received a proper medical diagnosis of your injury. Following confirmation of your suffering, you should consult a specialist personal injury solicitor who will offer guidance as to the merits of your claim.
