How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Bladder Injury?

By Cat Way. Last Updated 30th May 2023. In this guide, we will discuss bladder injury claims. If you’ve suffered a bladder injury as a result of another party’s negligent actions, you may be entitled to claim.

We will discuss when you could potentially make a bladder injury compensation claim, and outline the criteria that your case must meet in order to be valid. We will also discuss how a bladder injury can occur, including how an accident at work could lead to a bladder injury. Following this, we will discuss how compensation is calculated, and how a No Win No Fee solicitor could help you.

Ruptured Bladder Compensation Claims

When it comes to bladder problems compensation claim statistics show that blunt trauma and penetrating accidents are the most common cause of bladder damage.

Blunt trauma is the more common of the two causes, primarily because they are often encountered in even low-speed road traffic accidents. When a person is involved in a car crash, the blunt trauma to the pelvis or lower abdomen can very easily damage the bladder.

If you have been involved in an accident such as a car or motorcycle crash, and the resulting blunt trauma damaged your bladder, then as long as the accident was not your fault, Legal Expert should be able to help you claim. Call us on the telephone number at the bottom of this guide to find out how we can help with bladder injury claims.

Prolapsed Bladder Compensation Claims

One of the more common reasons that women need to make bladder injury compensation claims, is due to a prolapsed bladder. Again, this is a childbirth injury most usually. It is caused by stretched or strained pelvic floor muscles. This means the bladder is no longer supported properly, and it can shift downwards, pressing onto the vagina, causing in mild cases nothing more than a bulge, but in serious cases, severe pain and problems passing water.

If you have bladder injury symptoms related to strained or stretched pelvic floor muscles after childbirth, it could be that the medical staff who managed the birth made a mistake, injuring your pelvic floor muscles. In this case, if you can Legal Expert on the telephone number at the bottom of this guide, we can help you make a claim for damages.

Bladder Accidents At Work

Every UK company is required to comply fully with all Health & Safety regulations that apply to their main operations. For example, a construction firm must follow all of the H&S guideless for the construction industry.

Furthermore, there are a number of global regulations that every company has to adhere too, with regards to keeping the workplace safe for employees. When a company fails in its obligation to meet these H&S standards, and it leads to an accident injuring an employee, then a damages claim can be made.

In some industries such as construction, engineering, mining, manufacturing and other heavy injuries, blunt trauma accidents are a risk. As we have seen in previous sections of this guide, blunt trauma to the abdomen or pelvic region is a cause of bladder damage.

You will find a general indication of personal injury compensation levels in a section further down this page, and these amounts apply to workplace injuries as well. Legal Expert is experienced in helping employees to claim damages from their employer due to accidents in the workplace. Contact us at the telephone number found at the bottom of this guide to find out how we can help with bladder injury claims.

What Can Bladder Injury Claims Include?

If you have been affected by a bladder injury or some other medical condition such as bladder cancer, or if you have suffered clinical negligence, such as your bladder being damaged by a badly fitted urinary catheter, then you may be able to make a damages claim if it can be proven a third party caused the injury.

There are a number of standard types of damages that bladder injury claims settlements are commonly made up of, including:

  • General damages– all of the pain and suffering of the initial injury and any ongoing negative health effects:
    • Immediate pain and suffering – if an accident caused the bladder injury, then you can claim the pain and suffering of the accident, and also the treatment of your injury.
    • Psychological damage – this would cover longer-lasting problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder or depression that arose due to the injury.
    • Disabilities and permanent damage – for all long-term effects of the injury that will have a negative effect on a person’s life.
  • Special damages – all of the financial and other losses that are the result of the physical injury

Bladder Injury Compensation Claims Calculator

As we mentioned in the section above, your potential personal injury compensation settlement could include general and special damages.

Below, we have included a table featuring guideline compensation brackets taken from the 16th edition of the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG). This is a document that solicitors and other legal professionals can refer to when valuing general damages. It’s important to note that these figures are guidelines, and as such, they aren’t guaranteed amounts.

Injury Severity Notes Amount
Bladder (A) Complete loss of function of the bowel, as well as loss of control of urinary function, with ongoing suffering and additional complications. Up to
Bladder (B) Complete loss of function of the bowel, as well as loss of control of the urinary function. Up to
Bladder (C) Some loss of function of the bowel, combined with some level of incontinence and possibly permanent pain. £63,980 to
Bladder (D) For injuries that have, after some time, healed fully but will leave the person in danger of bowel problems in the future. £23,410 to

Some bladder injury claims also result in special damages. However, in order to claim under this heading, you need to be able to provide proof of your financial losses. Evidence could include bank statements and receipts.

Special damages could help you recoup the cost of:

  •   Lost earnings.
  •   Prescriptions and over-the-counter medication.
  •   Travel to and from appointments and consultations.
  •   Childcare and domestic help.
