  • Overview

    When can you claim compensation for clinical negligence during urology treatment?

    We expect to be safe in the hands of medical practitioners. Urological medical negligence can have devastating effects on our health and psychological wellbeing. When a medical practitioner causes injury during a urological procedure, it is often possible to claim compensation.

    The most common types of urological claims arise from complications associated with surgery, for example:

    • Bowel damage following a TVT procedure to treat incontinence
    • Ureter or bladder damage during surgery
    • Negligent or unnecessary nephrectomy (kidney removal)
    • Negligently performed colposuspension
    • Negligent vasectomy
    • Negligent prostatectomy
    • Circumcision complications.

We would like to thank you for the thorough, efficient hard work you have done on Chris’s behalf. You have informed us of every stage of development as it has happened and we are very grateful for that.


We received sound and clearly explained advice, together with a response that was both sympathetic and professional. We have been kept regularly informed of progress and you have always responded promptly to any queries that we’ve risen in a constructive and helpful manner.


Many thanks for all your support and hard work through a torrid 2 ½ years. We both appreciate it could have ended very differently without your dedication and attention to detail.


I thank you so much for your excellent service and will recommend you strongly to anyone needing help.


Overall a very good and responsive service - I wasn't anticipating this. The process of claiming under this area of law is more complicated than I thought it would be but it was translated very efficiently to me.
