  • 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.
       

    How we can help you with your urology compensation claim:

    • The size of our clinical negligence team and the breadth of our knowledge means we are likely to have already succeeded in recovering compensation for a urology-related clinical negligence claim that is similar to yours

    • Our overriding aim is to protect your interests and achieve the most advantageous outcome for the long term. We make sure your case is fully investigated and guide you carefully through each step of the claim process
    • In every compensation claim, our focus is on your individual requirements. We act with understanding of the stresses that bringing a medical negligence claim can involve
    • We can help you find out why the system failed you and ensure it is fully investigated to prevent it happening to somebody else

    Head injury and stroke following trip in hospital

    Our client, Mrs K, required multiple surgeries after suffering post-operative anastomotic leaks and a ureteric injury during surgery for bowel obstruction.  Unfortunately, Mrs K then suffered a head injury and stroke when she tripped over a raised area in the hospital corridor.  At that time it was also found that a JJ stent had been left in place for 9 months after her previous surgery, causing urosepsis and other urological problems.    

    Failure to diagnose and treat testicular torsion.

    Our client, Mr P, attended A&E on two separate occasions reporting pain and discomfort in his groin.

    Failure to monitor kidneys leads to end stage kidney disease

    Our client, Mrs A, was referred to North Middlesex University Hospital for investigations into her kidney function. She was discharged, but the nephrologist did not advise her GP to continue to monitor her. Eight years later end stage kidney disease was diagnosed. Damages of £32,000 were recovered for the pain and suffering and financial losses sustained as a result of the delay in diagnosis.

    Should I settle my medical negligence compensation claim directly with NHS Resolution?

    Often when patients are unhappy with the treatment they have received from an NHS hospital they will make a formal complaint to the Trust. Formal complaints are a useful way of getting essential information about the treatment a patient has received and may sometimes result in that Trust apologising to the aggrieved patient.

James Cahan's approach was exemplary, he was both approachable and understanding at all times.  

Client

As mentioned, I was very impressed at the start! As the case grew and went on, I felt completely safe, and trusted Jonathan to act in my best interests, though everything was always run by me before going ahead with anything, without the experience and knowledge.

Client

They worked as hard as possible to get me a result that I did not think I would end up with. The communication with my lawyer and his staff was excellent, and I felt at ease discussing such private matters with my lawyer, which is a rarity for me as I am a very private person.

Client

Oliver was very helpful and friendly, and settled the case within a short space of time.

Client

Kept me up to date with all stages of the claim. Fees were good, and Oliver was very helpful and friendly.

Client

I would like to thank Jenny and her team for all their hard work and efforts during what has been a very traumatic 3 years.  Throughout this period, Jenny has been on hand with reassurance and advice.  At the same time, she assembled an excellent team of experts, which enabled me to reach a successful conclusion.

Client

I am so grateful to TS&P for all their work and help with my mother's case; it was a very complicated and time-consuming case.
