Types of Bladder and Bowel Injuries

Injury to the bowel or bladder is likely to have a major impact on a person’s quality of life.

We have expertise in handling medical negligence claims that arise in the following circumstances:

  • surgical errors leading to rupturing of the bladder
  • bowel and bladder perforation during surgery
  • bowel damage such as Crohn’s disease
  • delays in diagnosis in relation to a bladder or bowel complaint

If you have suffered bowel or bladder damage because of someone else’s negligence, our team of bowel and bladder medical negligence solicitors are here to provide assistance.

Common types of bowel and bladder damage

  • spinal damage
  • nerve damage
  • surgical damage
  • undiagnosed and untreated tumours

Issues that result from bladder injuries

  • bleeding
  • infection
  • blockage of the urethra

Issues may develop as the result of a doctor not recognising your symptoms as being related to the bowel and failing to act quickly. Bladder injury can also result from the use of catheters, either due to infection or incorrect insertion or management.
