What is a traumatic bladder injury claim?
The bladder is the essential organ in your pelvic region used to store urine. The bladder has effectively a one way valve system allowing urine to enter and fill – as the bladder fills it becomes distended.
A distended or full bladder is more prone to injury in a trauma with a blunt or sharp object, such as in a high velocity impact as in a car accident.
Traumatic injury could include a serious injury, such as a ruptured bladder.
Some causes of traumatic bladder injury include: car crashes; a severe fall from a height as off a ladder at work; a blow to the abdominal area as in a motorcycle accident or injuries sustained during pelvic surgery.
The longer the rupture remains untreated the more dangerous the condition you might experience – bladder failure is a realistic possibility.
A ruptured bladder can be remedied by surgery.
If you suffer a trauma injury to the bladder (such as in a car or motor bike accident); due to work conditions (such as defective work equipment, or heavy lifting) or as a result of medical negligence – you are likely to be able to make a bladder injury claim for compensation.
What is a prolapsed bladder injury claim?
Women (especially older women) are prone to a problem known as a prolapsed bladder. The front wall of your vagina provides support to the bladder. This wall can weaken with extreme exertion or stress such as heavy lifting at work or natural causes, such as childbirth. If the weakening is significant the bladder may no longer be supported and can drop into the vagina – this is known as a prolapse.
Bladder prolapses are graded 1 to 4. The higher the grade the worse the prolapse and the more your bladder injury clam is likely to be worth. A grade 1 is the mildest form of all in which a small part of your bladder drops into your vagina; a grade 4 is the most extreme in which the whole of your bladder drops into your vagina.
A prolapsed bladder can be caused through clinical negligence (especially during childbirth or operations) and through extreme exertions (such as heavy lifting at work).
If you suffer from a prolapsed bladder you might experience symptoms, such as problems urinating; incontinence (bladder leakage)when coughing or sneezing; lower back and pelvic pain or pain during sexual intercourse.
