This can include the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra, as well as the parts of the male and female reproductive system. Some of the most common urological illnesses include prostate cancer, bladder cancer and testicular cancer, and the surgeries and treatments include vasectomy procedures, surgery to the bladder and the treatment of kidney stones.

What is a urological negligence claim?

Urological negligence claims deal with negligence in the field of urology – the branch of medicine focused on the urinary tract and parts of the male and female reproductive system. These claims can arise from surgical errors during urological procedures, incorrect or delayed diagnosis of urological conditions, inappropriate treatment plans, or misdiagnosis of urological diseases. As with other medical negligence claims, it must be demonstrated that the care provided fell below a reasonable standard and resulted in an injury to the patient.

Whilst the standard of care provided in our hospitals is generally very high, mistakes sometimes happen as a result of the negligence.

Common examples of urology negligence include:

  • Mistakes during surgery, which may cause incontinence, impotence or nerve damage.
  • Misdiagnosis or late diagnosis of prostate, bladder or testicular cancer.
  • Sterilisation procedures, including failed vasectomy or tubal ligation.
  • Treatment of kidney stones.
  • Circumcision.
  • Perforation of the bladder.

If you believe you have suffered a negligent urological injury you may be able to claim compensation for the following:

  • Compensation for your injuries, including for your pain and suffering.
  • Loss of earnings.
  • The cost of further medical treatment and expenses such as prescription charges.
  • Rehabilitation and care costs.
  • Travel expenses for past and future medical appointments.
