Urology Claims

Start your claim

Individuals may be referred to a urologist to address issues relating to the urinary tract, such as kidney failure, kidney stones, and issues with the urinary bladder, ureters, or prostate. They may also undergo surgery involving any of these organs.

A urologist may also be consulted if there is a suspicion you may have developed bladder, kidney, or testicular cancer, a requirement for circumcision, or problems associated with passing urine.

Urologist negligence

The standard of care you receive from your treating consultant, nurses, hospital, and other clinicians should not fall below that expected by a reasonable body of medical opinion.

You are owed a duty of care and if the treatment you receive falls below the required standard of care and you have suffered injury or loss as a result, you will be entitled to compensation for your loss.

A recent analysis of urological claims published in March 2021 suggested there was still some way to go in improving urological services and that delays in diagnosis and treatment, as well as inadequate consent, were particular issues.

The analysis also suggests that there is a failure to adhere to the relevant surgical guidelines.

If you believe the urological treatment you have received has been substandard, contact our team of lawyers who are experts in medical negligence.

Types of Urology negligence

Common examples of negligent urology care include:

  • Surgical error causing incontinence, nerve damage or impotence
  • Delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis. This may include cancer of the prostate, bladder or testes
  • Failure to remove ureteric stent in good time
  • Damage to the urinary bladder or tract due to a failure to recognise complications or during surgery
  • Infection following an operation, due to inadequate post-operative care
  • Untreated kidney stones
  • Errors were made during circumcision (such as taking too much or too little foreskin)
  • Failure of a vasectomy procedure

Have you experienced urology negligence?

In order to prove medical negligence, the claimant must be able to prove that sub-standard or inadequate care led to their (or their loved ones’) injury or illness, causing unnecessary suffering. Urological damage can have a significant impact on quality of life as it can lead to incontinence, loss of sexual function, infertility, impotence, and psychological injury.

As medical negligence compensation claims can be complex by their nature, we advise our clients to seek legal advice at the earliest opportunity.

For us to be able to successfully build a urology negligence claim, it is vital that the claimant can prove four key points:

  • That the urologist or medical professional had a duty of care towards the claimant
  • That the urologist or medical professional did not meet the expected standards of care when treating the claimant
  • That the claimant was injured or suffered illness as a result of the negligence
  • That the claimant suffered physical, psychological, and/or financial harm as a direct result of the negligence

Our medical expertise enables us to quickly establish your chances of successfully bringing a claim.

In most cases, we operate on a no-win, no-fee basis, putting you at no financial risk should you be unsuccessful.
