Compensation Claims for Kidney Damage Caused through Injury
Damage to the kidneys impedes urine production, and has a variety of causes. This can lead to an accumulation of waste products in the body, which can be potentially lethal for the victim, and requires immediate medical attention.
Some effects of an acute kidney injury:
- Urine discoloured by blood.
- Urinating with pain.
- Swelling in abdomen.
- Pain in the abdomen.
- Quickened heartbeat.
- Fall in blood pressure.
- Paleness in the face.
- Heavy perspiration.
How much could you claim?
If you have suffered due to another person’s negligence, a claim for compensation could be made based on the severity of your injuries.
The standard medical procedure to determine if an individual has injured their kidney is a CAT scan, if the victim has experienced extreme bleeding an operation may be required to stop it. In certain cases if the damage or injury to the kidney is serious, part of it will need to be removed.
Typical compensation amounts include:
Loss of, or loss of functional use, of both kidneys: up to £100,000
Loss of, or loss of functional use, of one kidney: up to £25,000
