About abdominal injuries and diseases
Diseases and injuries which affect the abdomen can be incredibly serious, and can severely impact an individual’s quality of life. The abdomen is home to some of the body’s most important organs, including the kidneys, the liver, the bladder and, for women, the reproductive system.
Unfortunately, hundreds of people every year suffer from illnesses and injuries through no fault of their own – many of them affecting the abdomen area. But whether it’s a routine surgery gone wrong, a negligent employer or a restaurant with poor hygiene practices, you could be able to claim compensation for the pain and distress caused.
Compensation awards are calculated based on a number of factors. The severity of your injury or illness will be considered, as will any financial losses you’ve incurred as a result. If you’ve had to take time off work, or splash out for expensive treatment, you could be reimbursed entirely. There are also allowances for changes you need to make to your lifestyle – if you need full-time care or you cannot go back to work, the compensation award will reflect this.
If you’ve suffered an abdominal disease or injury that wasn’t your fault, get in touch with our team today to discuss your next steps.
Types of abdominal injury and illness
- Food poisoning – this is perhaps the most common abdominal illness, with thousands of cases coming through every year. Bacteria in contaminated food is the main cause. Food can become contaminated when it’s not cooked thoroughly, when it’s not stored properly, or when it’s handled by someone with poor hygiene.
- Kidney damage – the kidneys filter out the toxins from your body, sending them to the bladder for removal. Kidney damage can be caused by trauma (a car accident, for example), disease, severe dehydration or exposure to certain harmful pollutants.
- Stab wounds – if the abdomen is penetrated by a sharp object, it can cause severe injury to the organs within. Often these injuries are life-changing – victims can have trouble digesting food, and many experience bowel problems which go onto dictate their diet.
How compensation can help
Compensation can’t turn back the clocks on your illness or injury – but it can help you live a better quality of life in the aftermath. If you require medical attention, specialist equipment or a long period of time off work, compensation can support you and your family, and ensure you don’t experience financial problems as you recover.
