About perforated or ruptured bowel claims
The bowel is an essential part of the digestive system – if it ruptures, the consequences can be life-threatening. A small nick or cut can cause the contents of the bowel to leak out into the body, which can also lead to infection, septic shock or permanent organ damage.
There are a number of different causes for a ruptured or perforated bowel. If you already suffer from health problems, such as Crohn’s disease, you’ll be at a higher risk of perforations or ruptures. Injuries can also cause a tear in the bowel, especially blunt trauma. Medical negligence is also a key factor in many bowel perforations. Misdiagnosis of an illness can lead to the bowel rupturing – in some serious cases, the bowel can be nicked by surgeons during an operation, causing a puncture wound.
If your claim is successful, you’ll be awarded compensation. The amount varies based on a number of factors, including the severity of the perforation (and any lasting damage it’s caused). Those assessing the claim will also consider any financial losses you’ve incurred as a result of specialist treatment, or not being able to work.
Whatever the cause of your perforated bowel, get in touch with our team today and discover whether you could be able to claim compensation.
Complications arising from a perforated or ruptured bowel
- Infection – if infection spreads to the surrounding organs, there’s a risk you could lose the function of them altogether.
- Sepsis – this is an infection of the blood, which is life-threatening if not diagnosed and treated appropriately.
- Peritonitis – this occurs when the layer of tissue which lines the stomach becomes infected, usually with bacteria or fungi.
- Septic shock – this is another side effect of infection. It can cause organ failure and abnormal blood clotting.
