Injuries to the kidneys can have significant consequences for the victims and their quality of life – especially if the kidney damage was sustained through no fault of the victim’s own. If you’ve suffered from kidney damage because of someone else’s negligence, you could be able to make a claim for compensation. Read on to find out how much you could claim, and discover whether a compensation claims solicitor could help with your case.
- Damage to one kidney: up to £20,000
- Loss of one kidney: up to £40,000
- Loss or serious damage to both kidneys: up to £100,000
- Misdiagnosed or incorrectly treated kidney stone: up to £3,000
The kidneys play an essential role in the body, removing waste products by producing urine, which then leaves the body. They regulate electrolyte levels and control the balance of fluids in the body, as well as filtering the blood.
There are many different ways in which these organs can be harmed or injured. Blunt trauma or impact to the kidneys can mean they’re unable to perform to their highest capacity, while high blood pressure can also stop the kidneys from working properly, causing what’s known as chronic kidney disease. The misdiagnosis of certain illnesses can also lead to kidney damage – for example, if a medical professional doesn’t pick up on an enlarged prostate, a blood clot around the kidneys or an overload of toxins in the blood, it can result in serious damage to these vital organs.
If the kidneys are damaged or lost entirely, the victim’s quality of life can be severely impacted. They may need to undergo regular dialysis, which purifies the blood where the kidneys can’t. They might also find that they must give up work or adapt their homes, at great financial cost.
Whatever your kidney injury, and however it was sustained, we could help you to claim the compensation that will help you get your life back on track. The compensation you could receive is dictated by a number of factors. The more severe your kidney injury, the higher level of compensation you’ll be eligible for. The legal system also considers factors such as any financial losses you’ve incurred through treatment or recovery, as well as payments for stress and inconvenience caused.
