Urology

Urology refers to medical complaints involving the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra and the reproductive organs.

Errors in treatment may result in adverse outcomes and injuries. If you have suffered from an error made it will undoubtedly affect how you manage your day-to-day life and may also affect your ability to work and your lifestyle.

What are errors in treatment?

Errors made in relation to urological treatment can arise in a wide range of situations and circumstances to include events associated with:

  • Kidney disease and renal failure

  • Kidney Stones

  • Kidney removal

  • Diagnosis and management of bladder cancer

  • Diagnosis and management of testicular cancer

  • Diagnosis and management of prostate cancer

  • Problems following vasectomy operations

  • Incontinence following various surgical procedures

Medical care and rehabilitation

Every case will be different depending on the facts. We have vast experience of dealing with various types of urology claims and we work with rehabilitation units throughout the country. We take an active role in providing quality information and advice about the extra resources that may be available to our clients during the continuance of any claim.

We work with rehabilitation experts both in the NHS and in the private sector to ensure the continuity of your care.

It is vital that you maximise your recovery through active rehabilitation. Our aim is to help rebuild your life by obtaining interim payments of compensation to assist you with:

  • Rehabilitation

  • Re-education/training

  • Transport

  • Housing

  • Aids and equipment

  • Care support

  • Therapeutic services

  • Case management.

Long-term support and care

Some people who suffer from injuries as a result of negligent treatment will require some support for the rest of their lives. We have a wide range of contacts with organisations that can assist you and can work closely with you including:

  • Case managers who will assess and organise any support and care you may need;

  • Support workers who will visit you on a regular basis to provide you support and help;

  • Community rehabilitation such as occupational therapy.

  • Charities and support groups.

When should I contact a solicitor?

You or your family should contact a solicitor as soon as possible. The sooner we can commence work on your claim the sooner we can begin to assist you.

We can advise you on your benefit rights and also advise on dealing with debts which might arise due to being off work. Our specialist community care team can also provide advice and support in relation to your ongoing entitlement to health and social care provision and support at home or in the community.

Can I claim compensation?

Errors in treatment can be made by a number of healthcare professionals and can vary greatly in the effect they have on a patient.  If you have experienced an error in treatment and have suffered as a result of that error then we may be able to help you make a claim.

If you believe that you or someone you know has suffered as a result of medical negligence please contact Tim Spring. We deal with clients throughout the country and we will visit you at your home, hospital or rehabilitation unit.
