Bowel injuries can happen for a variety of reasons. Some are as a result of clinical negligence from a surgeon or doctor while others could be the result of a high impact collision.
It is understandable to want to learn more about how much compensation for bowel damage if this is the kind of injury yourself or a loved one has suffered. Below are some guidelines to show what you can expect depending on the type of injury you have suffered.
- If you have a complete dependence on the use of a colostomy and have no ability for natural bowel function then, age depending, a settlement figure will be up to £107,250
- If your condition is combined with severe abdominal injury and impaired bowel function, there is intermittent need for a colostomy and your future employment has been affected then fees usually range from £31,850 to £49,800
- If there has been a penetrating injury to your bowel then £9,000 to £17,400 are the likely fees for a successful claim
Making your bowel compensation claim with Jefferies Solicitors
A medical professional carrying out a procedure that requires working on or closely to the bowel should present patients with the risks beforehand and post-operative care should include being mindful of potential bowel problems following surgery.
Patients placed in the care of medical specialists are owed a duty of care. If it can be proven that this care was neglected then there could be an avenue to pursue medical negligence compensation.
Equally, if there is a road traffic accident that has injured your bowel and another party was at fault then you are again able to pursue personal injury compensation.
Jefferies Solicitors may be able to help you with your bowel injury claim for compensation whatever the circumstances are surrounding it.
