Compensation For A Ruptured Bowel

If you have suffered complications because of a ruptured bowel and you think medical negligence is to blame, you could be entitled to compensation for the damage you have been caused.

Causes of a ruptured bowel

A ruptured bowel is when there is a hole in the wall of the intestine. This will usually happen for one of three reasons:

1. Bowel conditions: medical conditions such as ulcerative colitis will put the bowel under strain, gradually causing it to become damaged. It is possible that this 'wear and tear' will be so severe that a hole develops.

2. Surgery: abdominal surgery carries a number of risks, one of which is injury to the internal organs such as the bowel. If the bowel is nicked with a surgical instrument, the injury must be detected and repaired there and then.

3. Traumatic injury: traumatic incidents such as a car accident can cause internal damage such as a ruptured bowel.

Compensation For A Ruptured Bowel

A compensation claim for a ruptured bowel can amount to a significant settlement figure. If you have suffered a ruptured bowel, we will advise you of your prospects of success for making a claim and the likely amount of compensation you should receive if your claim is successful.
