Common Causes of Bladder Injuries

The bladder is a vital organ that stores and controls urine in our bodies. Living without a functioning bladder or with a damaged bladder can make life very difficult and painful for individuals. Symptoms can include incontinence when sneezing or coughing, pain in the lower back and pelvic area, and infections caused by leakage.

Surgical procedures can cause bladder injuries, although thankfully most of the time these are only minor and easy to remedy. However, sometimes these personal injuries are more serious and can be due to medical negligence – which is when the persons involved have a right to make a claim for compensation.

There are numerous different reasons for bladder injury.

Operations including hysterectomies and caesareans or c-sections are naturally risky and there is always a chance that bladder injury could happen. However, these risks should be minimised as much as possible by medical professionals and measures should be in place to ensure action is taken immediately should bladder damage happen. If the anatomy of an individual is normal and the bladder is where it should be, medical negligence may be the reason for the bladder being cut during surgery. And if the bladder is damaged but this is not identified at the time, leading to serious complications such as blood clots and blood poisoning as well as more surgery, medical negligence may be cited.

Top 10 Reasons For Bladder Injury

1. Medical negligence during surgery


2. Medical negligence after surgery


3. Road traffic accidents that cause bladder trauma


4. Slips, trips and falls that cause bladder damage


5. Prolapsed bladder caused by heavy lifting or child birth


6. Tears, cuts or damage to the ureter tubes


7. Spinal cord injuries that affect bladder function


8. Poor care post-operation that leads to infections and further surgery


9. Urinary tract infections. The urinary tract consists of the kidneys, ureter tubes, bladder and urethra.


10. Penetration of the bladder for reasons ranging from assault to orthopaedic pins piercing the bladder wall
