    Compensation for bruised kidneys


    Compensation for bruised kidneys

    We rely on our kidneys to filter waste and toxins from our blood, and a kidney injury can be very painful, although it is usually not serious. Bruised kidneys are usually the result of a heavy impact to the lower back – they’re commonly seen in car accident patients or those who have suffered a fall. If you have suffered bruised kidneys, either after a fall from height or after being involved in a collision, claiming personal injury compensation may be possible if somebody else is to blame for your accident.

    For example, if you have been injured after your vehicle was struck by a speeding driver, they could be held liable for your injuries. If a fall from height at work or a sharp blow to the lower back was caused due to a lack of safety equipment or procedures, it could be that your employer is held liable for your accident. Call Accident Advice Helpline for confidential, no-obligation advice within three years of your accident and find out if you could make a claim.

    Bruised kidney symptoms

    The symptoms of a bruised kidney usually occur immediately and include:

    • Pain on one side of the lower back
    • Nausea and vomiting
    • Blood in urine
    • Muscle spasms in the back

    If you suffer any of these symptoms, immediate medical attention is needed and you may have to undergo an x-ray or CT scan. Normally, you’ll be monitored for a few days and your kidney should heal on its own within a week. Drinking fluids can help, and taking painkillers or using an ice pack or heat pad can help to relieve the pain. In severe cases of kidney injuries, surgery may be needed and complications could lead to high blood pressure, delayed bleeding and infection which may affect you for the rest of your life, requiring ongoing treatment.
