We've got your gynaecology / urology claim covered
Any surgery or medical treatment that goes wrong can be devastating, but incidents involving gynaecological or urological procedures can often be worse for people. Any illness or injury in this area of medicine must and should be dealt with properly and professionally.
Unfortunately, this is not always the case. When it comes to medical mistakes in this area, the implication of any error can be devastating, long-lasting and often leaves people feeling embarrassed and mistrustful.
How can we help?
At Patient Claim Line, we understand that mistakes in this area can leave you feeling angry, alone and unsure who to trust. Often, it’s difficult to even consider a compensation claim. However, medical mistakes can be costly, not just emotionally, but also financially. You may be unable to work or left significantly out of pocket, which only adds to what is already a very stressful time.
The team at Patient Claim Line can help. Our legal team have experience of every type of Medical Negligence claim, and so chances are that we will have dealt with a similar situation before. We can use that experience and expertise to advise you on whether or not you have a case, and hopefully help provide some answers as well. Our team will be with you every step of the way, we take care of any paperwork and any time you have any questions or things are not clear, or you feel someone is fobbing you off, you can turn to us for help.
We will then get to work to ensure that you are fully and properly compensated for any losses or out of pocket expenses, and get a fair and just level of compensation, which we hope will help put what has happened behind you.

Endometriosis misdiagnosis claims
Endometriosis is a condition whereby the cells that line your womb start to grow tissue in other parts of the body, most commonly around the ovaries and fallopian tubes. It can affect other parts of the body such as the bladder and the lungs, but this is rare.
In endometriosis, this tissue thickens, breaks down and bleeds with your menstrual cycle. Your body does get rid of the broken-down tissue and blood very slowly, but while it’s there it can cause pain, swelling and scarring.
Endometriosis is a long-term condition that can have a significant impact on your life, but receiving the correct treatment at the start can certainly help the condition to feel more manageable and help prevent complications.
Symptoms of endometriosis
Symptoms of endometriosis can include:
- Dysmenorrhea – painful periods
- Chronic pain in your lower tummy or back (pelvic pain) – usually worse during your period
- Pain during or after sex
- Pain when urinating
- Painful bowel movements
- Feeling sick, constipation, diarrhoea, or blood in your urine during your period
- Difficulty getting pregnant
What happens if endometriosis is left untreated?
If endometriosis has been left undiagnosed or untreated, your symptoms may worsen. Some people develop complications such as fertility problems, ovarian cysts, adhesions or bladder and bowel problems; which can have a significant impact on your long-term physical and mental health.
