We can help you get back on track after a kidney injury

Kidney injuries, kidney cancer and kidney failure can be a terrifying ordeal to go through and have a huge impact on your physical and mental health

Not only do kidney injuries affect your physical health, but they could also leave you with ongoing medical treatment for many years, if not for life. They can impact your ability to live the life you once did, affect your relationships and inhibit your potential to earn a living. 

At National Accident Helpline, we understand how hard it can be to recover and adjust after a serious kidney injury. We're here to help you get your life back on track.

Money might not be the first thing on your mind during your recovery from a personal injury that resulted in a kidney problem, but claiming for kidney injury compensation could help you make the first few steps toward reclaiming your life. 

If you have suffered with your kidneys after an accident, talk to our team of personal injury experts about making a kidney injury compensation claim. You can reach us on or request a callback at a time that's convenient for you and your family.

There is no obligation for you to make a claim when you get in touch with us. We are here to listen to your experience, advise on your eligibility to claim and put you in touch with a personal injury solicitor if you decide to proceed.

What are some common causes of kidney injury?

Kidney damage is most commonly caused by overexposure to harmful chemicals over years, not as a direct result of physical trauma. Nevertheless, your kidneys can still be damaged severely because of direct trauma and physical accidents.

Kidney damage can present as kidney failure, stones and cancer. Although rare, misdiagnosis of kidney damage does occur and can leave you with devastating impacts on your life. 

Acute kidney injury (AKI) often happens as a direct result of an accident or long-term exposure to harmful working practices. AKI can prevent a kidney, or both kidneys, from functioning properly and even result in the loss of your kidney. 

If your kidneys have been damaged by any of these causes and it was due to someone else's negligence, we're here for you. We believe you should receive the kidney injury compensation award you deserve.

For more information on kidney injuries because of someone else's negligence and to discuss your unique case with us, request a callback from our team of experts.


Can I claim kidney injury compensation because of workplace negligence?

Accidents at work can be traumatic no matter the injury they cause, and some accidents can have far-reaching impacts on your body and internal organs. If you have suffered an injury at work that resulted in kidney damage or the loss of a kidney, and it wasn't your fault, we don't believe you should suffer financially for it. 

Even if your kidney injury doesn't present itself for some time after your accident, if it was directly or indirectly caused by your accident you could be eligible to make a kidney injury compensation claim.

Claiming against your employer can be intimidating. However, you shouldn't have to worry about claiming if you suffered from workplace negligence. Talk to our team by calling for more information on claiming against your employer.

You can also consult our handy FAQs page before talking to an advisor.


I have suffered the loss of a kidney due to medical negligence - can I make a claim?

Yes, if you have been unfortunate and lost a kidney due to medical negligence, you are likely eligible to claim compensation for the loss of a kidney

Determining if your kidney loss is a result of medical negligence can be difficult. Most kidney losses from medical negligence start with a misdiagnosis that leads to kidney damage or loss. 

Some common misdiagnoses include:

  • Kidney failure misdiagnosis
  • Kidney stone misdiagnosis
  • Kidney cancer misdiagnosis 

If you are unsure whether your kidney loss was a result of medical negligence or misdiagnosis, contact our team of legal experts on or request a callback. We can help you determine who was at fault and advise on your eligibility to claim.


Understandably, you might have reservations about claiming kidney compensation from the NHS - especially if you received care after your misdiagnosis. 

However, if you suffered AKI or lost a kidney due to medical negligence, you shouldn't have to bear the financial burden. 

The NHS is covered by NHS Resolution to cover compensation claims. NHS Resolution works like an insurance provider. Each NHS trust pays insurance premiums to NHS Resolution - much like your car insurance policy - to cover potential claims. 

For more information about how NHS Resolution works, contact our team today on .


How do I determine who was responsible for my kidney injury?

Kidney injuries can result from a wide range of accidents or medical negligence, sometimes making it difficult to determine who is responsible for your injury. 

When making a kidney injury compensation claim, it is important to determine who was at fault. Whether your accident happened at work, during a road traffic accident or as a result of medical negligence, if you have suffered because of someone else's negligent behaviour, you could be eligible to claim.

Our team of personal injury experts have helped many people determine who was at fault for their personal injury. Request a callback at a time that suits you to discuss your kidney compensation case with us.


Why should I make a kidney injury compensation claim?

If you have suffered a kidney injury that you were not responsible for, we don't believe you should be out of pocket for it. Making a compensation claim for kidney damage can help you cover the cost of your medical treatments, adaptations to your life, loss of earnings and more. 

Our team of personal injury experts are here to help. Give us a call on today to discuss your case with us.


Can I make a no win no fee claim for kidney compensation?

Yes, in many circumstances you will be able to make a kidney injury compensation claim under a no win no fee agreement. Most of our personal injury claims are made this way. 

Making a claim using a no win no fee agreement is cost-effective, as long as you have the right insurance in place. If you choose to make a claim this way, we can help you get the insurance coverage you need. 

Unfortunately, it is not always possible to make a no win no fee claim. Your solicitor will advise you whether you can make a no win no fee claim before proceeding with your case, allowing you to decide if it is still right for you and your family to make a claim.


Frequently asked questions...

Yes, you can. If they’re under 18, you’ll need to make the claim on their behalf. This is called being a litigation friend as is usually done by a parent, guardian or other responsible adult. You can also act as a litigation friend if your loved one has been so seriously injured that they are unable to make the claim themselves.

Compensation is always paid by the other side’s insurance company. In a road traffic accident injury claim, this will be their motor insurance company. For an injury at work, it will be employers’ liability insurer used by the firm you work for. For accidents in a public place it will be the public liability insurer of the council, business or landlord deemed legally responsible for your accident injury. This ensures no-one is hit with an unaffordable bill.

Our advice is never accept an early settlement offer from an insurance company without taking legal advice. The amount may well be lower than that to which you’re entitled. 

We’ll check your eligibility to claim and then pair you with one of our approved solicitors if you choose to proceed.
