Hernias are a common condition, but they can be incredibly painful. While there are a variety of factors that can cause hernias, some are caused by the negligence of another person. This might be an employer who asked an employee to lift a heavy object without lifting aids, following criminal injuries such as a punch to the stomach, working environments that promote poor posture or accidental poisoning.
Hernias therefore feature in many personal injury compensation claims. These could be hernias that cause prolonged and extensive pain, problems with mobility, inguinal hernias, or uncomplicated indirect hernias.
Technically speaking, a hernia occurs when part of one of your organs or the wall of your organ pushes out from the space in the body that is designed to contain it. Hernias can be either external when the protruding organ part creates a lump on the exterior of your body or internal when the same protrusion is directed inwards into the interior of your body.
Abdomen, stomach or groin
This is perhaps one of the most common types of hernia injury compensation claim. The problem usually develops through a weakness in the lower torso stretching down to the groin which is exacerbated by the strain and pressure of heavy lifting.
Spinal or spinal disc hernia
This is a hernia which affects the spinal discs in your lower spine and can cause significant pressure on the sciatic nerve leading to severe pain the lower back buttocks and legs. There’s also a hernia which affects the lumbar spine, which does not directly affect your discs.
While hernias are commonplace, treating them can be quite difficult and frequently requires invasive surgery, and this can occur many months or years after the condition’s initial diagnosis. As a result, hernias can cause a great deal of harm to a victim’s quality of life. The pain and suffering can continue for a long time, and hernia patients also run the risk of being the victim of clinical negligence. Hernias can also lead to other complications, including strangulation of soft tissue and bowel obstructions.
