If you have suffered from a hip or pelvis injury that was caused by someone else, you could be entitled to claim for compensation.
At JMW, we know that if you are considering making a hip or pelvis injury claim, you will want to know how much you could claim for your accident.
This compensation calculator helps to answer that question, providing an idea of the average compensation amount for serious, moderate and less severe injuries of this kind. But remember, the figures we provide on this page are just estimates based on case law and judicial college guidelines, and do not take into account any financial losses you may have suffered as a result of your accident. If you want to find out how much you could be entitled to for your specific injury, get in touch with us today.
Injuries to this area of the body can be particularly debilitating, affecting your mobility and potentially causing longer term conditions, such as arthritis. In some cases, you might require a hip replacement in later life as a result of your injury. To read about hip replacement surgery, click here. The most severe pelvic injuries can even have the same life-changing impact on the victim as losing a leg.
That’s why compensation can be so helpful - it ensures you are able to pay for treatment, rehabilitation and equipment you may require as a result of your injury, ensuring you can focus on making a recovery.
What is the pelvis?
The pelvis refers to the area of the body between the abdomen and the thighs. The pelvic skeleton is made up of two hip bones that connect the spine to the legs, as well as two smaller bones called the sacrum and the coccyx.
The hip bones consist of three sections: ilium, ischium and pubis.

Hip and Pelvis Fractures
Fractures in this area of the body can refer to breaks or cracks in the top of the thigh bone, closest to the hip joint, or to any of the bones within the pelvic skeleton.
According to the NHS, in almost 50% of fractures, a hip replacement is required. In the other 50%, surgery is required, in which rods, screws or plates are inserted to fix the fracture.
This condition is particularly common and often occurs when damage to a joint or joints is not fully repaired following an accident. This can lead to the joint losing cartilage, which helps joints to move easily, and the area affected becoming painful and swollen.
If you have been affected by any of the ailments we’ve mentioned above due to someone else’s negligence, get in touch with us today to find out more about making a claim.
