What Should I Do Next?
In order to make a successful claim for a hip or pelvis injury, it is necessary to take the correct steps to ensure your case is handled properly.
The first and most essential action is to speak to a specialist personal injury solicitor as soon as possible. This will give you an opportunity to discuss the specific details of your case with a legal expert and receive advice on the next steps to take. Your legal team will also be able to provide a more comprehensive and accurate estimate of your potential compensation award, based on your personal circumstances.
Once you begin the compensation claims process, your solicitor will make contact with the party responsible for your hip or pelvic injury, before working to collect evidence to demonstrate why you are entitled to claim compensation. This will help to ensure you are able to receive the maximum amount of compensation available to you.
What Can Affect the Value of a Compensation Claim?
If you have suffered a hip or pelvis injury, the amount of compensation you can claim will depend on the severity of the injury itself, as well as the impact it has on your life, finances, and ability to work.
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. The most severe pelvic injuries can even have the same life-changing impact on the victim as losing a leg.
Compensation from making a claim can be helpful by ensuring 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.
How Can Compensation Help?
An injury to your hip or pelvis could be life-changing, leading to months or years of reduced mobility, medical treatment, and suffering. Making a claim can compensate you for that suffering and reimburse you for the costs you have incurred as a direct result of your injury.
The compensation our solicitors can help you secure can cover:
- Loss of past or future earnings
- Rehabilitation and expert medical treatment
- Transport costs
- Equipment and modifications to your home
About Hip and Pelvis Injuries
The hip bones consist of three sections: ilium, ischium, and pubis, while the pelvis refers to the area of the body between the abdomen and 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.
We have helped individuals claim compensation for a variety of injuries and conditions affecting this area of the body, including:
- Hip dysplasia
- Septic arthritis
- Cartilage tears
Hip and Pelvis Fractures
Hip and pelvis fractures can refer to breaks or cracks in the top of the thigh bone, which is 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, while the other 50% require surgery, in which rods, screws or plates are inserted to fix the fracture.
Osteoarthritis is particularly common and often occurs when damage to a joint(s) 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.
