When you suffer a thigh injury, you may struggle to move around and may have to rely on crutches or other walking aids for a period of time, particularly if your leg is in plaster. This can be very disruptive to your life and you may well find that you cannot do the simple things you once did, for example, go to work, play sports or go to the shops.

Compensation helps you return to the position you were in before your accident. That’s because the final amount of compensation you receive when you’ve made a claim not only provides compensation for the pain and suffering caused by the accident, but also the required changes to your lifestyle and any financial expenses you’ve had as a result of the accident.

Those who are left with ongoing pain and disability, such as walking with an irregular gait are likely to receive a higher sum of compensation when compared to those who make a full recovery.

Our solicitors can give you a clear idea of how much compensation you will be entitled to for your thigh injury. To speak to a lawyer, contact us on 0800 054 6570 or fill in our online enquiry form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Types of Thigh Injuries

A thigh injury involves damage to either the femur bone or the soft tissue that surrounds it; the tendons, ligaments and muscles. A couple of common types of thigh injuries are:

Femur Damage

Damage to the femur - the large bone that runs through the thigh - usually results from significant trauma, such as a crush injury or road traffic collision. A fractured femur requires a lot of time to heal and your leg may have to be put in a plaster cast, which can prevent you from undertaking a great number of everyday tasks, such as household chores, driving and sporting hobbies. It may even mean you are temporarily unable to work.

Hamstring Injury

An injury to your hamstring is likely to be caused by a sporting accident or a slip, trip or fall. These tendons play a crucial role in your ability to move, so damage to this part of the body is naturally going to be disruptive and cause you difficulty when trying to mobilise. Injuries differ in severity, which dictates how long a recovery will take. For example, a tear in the muscle in your hamstring can take months to heal, while a strain may only take a couple of weeks.

Of course, there are many other types of thigh injuries that may happen to someone as a result of the negligence of another party, such as torn ligaments, damaged muscles and various soft tissue injuries. You are able to claim for any of these injuries, and if you do have queries ahead of making a claim, our team will be happy to answer them. Making a claim for compensation is stress free, and ensures you have the peace of mind to be able to focus your energies on getting better.

How Compensation Can Help You

Due to the often lengthy recovery time for thigh injuries and the impact they can have on your life, it is important that you speak to our solicitors about making a claim for compensation. This can help ensure you have everything you need to make a full recovery. As well as securing you recompense for the pain and suffering caused by the accident, your claim will ensure you are able to meet any financial losses you’ve suffered as a result of your injury, such as:

  • Any required medical and rehabilitation treatment
  • Equipment and modifications to your home
  • Travel expenses incurred as a result of your injury
  • Any time you may need to take off work
