Pelvis and hip compensation

The most common type of hip injuries for personal injury compensation come from two main areas, road traffic accidents can often cause broken hips and pelvis due to the impact and speeds involved in traffic accidents.

Further to this motorcycle accidents can cause serious injuries including shattered hips and pelvis. Accidents at work or in public places are also a common cause of hips injuries, especially to the elderly. Slips where you fall onto hard surfaces often cause broken bones.

We have also dealt with claims regarding hip replacement surgery from a medical negligence perspective.

No win no fee injury claims

Many of our clients worry about the cost of seeking legal advice for their personal injury claim. The vast majority of cases we work on are taken on a no win no fee basis so there is no financial risk to you. There are other funding options available to you; we will discuss this as part of your free consultation.

If you feel you have a personal injury claim for hip or pelvis injuries the first stage of the claims process is to call us or email us with the details of your claim. We need to know how you were injured, where you were, on the road, at work or in a public place. We’ll also need to know who else was there, either involved in the accident or as a witness. We’ll also need the details of your injuries, any medical diagnosis and the impact that this has had on your life both physically and financially.

Based on the details you tell us we will be able to assess your claim and advise you on how likely it would be for you to be able to claim compensation. If we think you have a valid claim we will also be able to give you an estimated value for the claim and advise you on the next stages in the process.

The advertising world is awash with adverts for “Personal Injury Solicitors” but it is important you choose to work with a genuine expert because increasingly claims are being undervalued, meaning you do not receive the amount of compensation you are entitled to.

Time limits

As with all personal injury claims there are strict time limits imposed on when you can make a claim for hip or pelvis injuries. Usually you have three years from the ‘date of knowledge’; this usually applies when the injury is not immediately apparent. For these reasons it’s important you seek expert legal advice as soon as you know of an issue.
