Hip and pelvis injuries
Hip and pelvis injury claims
Injuries to your hip or pelvic area can be painful, and make it difficult to continue about your day. Performing simple activities such as walking or climbing the stairs can be a nightmare, and it may hinder your ability to do your job properly. These types of injuries may also prevent you from taking part in your favourite sports, or from socialising with your loved ones.
Hip and pelvis injuries most commonly occur in road traffic accidents, but can also happen in the workplace or as a result of a traumatic fall. Whatever the cause of your injury, it makes your daily life much more difficult.
Often with these types of injuries, you may find it hard to put any weight on the affected area, or to move as freely as you usually can, if at all. You may be experiencing severe joint or bone pain, all of which hinder you in the goings-on of your daily routine.
Having a hip or pelvic injury may mean that you need to take time off of work, which can result in a loss of earnings for you and your family. If the injury was not your fault, and perhaps due to the negligence of others, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
This is where we come in.
If your injury occurred within the last three years, you should contact a personal injury solicitor. At Watermans, we have a team of skilled personal injury solicitors who are ready to assist in achieving the best result for you.
We understand that pursuing a compensation claim can be daunting, be we are here to take the hassle out of it for you.
Making a claim
How do I make a hip and pelvis injury claim?
Hip and pelvis injuries can have many consequences, but you may find that it is your mobility that is greatly affected. A stiff and sore pelvic area may mean that you are not sleeping properly, and that you are unable to carry out any of your daily tasks.
A decrease in your movement abilities may also mean that you face a loss of earnings during your injury period, as you are unable to work. This reduction in income can cause unnecessary stress in a time when you should be concentrating on healing physically.
If your injuries were inflicted because of someone else’s negligence within the last three years, you should speak to one of our dedicated personal injury solicitors. Our solicitors care about our clients, and we will do all we can to pursue a compensation claim for your injuries.
At Watermans, we operate a no win no fee policy, meaning that if we don’t win your case, you don’t have to pay any solicitors fees. Speak to one of our solicitors today, to help you to begin your claim process.
How much compensation?
How much compensation for a hip and pelvis injury?
Like most personal injury claims, the amount of compensation you could receive for your hip or pelvis injury is largely dependent on the circumstances in which the accident occurred, and the severity of the injuries.
Any loss of present or future earnings will be taken into account, as well as any other undue medical or travel expenses.
