What is a groin injury?

A groin strain is usually a tear or rupture to one of the five adductor muscles that run up your inner thigh, to your pelvis. 

The severity of the injury is assessed in three gradings:

  • Grade 1 is ‘nominal’ discomfort, with minor disruption to mobility and daily activities.
  • Grade 2 is ‘moderate’, with an impact on activities such as running and jumping, as well as day to day mobility.
  • Grade 3 is ‘severe’, often with bruising or swelling. Pain when walking or running is likely this level of injury often requires surgery.

Symptom of a groin strain or injury include:

  • Pain in the inner thigh, hip or knee.
  • A ‘snapping’ sensation during the injury
  • Difficulty walking or running
  • Bruising and swelling.

These symptoms are also present in hip bursitis, sprain and stress fractures of the pelvis – so medical treatment and diagnosis is important.

Groin strains are most often the result of sporting injuries, but can also occur if you’re injured in a car crash, or involved in an accident at work, such as lifting, pulling or carrying heavy objects.

Some groin injuries can lead to inguinal or femoral hernias. A hernia happens when an internal part of the body pushes through an existing tear or strain.

Why should I claim for a groin injury?

Hopefully your injuries will be minor and cause minimal disruption to your life. But if you have sustained  serious damage that requires surgery and time off work to recover, there are many financial pressures to consider.

If your injury is down to someone else’s negligence, you could have a right to a compensation settlement. This can help relieve those financial pressures, such as surgery, medical costs, recuperation, prescriptions, travel to hospital and loss of earnings.

How can First4Lawyers help?

We are here to take the pressure off you. Our advisors will go through what has happened with you, free of charge, then assess whether you are likely to have a claim.

If you choose to proceed, we allocate a specialist solicitor to deal with your claim for you. We offer a No Win No Fee service, so you don't have to pay for anything in advance – and if the claim is not successful, you don't pay at all.

Only pay a fee if you receive compensation

Our No Win No Fee solicitors will take a success fee from the compensation you are awarded for a successful claim in the form of a percentage of your damages. This could be up to 25% but it won't be more than that, except in cases of road traffic accidents. Changing laws mean our solicitors will now take a payment of 30% of the final compensation amount plus VAT for all road traffic accident claims.

First4Lawyers are an award-winning claims management company with a track record of delivering service that our clients love.

How much compensation can I claim for a groin injury?

The amount of groin injury compensation really depends on the individual circumstances surrounding the accident. Taken into consideration are factors like:

  • The pain and suffering you have endured, as well as any continuation into the future
  • Time off work, resulting in loss of earnings
  • Suitability to carry on performing your job
  • Changes you may need to make in your work life
  • Medical costs and ongoing treatment
  • Adaptations or aids that you may need

Is there a time limit for making a groin injury claim?

Generally, a claim must be brought within three years of the injury, but our specialist advisors can explain the process to you in more detail, with no legal jargon or pressure.
