Types of hip and pelvis injury

The pelvis 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. The hip bones consist of the ilium, ischium and pubis. 

Hip and pelvic injuries can happen at any age but are particularly common in older age groups. Causes can include:

Probably the most serious form of hip injury is a fractured or broken hip, which can result in long-term immobility and time off work. Other types of injury include:

  • Fractured pelvis
  • Dislocated hip
  • Osteoarthritis – can occur if an injury is not repaired or doesn’t heal properly
  • Hip bursitis – an inflammation of the fluid sack between the hip and pelvis
  • Hip strain or sprain – caused by muscle and ligament tears

Why should I claim for a pelvis or hip injury?

Hopefully your injuries will be short-lived and you will recover fully. But if you have sustained serious damage that requires surgery and long-term recovery or even disability, there are many financial pressures to consider.

If your injury is due to the fault of someone else, claiming a compensation settlement can help relieve those financial pressures, such as surgery, medical costs, recuperation, prescriptions, travel to hospital, loss of earnings and any support equipment you might need. 

If your hip or pelvic injury was due to an accident at work, making a claim against your employer can also help to make sure any problems are addressed in order to protect other colleagues.

How can First4Lawyers help?

We are here to take the stress out of the situation. Our fully-qualified advisers will talk through your case with you, free of charge. They can advise whether you are likely to have a claim, and allocate a specialist solicitor to deal with your claim for you.

Our specialist solicitors 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

Where we offer No Win No Fee services typically customers pay 25% of the amount recovered by our solicitors, although this will be subject to your individual circumstances and the actual fee may be less than this but it will never be more. Success fees are common practice and they were introduced when the law changed in April 2013.

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 pelvic or hip injury?

The amount of hip injury compensation depends on your individual case. Settlement takes into consideration your particular circumstances, including:

  • 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.

Our compensation calculator gives an indication of, for example, average settlements for a broken hip or pelvic injury compensation.

Is there a time limit for making a hip or pelvic injury claim?

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