What is a groin injury claim?

Groin injuries happen when the adductor muscles in the upper thighs are strained or torn. They’re often caused by sharp movements, but they can also happen as a result of direct blows to the upper thigh area.

If you’ve suffered a groin injury and it was someone else’s fault, you could have grounds to make a claim. This might apply if you were injured in a sporting accident, or:

It’s not as common, but groin injuries can also be caused by medical negligence. This can happen as a result of surgical errors or a delayed diagnosis.

If you think you could have a groin injury claim, get in touch with our legal services team. We offer a free no-obligation consultation, so you’ll have nothing to lose by giving us a call.

Why should I claim for a groin injury?

Groin injuries can leave you in a significant amount of pain. In the most severe cases, a groin injury can be felt from the lower torso all the way down to the knee. This can make it extremely difficult to carry out day-to-day tasks, socialise with friends and go to work.

Many people will need to take time off work to recover, and this can add another layer of financial stress – especially if you’re also paying out for further medical treatment like physiotherapy. Making a claim won’t undo what happened, but it could help to take away some of your money worries.

If the party responsible for your injury accepts liability, your solicitor could apply for interim payments. These will be paid to you before your case settles, so you’ll be able to cover any immediate expenses like medical bills or the cost of transport to and from hospital appointments.

Making a claim will also shine a light on the negligence that led to your injuries, which could help to ensure that improvements are made so no one else suffers from a similar incident.

How can First4Lawyers help?

We work with experienced personal injury solicitors who will work on your behalf to get the best possible outcome for your claim. So you can focus on your recovery.

Our solicitors understand that the thought of making a claim can be daunting, especially when you’re already dealing with the pain of your injury. But our goal is to help you get the compensation you deserve, with as little stress involved as possible.

For these types of claims, we work on a No Win No Fee basis. That means there will be nothing for you to pay upfront and no legal fees for you to cover if your case is unsuccessful.

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 and housing disrepair. Changing laws mean our solicitors will now take a payment of 35% of the final compensation amount plus VAT for all road traffic accident and housing disrepair claims.

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

Groin injury claim FAQs

How much compensation can I claim for a groin injury?

The amount of groin injury compensation you receive will depend on the severity of your case. But if your claim is successful, your settlement will take into account factors such as:

  • The pain and suffering you’ve endured
  • Any adaptations or specialist equipment you need
  • Changes you may need to make in your work life
  • Medical costs and ongoing treatment
  • Time off work resulting in lost earnings

Your solicitor will be able to give a more accurate valuation of how much your claim could be worth after speaking to you. But for an estimate of how much compensation you could receive, try our free compensation calculator.

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

You’ll usually have three years to make a groin injury claim. This could be three years from the date of your accident or from when you first became aware of your injuries.

For example, if your injury was caused by a surgical error, you may not realise until seeing another medical professional. In these cases, the time limit would only start from what’s known as your ‘date of knowledge’.

Three years may sound like a long time, but we would always suggest seeking legal advice early. This is because it will likely be easier for your solicitor to gather key evidence such as medical records, CCTV or witness testimonies. It may also be easier for you to remember what happened.

I’ve suffered a groin injury – what should I do?
