Who can make a hip or pelvis injury claim?

If you’ve suffered a hip or pelvis injury and it was caused by someone else’s negligence, you could be entitled to make a claim.

The pelvis is made up of two hip bones connecting the spine to the legs, as well as two smaller bones called the sacrum and coccyx. Injuries in the pelvic area can be extremely painful and the recovery period is often long.

Common causes of hip and pelvis injuries include:

We offer a free initial consultation where we’ll listen to the details of your situation and let you know if you have a strong claim – so you have nothing to lose by getting in touch.

Why should I claim for a hip or pelvis injury?

If you were working before your hip or pelvis injury, you may now be facing an extended period off to recover. Or it might not be possible for you to return your previous role at all. This can bring an added layer of financial stress on top of your physical suffering.

Making a claim for compensation could help to relieve some of the financial pressures related to your injuries. And if the individual or organisation responsible admits liability, your solicitor may be able to apply for an interim payment .

This payment will be paid out to you before your case is settled, so you can cover the cost of any immediate expenses such as medical bills, transport to and from hospital and support equipment.

As well as helping you financially, making a claim could also bring you a sense of closure. And by taking legal action, you’ll be shining on a light on the negligence that led to your injuries. So you could be helping to prevent the same thing from happening to anyone else.

How can First4Lawyers help?

Our personal injury solicitors are experienced in claims involving hip and pelvis injuries, and they’ll work on your behalf to secure the best possible outcome for you.

We understand that the prospect of making a claim can feel overwhelming, especially when you’re already dealing with the pain of your injuries. But it’s only right that you get justice for what you’ve been through.

For these types of claims, we work on a No Win No Fee basis. This means there will be no costs to pay upfront and nothing to pay if your claim 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.

Hip and pelvis injury claim FAQs

How much can I claim for a hip or pelvis injury?

There is no set compensation amount for a hip or pelvis injury. This is largely because these types of injuries can vary widely. So someone making a claim for a broken hip will receive a different settlement to someone who has developed osteoarthritis.

As well as taking into account the severity of your injury, your compensation will take into account:

  • The pain and suffering you have endured
  • Adaptations or aids to support your quality of life
  • Changes you may need to make in your work life
  • Medical costs and ongoing treatment
  • Time off work, resulting in a loss of earnings

Your solicitor may also instruct the services of an independent medical expert to find out how your injury could impact you in the future. This will all contribute towards the valuation of your claim.

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

Generally, a hip or pelvis injury claim should be made within three years. This could be three years from the date of an accident or from when you first became aware of your injuries. For example, if you’ve developed a repetitive strain injury over time.

It’s always better to seek legal advice sooner rather than later with these types of claims. Speaking to a solicitor early could mean it’s easier for you to remember the details of what happened. It could also make it easier for your solicitor to gather key evidence like CCTV and witness accounts.

I think I have a claim – what should I do next?

If you’ve suffered a hip or pelvis injury, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Your health should come first, so this should be prioritised before doing anything else.

After you’ve received the care you need, you could then consider making a claim for compensation. Our friendly claims advisors are here to answer any questions you might have about the process. So you’ll have all the information you need to decide if you’d like to go forward.

If we’re able to take on your case, we’ll ask if you’d like to be put in touch with one of our expert solicitors. This will be completely up to you, and we’ll never pressure you into going ahead.
