Pelvic and Hip Injuries
The most common cause of pelvic / hip injuries is a slip, trip or fall, often caused by something simple such as tripping on a lose cable whilst at work, slipping on a spillage in the supermarket or falling off a ladder. If you have injured your hip in an accident that was not your fault then you could be entitled to make a compensation claim against the party that was responsible for the accident (i.e. the supermarket, your employer etc) as your hip injury is a result of their negligence and because they have a duty of care towards your health and safety.
Pelvic/Hip Injury Claims Solicitors
The amount of compensation you can claim following an injury to your hip will depend on the seriousness of the injury, whether you were at all responsible for the accident (and if so how much), the amount that has been awarded in previously decided cases and government guidelines. In addition to compensation for the physical injury you can also make a claim for all the expenses that you have incurred as a direct result of the accident or injury. This could include anything from medical bills and travel expenses to damage to property and loss of income.
If you would like to make a claim then you should speak to one of our personal injury solicitors** in Sheffield within three years of the date of the accident that resulted in the injury. Any claim brought outside of this time period will be statute barred under the Limitation Act 1980. This means that a claim cannot be brought outside of the three years unless you have special permission from the courts which will only be granted in very limited circumstances.
