A hip injury that has been caused due to an accident or an incident that was no fault of your own can cause huge distress, pain and discomfort. It can impact on your ability to perform everyday tasks, to be able to move around comfortably and it can result in having to take a lengthy period away from work, or even quitting your job in order to fully recover. Hip injury compensation can go a long way to helping you in this difficult time, with the correct diagnosis and investigation into a hip injury leading to the chance to secure maximum hip injury compensation amounts that can support you throughout your recovery.
Each person is different to the next, and at Hampson Hughes our aim is to quickly understand our clients’ individual circumstances and to identify the specific problems they have faced and work out the best way to assist them moving forward. We’ll talk to you in detail about your hip injury and put together a plan of action that ensures your hip injury claim will have the best possible chance to secure compensation that can aid your recovery and help cover the cost of loss of earnings, physical and psychological distress, medical and rehabilitation costs, and any amendments to your house that may be required.
Compensation for a broken hip or other types of hip injuries can vary from person to person, and depend on several factors. Although we would never tell you to expect specific hip injury compensation amounts we can provide you with a general table of compensation amounts awarded for various hip injury claims.
Severity of Hip Injury
Minor Hip Injury
Up to £10,040
Moderate Hip Injury
£10,040 - £41,860
Serious Hip Injury
£49,350 - £104,370
As you can see, there is some variance in compensation amounts, depending on the accident you have suffered, the severity of the injury and the amount of medication and rehabilitation required for your recovery process. For example a hip injury that causes you to miss a month or work will not lead to as much hip injury compensation as an injury that leads to you having to quit work for good.
When you are seeking compensation for a broken hip you might think that you have to act straight away for fear of missing out. It is, of course, better for your case should you get the ball rolling as quickly as possible, whilst all the little details of the incident are fresh in your mind, alongside all supporting evidence. Legally though, you have three years from the date of the accident or incident that led to your injury, to make a hip injury compensation claim. The date the three years begins could also be from the exact date you were told medically that your injuries were as a result of an accident or incident that was not your fault. For those victims under the age of 18 there are two choices. First, their parent or guardian can begin the hip injury claims process, or alternatively the claim can be made within three years of the persons 18th birthday.
The cost of making a hip injury compensation claim might seem prohibitive and a stumbling block at first, but we are here to make sure you have all the help you need. Give our team a call and we can talk through all available funding options for you including any relevant insurance policies that will cover the cost of a legal claim. In the majority of cases we can act for you on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis in the form of a CFA (Conditional Fee Agreement). A CFA ensures that, should your claim for hip injury compensation be unsuccessful, you will not pay a penny towards the associated costs.
The team at Hampson Hughes is ready to help you fight for maximum compensation for a broken hip. We understand how hard it can be to recover from an injury that was no fault of your own, and we are keen to assist you in acquiring suitable rehabilitation, medication and any amendments to your home and everyday life that are required as a result of your injuries.

Kelly claimed £23,000 and changed her life. She started by taking our free 30 second claim test and found out how much compensation she was entitled to.
Fantastic service, the attention to all the details was super impressive. They kept me updated throughout the whole process and got my case solved really quickly. I can't recommend them highly enough!
Great service from start to finish. My solicitor was always happy to explain what was happening and in the end, he got me more compensation than what the insurance company were going to offer me. Glad I used them to look after my claim and I've just had my cheque earlier than expected today!!
