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 from 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 an 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.
Hip injury compensation can be awarded for a fair number of different hip injuries. We have helped hip injury claims for the following:
Fractured Pelvis – The most severe of hip fractures, leading to a long rehabilitation process, medical treatment and potentially life-changing effects.
Muscle and Ligament Tears – A hip strain that can cause weeks of pain, bruising and swelling in the hip area.
Hip Dislocation – A very painful injury when the joint pops out of the socket. Hospital treatment is always required, as well as potential loss of feeling in the feet.
Hip Bursitis – Infection of the bursa (fluid sack between leg and pelvis) can lead to pain and swelling in the hip.
Poorly performed hip replacements – Where a medical procedure has not been completed correctly and lasting pain and/or damage has been sustained as a result of possible medical negligence.
There are a few instances where you may feel like you have a case to make hip injury claims. These can include:
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, should your claim for hip injury compensation be unsuccessful, you will not pay a penny towards associated costs.
