Do you require an experienced and diligent solicitor to help you claim for a hip injury?

 

If you've suffered a hip injury in an accident that wasn't your fault, you may be able to claim compensation. Injuries sustained to the hips can be extremely serious, often causing severe pain and prolonged disability.

If your injury was the result of someone else's negligence, you could receive a financial sum as compensation for your suffering. To find out more about making a claim, contact PSR Solicitors today.

All our cases are held on a No-Win, No-Fee basis, and our team of advisors and expert legal professionals work together to make the claim process as smooth and as easy as possible for our clients.

Any damage sustained to the hip joints and the connected pelvic area can have severe ramifications, both in the short-term, and the long-term. Immediate injuries such as fractures can lead to chronic conditions such as arthritis.

After the accident, carrying out day-to-day tasks such as walking and going to work may be extremely difficult, if not impossible, and a stay in hospital may be required. Here at PSR, our team of tenacious personal injury solicitors have successfully helped thousands of clients claim the compensation they deserve for hip injuries.

Based in the North West, our solicitors have represented clients throughout the UK, and we've become renowned for our dedication, perseverance, and unwavering customer loyalty. While we know that the compensation payouts our clients receive will not undo the pain and suffering they've been forced to endure, we know that they can  help to significantly ease some of the financial burdens that often accompany hip injuries.

Whether you've been injured in a public place, in a workplace accident, or in a road traffic accident, call us today for a confidential chat with one of our friendly advisors.

We'll listen as you speak to us about what's happened and offer open, honest and straightforward advice about what your next steps could be. We'll answer your questions candidly and transparently, and, if you're eligible, help you to begin your claim.

Whether you're looking to begin your claim or just to speak to a legal advisor about your experiences, contact us now.

Accidents Causing Hip Injuries

Hip injuries are serious injuries that are usually caused by accidents, many of which occur because of another person’s negligence. Here we have listed some of the common causes of hip injuries, but the list isn’t exhaustive.

Whether you’ve been injured in a slip, a trip, a fall in work, or in some other way, we want to hear your story. Contact PSR Solicitors today to find out if you could claim compensation.

Slips, trips and falls

Slips, trips and falls are common causes of hip injuries. You may be able to claim compensation if you slipped, tripped or fell in a public place, such as a supermarket, if it can be shown that the owner of the establishment or their staff failed to mitigate the risk. Slipping on spilled water on a shop floor is a common cause of hip injuries.

If staff failed to clean the spillage or neglected to sign-post it, they could be responsible for your slip. Trip and fall hazards should also be monitored and mitigated by those in charge. For example, hip-injury victims who fell down public staircases may be able to claim compensation if the staircase was in a state of dangerous disrepair.

Similarly, in the case of trips over pavements, councils may be found to have acted negligently if it can be shown that they failed to maintain the pavement. If you’ve suffered a hip-injury in a slip, trip or fall of any description, in any setting, contact PSR Solicitors today.

Road Traffic Accidents

Hip injuries are often the result of extreme force being placed on the hips and surrounding area. As such, they frequently occur as a result of road traffic accidents. While some road users, such as pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists, are particularly vulnerable to sustaining hip injuries, car users and passengers can also suffer debilitating injuries as a result of road traffic accidents.

In many cases, road traffic accident victims sustain a number of painful and debilitating injuries, all of which should be considered in a compensation claim. If you’ve been injured in a road traffic accident, we encourage you to have a confidential chat with one of our friendly advisors so that we can provide you with the best legal advice possible.

Accidents at Work

In some cases, hip injuries are caused by work-place accidents, such as falling from height, or being hit by a piece of workplace machinery, such as in a forklift truck accident. Falling from height onto a hard surface can cause extensive damage to the pelvic area, while the force from a machinery collision can cause serious damage. Employers have a duty of care to protect the safety of their workers.

Employees who have been injured at work may be able to claim compensation if it can be shown that their employer failed to adequately protect their safety, perhaps by not providing adequate PPE, or by not giving enough training on how to safely operate machines.

Here at PSR, we have helped thousands of clients successfully lodge personal injury claims against their employers, but we know that the process can be stressful. You may have worries about how you will be treated by your employer during the claim, or about what the personal repercussions for you will be.

To help make the process as easy as possible, we’ll liaise with your employer on your behalf, and provide legal assistance so that you know where you stand and how to protect your rights.

Common Types of Injuries

Below is a list of some common types of hip injuries, but the list is not exhaustive. Due to the complex nature of the joints, hip injuries are often extremely complicated, affecting a number of bones and tissues.

If you've suffered a hip injury in an accident that wasn't your fault, we strongly encourage you to speak confidentially to one of our approachable advisors.

Fractured Pelvis

Pelvic fractures are breaks to one or more of the bones that make up the pelvic structure. The pain caused by the breaks can be excruciating, and victims are often unable to walk. While some fractures can heal with minimal medical supervision and rest, many require surgery and physiotherapy.

Depending on the type and position of the break, additional damage to the nerves may occur. A fractured pelvis is an uncommon fracture. Due to the force that is required to break this part of the body, these injuries typically only occur because of slips, trips and falls.

If you’ve suffered a fractured pelvis because of an accident that wasn’t your fault, contact us today to find out more about the compensation you could claim.

Dislocated Hips

The hips are two ball-and-socket joints. Dislocation occurs when the ball-shaped joint comes out of the socket.

Hospitalisation is usually required to reset the joint, and the procedures involved are often very painful. The force required to dislocate a hip joint is immense and, as such, these injuries are commonly seen in victims of collisions and other high-impact accidents.

Muscle and Ligament Tears

The hip joints are held in place by a strong web of ligaments, tendons, and other tissues. Injuries sustained to the hip can cause serious soft-tissue injuries, such as strains and tears. Hip strain occurs when the ligaments and muscles surrounding the hip are forced to over-extend or contract too quickly.

This can be caused by overstretching, such as when the body is jolted during a trip, slip or fall, or because of a high-impact collision, perhaps in a road traffic accident. Such injuries can be extremely serious, and victims may be eligible to claim compensation.

Contact us today to discuss how you could claim compensation for your soft-tissue hip injury.

Hip Bursitis

Throughout the body, fluid-filled sacs called bursae act as cushions. They sit between the joints, helping to absorb pressure, and reduce friction so that movement can occur freely and painlessly.

Hip bursitis is a painful condition in which the bursae around the hip joints becomes inflamed. While this condition can occur naturally, it can also manifest as a secondary effect of another injury.

For this reason, if you’ve suffered a hip injury and have developed bursitis, you could claim compensation for both.

Making a Hip Injury Compensation Claim

If you have suffered a hip injury through no fault of your own and you feel there is evidence of 3rd party liability, then you are entitled to try and make a hip injury compensation claim.

By employing the services of one of PSR's qualified personal injury lawyers, you can rest assured that you have secured the legal expertise and experience to win your claim and receive the maximum compensation that you and your family deserve.

In the unlikely event that your claim is unsuccessful, our No Win No Fee promise offers you the peace of mind that there will be no legal costs to pay, meaning no risk to you.
