Pelvic and Hip Injury Claims
If you have been injured in the last three years, and it wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation. The amount you are able to claim depends on the type and severity of your injury. Personal Injury Claims Aberdeen can help you get the compensation you are entitled to. Our compensation guide outlines the levels of compensation for some of the most common types of injury.
Pelvic and Hip Injuries Compensation
Injuries to the pelvis and hips can be as serious and debilitating as losing a leg entirely. As such, they attract similar levels of compensation.
Severe pelvis injuries
£51,500 – £86,000
Extensive fractures of the pelvis coupled with other injuries such as dislocation of the lower back joint, a ruptured bladder or other associated injury which necessitates spinal fusion. These injuries are normally associated with residual disability. There may also be a lack of bladder control, loss of sexual function and perhaps difficulty in giving birth.
£40,650 – £51,500
Injuries of a less severe nature than above, but which are markedly worse than those below.
£27,750 – £34,500
This bracket is normally composed of injuries which may result in a hip replacement now or in the future. Again, this is a wide category.
Moderate Hip Injuries
£17,500 – £25,750
Significant injury but without any permanent disability and little or no future risk of surgery etc.
£8,250 – £17,500
Injuries involving hip replacement. Those near the top of the bracket will be cases in which there has been a successful hip replacement, or where hip replacement will be necessary in the near future.
Up to £8,250
Cases involving significant injury but from which there is complete recovery and no residual disability.
