Hip Injury Compensation Claim
Your hip is a ball and socket joint, which consists of the top of the femur (the ball aspect of the joint) and the socket of the pelvic bone. Your hip joint is important to your mobility so becoming the victim of an accident that leaves you with an injury to your hip joint could potentially affect your ability to walk.
Even if your hip injury is mild it could leave you with severely restricted mobility as an injury to your hip, whether minor or severe has the potential to impair your mobility, meaning you will have difficulty walking, which could lead to you being out of work. So not only will you be facing your initial injury but you will also be facing a loss of earnings, which could leave you struggling when it comes to medical expenses.
An injury to your hip can occur due to a number of factors such as the following:
- A workplace injury
- As a result of a slip, trip or fall caused by the negligence of others
- If you are knocked off your motorbike
- In public transport accidents
- In road traffic accidents
- Due to a case of medical negligence
If you experience an injury to your hip due to an accident, such as the ones named above, and the accident was caused due to the negligence of another person or organisation then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation, which is where the experts here at Help With Your Claim come in.
Following an accident that has left you with an injury to your hip you will find it almost impossible to get up or walk; only very occasionally when the bone is cracked rather than being completely broken will you find that walking is possible but even in these cases it is still painful.
One of the most common injuries that occur to your hip is a fracture, which is generally treated with surgery. This surgery is performed as soon as possible after your fracture and involves replacing part of the bone with a metal fitting.
