Pelvic and Hip Injury Compensation
Pelvic or hip injuries can be very painful and can be very uncomfortable. The pelvic is located at the base of the spine and its purposes is to transfer weight and energy when walking, running, sitting and so on. Men and women have different pelvic bones but they can be injured just as easily as each other’s and when this happens you can make a compensation claim against the negligent party if they owed you a duty of care, which many people do, for example road users to other road users and doctors to their patients.
Injuries to the pelvic bone can occur in a number of ways from playing sports to a slip, trip or fall. The consequences of a hip or pelvic injury can be severe and could leave the victim in a wheelchair or needing crutches. As a result a victim of a hip injury can make a compensation claim not only for the physical injury but also for any consequential loss which will typically include loss of income, damage to property, travel expenses and medical bills.
