Hip Injury Compensation Claims

If you’ve suffered a hip injury, we’re here to help. Our hip injury claims solicitors understand how painful a hip injury can be, and how any loss of mobility can affect your life. We’ll strive to secure you the best compensation possible, helping to get your life back on track.

How To Make A Hip Injury Claim

Call our personal injury team today on 0800 056 4110 for your free initial consultation. We’ll ask you some questions about how your injury happened, who you believe is responsible, and how your life has changed as a result.

If we think you have a claim, we’ll approach the person or organisation you believe is at fault. If they accept responsibility, we’ll negotiate a compensation settlement for you that takes into account your pain, suffering and the impact on your life.

If we think you have a claim but the other party doesn’t admit responsibility, we’ll still fight for compensation for you – all the way to court if necessary.

Hip injuries may occur for many reasons, from road traffic accidents to repetitive strain injury. We can help you with hip injury claims for:

  • Breaks, fractures and dislocations
  • Fractured pelvis
  • Bursitis
  • Hip dysplasia 
  • Osteoarthritis arising from hip injuries.

In the most serious cases, breaks and fractures may result in hip replacement surgery. We can help you to fund ongoing treatment costs with interim compensation payments and guide you through the rehabilitation process.

How Long Do You Have To Make A Hip Injury Claim?

Generally speaking, you have three years from the date of the injury, or the date you realised your hip was injured, (for example, if a doctor diagnosed a repetitive strain injury) to make a claim. There are exceptions to this, for example you may have less time to make a claim if you were injured overseas or in a criminal assault.

Get in touch with us as soon as possible and we’ll talk you through the time limits that apply in your case.

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Hip Injury?

There are no set compensation amounts for hip injuries as every single case has different circumstances. Your final settlement will be based on a number of factors, including:

  • Your physical pain
  • The severity of the damage
  • Loss of earnings
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Surgery such as hip replacement.

Hip injuries can be extremely painful and may need many trips to see medical professionals. In addition to compensation, we can also arrange interim compensation payments where applicable.

No Win No Fee Hip Injury Claims

Most of our hip injury claims are ‘no win, no fee’. This means that yours and your opponent’s legal fees are covered if you’re unsuccessful*. If you’re successful, your opponent will pay a significant portion of your legal costs. Any costs not paid by your opponent will be taken from your compensation.

Why Choose Us?

We understand how debilitating hip injuries can be, from loss of earnings to no longer being able to enjoy your favourite activities. With our decades of personal injury experience, we can guide you through the whole claims process.

We have leading legal experts up and down the country who have processed hundreds of claims just like yours, from broken hip compensation to osteoarthritic complications. If needed, our client liaison teams can also help you get access to rehabilitation and sort out interim compensation payments to make life easier for you at every stage of the recovery process.

Hip Injury Compensation Claims - More Information
    • What If I Don't qualify for no win no fee?
    • If your case doesn’t meet the no win, no fee criteria, there may be other options available to you.

      You may have Legal Expenses Insurance on your home insurance policy, for example, or you may be a member of a trade union which covers legal expenses. We’ll discuss the best options for you during your initial consultation. 

    • Who Will pay my compensation?
    • Workplace hip injuries may occur if your employer hasn’t provided the right manual handling training or the means to help you carry heavy loads. Equally, repetitive strain from your job may lead to hip injuries. In these cases, your employer’s insurance will cover the cost of your claim.

      If you were injured in a road traffic accident, motor insurance policies will cover the costs. For accidents that happened in a public place, these costs will be covered by that organisation’s insurance, for example, a local council.

      For criminal assault claims, the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) will pay out if the person who assaulted you doesn’t have the means to pay.

    • Are there exceptions to the three-year time limit?
    • Adults can make claims for children up until their 18th birthday. If they reach 18 and a claim hasn’t been made for them, they can make their own claim up until their 21st birthday.

      There’s no time limit to make claims on behalf of people who lack the mental capacity to make a claim themselves.

      If your claim relates to a criminal assault, generally the limit is two years. However, this can be extended in some circumstances, for example if you were too ill to claim.

      If you were injured by a faulty product, you’ll have 10 years from the product launch date to make a claim.

      Finally, if the injury happened abroad, the time limit may be shorter. We can advise you on specific regions.

      Regardless of the circumstances of your injury, get in touch with us as soon as possible. The earlier you contact us, the easier it is for us to gather evidence to support your claim. 

    • What are interim compensation payments?
    • Where applicable, interim compensation payments cover ongoing costs while you recover from your hip injury, for example, travel expenses to and from hospital. These funds are awarded before your final settlement and will be deducted from your final compensation amount. We’ll let you know if we think you will benefit from interim compensation payments.

    • what if my opponent doesn't accept responsibility?
    • We always try to negotiate an out-of-court settlement for you as this is generally less stressful for all parties, particularly during difficult recovery periods. If your opponent denies responsibility or disagrees with the proposed settlement, we’ll begin court proceedings.

      Often, even when trial dates have been set, claims are settled before reaching court. If it does go to court, we’ll guide you through every step.

It was incredible, impressive and comforting how each member of the team was there to support us at different times."
