What Types of Injuries Can Your Hip Sustain?
There are many types of hip injuries that can occur, ranging from minor to severe. Some of the most common hip injuries include:
- Dislocation: This occurs when the ball at the top of the thigh-bone (femur) pops out of its socket in the hip bone. Dislocations are usually caused by a fall or direct blow to the hip.
- Fracture: A fracture can occur in any bone in the hip, but is most commonly seen in the femur. A fracture can be caused by a direct blow to the bone, a fall, or other trauma.
- Labral tear: The labrum is a ring of cartilage that surrounds the socket of the hip joint. A tear can occur in this cartilage, which can lead to pain and instability in the joint. Labral tears are often seen in athletes who participate in high-impact sports.
How do You Claim Hip Injury Compensation?
If you have suffered a hip injury that wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to compensation. Accidents at work, road traffic accidents and slips, trips and falls are all common causes of hip injuries. If your accident happened within the last three years and someone else was to blame, then you could make a claim.
The first step is to get in touch with our personal injury team, who can advise you on whether you have a valid claim. If they believe you do have a case, they will help you gather the evidence you need to support your claim. This could include medical records, witness statements and CCTV footage.
Your solicitor** will then negotiate with the other party’s insurers on your behalf to try to reach an out-of-court settlement. If this isn’t possible, then your case will go to court.
When making a claim, you could receive compensation for both the physical and psychological effects of your injury. You may also be able to claim back any financial losses you have incurred as a result of your accident, such as loss of earnings or medical expenses.

How Long do I Have to Claim Accident Compensation?
If you’ve been injured in an accident, you may be wondering how long you have to file a claim for compensation. The answer to this question depends on a number of factors, including the type of accident, whether the injured party was a child, and when you became aware of the injury – typical with industrial diseases. In general, however, there is a 3-year time-limit. So you’ll want to file a claim as soon as possible after the accident.
The sooner you file a claim, the easier it will be to collect evidence and build a strong case. If you wait too long, witnesses may forget what they saw, and evidence may be lost or destroyed. So if you’ve been injured in an accident, don’t wait – contact our personal injury solicitors** today to discuss your case.
