Soft tissue hip injuries (£3,000 ~ £9,500)
You could be awarded between £3,000 and £9,500 as compensation for suffering soft tissue hip injuries in a slip or fall accident.
Most soft tissue hip injuries will recover within 2 years. Hip injuries that take longer than 2 years and result in some form of permanent disability are classed as moderate or severe hip injuries. The compensation award for moderate and severe hip injuries will exceed the stated values in the brackets. Hip injuries can be sustained in road traffic accidents and slip, trip and fall accidents.
Botched hip replacement surgery (£3,000 ~ £20,200)
You could be awarded between £3,000 and £20,200 as compensation for suffering botched hip replacements due to medical negligence.
In most cases hip replacement surgery will be carried out successfully without any problems. However, things can and sometimes do go wrong. For example, your artificial hip may have been inserted incorrectly, causing friction and making it painful to turn, sit or walk. If you have suffered from a botched hip replacement surgery, then you could be entitled to compensation.
Broken hip (£9,500 ~ £39,900)
You could be awarded between £9,500 and £39,900 as compensation for suffering a broken hip injury in a slip or fall accident.
A hip fracture is more commonly known as a broken hip. This is when your pelvis bone is shattered or cracked. The amount of compensation you can claim for a hip fracture depends on the seriousness of the injury, whether surgery is required and if it has caused you a permanent disability. Elderly people with brittle bones are most likely to suffer hip fractures from falls.
Fracture-dislocation of pelvis (£29,800 ~ £99,500)
You could be awarded between £29,800 and £99,500 as compensation for suffering serious fracture-dislocations of the pelvis in car crash accidents.
A fractured-dislocation is where both a fracture and dislocation occurs. Serious fracture-dislocations of the pelvis can cause spondylolisthesis, sexual dysfunction, permanent disability and hip deformity. Sufferers of this injury will likely undergo extensive surgical repair or hip replacement surgery. In the most serious of cases where the spinal cord or spinal nerves are affected, major surgery such as spinal fusion will be carried out.
