Pelvic injury claims for compensation

workplace accidents

A pelvic injury can present the injured person with significant pain, discomfort and mobility issues. In the worst cases, they can leave the victim with permanent difficulties, which is why it is important that victims can seek justice where they have come to harm through the fault of someone else. Those who have sustained an injury to their pelvis due to the negligence of another person or a company could be eligible to pursue pelvic injury claims for compensation.

As specialists in injury claims, we have represented thousands of clients who have been injured due to the avoidable negligence of another party. Injuries can be frustrating enough in themselves, so it can feel like an even greater injustice when they are caused through no fault of your own.

We want to empower as many victims as possible to seek the justice they deserve. Anyone who needs expert advice and representation about a potential compensation claim can contact our expert team for free, no-obligation advice on their case.

Possible consequences of pelvic injuries

Whether it is sustained from medical negligence or from a workplace incident, a pelvic injury can cause long-term difficulties for the person whom it affects. In some cases, a pelvic injury is not just about temporarily broken bones, but they can be about bigger injuries that can severely inhibit the function of the body.

Where the impact of the injury is particularly severe, it can cause internal damage to organs such as the bowel or bladder. For some, their injury can lead to permanent disability.

Pelvic injury claims and compensation amounts

Given the potential severity of this type of injury, pelvic injury claims can provide an important means of accessing justice for those affected. If you have been injured due to the negligence of another, perhaps by working in an unsafe environment or by falling victim to clinical negligence, you could be eligible to pursue a legal case.

Your potential compensation amount can often depend on the severity of the injury sustained. The Judicial College Guidelines offer the following recommendations on potential compensation amounts:

  • extensive fractures of the pelvis, with substantial residual disabilities – £62,490 to £104,370;
  • injuries only a little less severe, still involving disabilities – £49,350 to £62,490;
  • fractures requiring surgery, may require hip replacement – £31,220 to £41,860;
  • significant injury to pelvis with minimal permanent disability and low future risk – £21,200 to £31,220;
  • cases potentially involving successful hip replacement or other surgery, the potential for future surgery, or with more than minimal ongoing symptoms – £3,150 to £10,040;
  • cases with little or no residual disability, or with a complete recovery within a few years – £3,150 to £10,040;
  • minor soft tissue injuries with complete recovery – up to £3,150.

Sourced from Judicial College Guidelines.

These guidelines are expanded on in much greater detail, but they can give potential claimants an idea of the compensation they could recover for pelvic injury claims. In addition, claimants may also be eligible to recover Special Damages for the financial impact of their injury. This could involve claiming back lost earnings due to absences from work, any pain medication costs, and the cost of travelling to and from hospital appointments.
