Hip injuries can be severe, resulting in low back injuries or hip replacements. If you have suffered a hip injury that wasn't your fault in the last three years, our personal injury solicitors may be able to help you make a claim.
Awards depend on the severity of the hip injury and residual damage. An injury that results in, say, spondylolisthesis of a back joint with high pain levels, will attract a higher award than an injury resulting in a successful hip replacement.
Other factors taken into consideration in your personal injury claim are disability, pain level and permanency of the hip injury.
The hip compensation figures below are for information only based on official guidelines in Scotland and you should remember that the value you obtain for your hip injury claim will largely be determined by the quality and skill of your solicitor in addition to other factors specific to your case such as loss of wages.
Extensive fractures involving residual disability: £29,800 - £99,500
Significant hip injury but no/minor permanent disability: £3,000- £29,800
Minor injury with complete recovery up to £3000
Extensive fractures of the pelvis: £29,800 - £99,500
Less serious pelvic injuries: £9,575 and £29,800
