Pelvis Damage & Hip Injury Claims, Northern Ireland

A hip injury or pelvis damage can severely limit your movement and stop you from doing many everyday activities at home, at work and while out and about. We understand the pain and frustration you may be feeling as a result.

These types of hip injuries are unfortunately fairly common in Northern Ireland and the UK. We’ve helped many people in your position to claim hip injury compensation to fund their recovery. We’re ready to support you in securing a payout that will help you to get your life back on track.

Common Causes of Hip Injuries

There are many different causes of hip and pelvic injuries. If a hip injury is caused by someone else’s actions or negligence, you may be eligible for compensation. Some of the common causes of hip injuries that result in claims include:

Slips, Trips & Falls

  • Slipping on wet floors in a restaurant, shop or another business
  • Tripping over uneven paving or flooring, or another obstacle

Accidents at Work

  • Falling from height or being struck by an object because your employer didn’t provide the correct protective equipment
  • A slip, trip or fall caused by spillages, uneven flooring or loose wires due to inadequate risk assessments

Road Traffic Accidents

  • Hip dislocation from the impact of a car accident
  • Fracturing or dislocating your hip as a pedestrian, cyclist or motorcyclist involved in an accident

Hip Injuries Caused by Medical Negligence

Types of Hip Injuries

There are various types of hip injuries. Many of them cause pain, stiffness, grinding, numbness and problems walking. Some of the most common types of hip injuries are:

Hip Osteoarthritis – Wear and tear of the hip joint that causes pain, stiffness and reduced movement.

Hip & Pelvis Fractures – A break or crack in the femur causing severe pain and mobility problems.

Ligament & Muscle Tears – Hip strains and sprains from overstretching, impact or overuse, causing pain, swelling, instability and the risk of more severe injuries.

Dislocated Hip Injuries – When the femur is forced out of its socket causing a serious medical emergency, intense pain and difficulty walking.

Hip Bursitis – Swelling or inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs — bursae — around the hip joints.

Hip Replacement Injuries – Infections, blood clots, fractures, uneven leg lengths, dislocation and joint loosening caused by hip replacements.

Hip Injury Claim Eligibility

Anyone who has suffered a hip injury due to someone else’s negligence and through no fault of their own can make a hip injury claim in Northern Ireland. You can claim for yourself or on behalf of a loved one:

Claiming for Yourself – If somebody’s actions or negligence caused your hip injury, you’re eligible to claim.

Claiming on Behalf of Someone Else – If your child aged under 18 or a loved one who doesn’t have the mental capacity to make a claim sustained a hip injury through no fault of their own, you can make a claim for them.

Hip Injury Claim Time Limits

Hip Injury Compensation

When you’re suffering the pain and inconvenience of a hip injury or pelvis damage, hip injury compensation can help you to alleviate or manage those difficulties. Compensation can be used to fund treatments and other improvements that contribute to your recovery and future wellbeing.

Your payout will be split into two separate types of compensation: general damages and special damages.

General Damages – Compensation for the pain and suffering caused by your hip injury, plus its impact on your quality of life.

Special Damages – Compensation for the financial impact of your hip injury. This includes things like loss of earnings, medical bills, travel expenses and changes to your home.

Hip Injury Compensation Amounts in Northern Ireland

The amount of compensation you get for a hip injury will depend on the seriousness of the injury. Some typical hip injury compensation amounts in Northern Ireland are:

  • Minor hip injuries: Up to £25,000
  • Hip injuries with no future risk: £30,000 – £70,000
  • Less complicated hip fractures: £60,000 – £100,000
  • Less serious hip fractures: £75,000 – £135,000
  • Extensive hip fractures: £110,000 – £185,000

Frequently Asked Questions

You could expect to receive between £60,000 and £185,000 in compensation for a broken pelvis in Northern Ireland. This is only a guideline — the final figure will vary depending on the seriousness of the break or fracture — and doesn’t include any special damages you could be entitled to claim. Please get in touch to discuss your claim for a more precise compensation estimate.

That will depend on how much longer the leg is. A difference of 2cm or less is considered normal after a hip replacement. Differences of more than 2cm could be the result of medical negligence. Please get in touch to discuss your claim.
Simple hip injury claims in which the other party accepts liability can be settled in as little as six months. When liability is disputed or you’ve suffered a very serious hip injury, it may take a lot longer to reach a settlement. If your hip injury claim is likely to take longer to settle we will seek an interim payment of compensation so that you don’t suffer unnecessarily.
No Win, No Fee hip injury claims are not allowed under the law in Northern Ireland. Instead, we offer free legal advice on your claim during an initial consultation. We will also be able to discuss fees and explore options such as reclaiming all of your legal costs from the person responsible for your hip injury.

      I approached Reid Black Solicitors having known Hamill Clawson for many years as a good dependable lawyer and having been badly let down and grossly overcharged by another solicitor. He referred me to his colleague, David French who was very approachable and went out of his way to help resolve matters equitably in a timely and stress free manner.As a busy professional, this invaluable advice from Hamill and, especially his partner David was greatly appreciated. I am impressed by the high standard of service offered by this Firm and would recommended their services without caveat.read more

      What a fantastic group of people to work with from start to finish. I thoroughly endorse this firm of solicitors to any former service personnel who have suffered hearing loss and/or tinnitus as a result of live firing in pipe ranges in Northern Ireland. These guys acted on my behalf following a simple hearing assessment and secured a sizeable settlement from the MoD for me. They did not take ANY of my compensation in payment, but claim a separate payment directly from the MoD for their work. David even declined an initial derisory offer from the MoD and secured a much better one which was 500% (yes 500%) above the original offer. If you or you know anyone who suffers the same problems, I would urge you to get in touch with David French or one of his colleagues at Reid Black solicitors. The only downside is the amount of time you have to wait for the MoD to play ball. On the plus side you’ll probably forget you’ve claimed at all and so it’s a great surprise when you finally get a result!read more

      I am absolutely delighted at the result David French and the whole team at Reid Black managed to negotiate for my hearing loss claim. It was a long process, but none of that due to RB, rather the bureaucracy and feet dragging of the MoD. There was one small period of frustration on my part when I had not heard from them in a while, but it transpired that their communications with me via e-mail had gone into my spam box, that I don't regularly check, so this frustration was my fault completely. David received an initial settlement offer, but refused it and negotiated a 33% increase in the offer on my behalf. I thoroughly recommend this Business to any former service personnel that served in NI after 1987, that have suffered hearing injuries. Thank you Reid Black.read more

      A Separation of a marriage is a really devasting and stressful time. My daughter used the services of Kathryn Aiken. Kathryn is such a lovely lady, with a real kindness and total understanding of the situation. She gave my daughter excellent legal advice and guided us safely through the whole process. Yes it did take time to finally come to an agreement on matters, but all throughout Kathryn was available to answer emails promptly or take a phone call. Nothing was ever a bother. That means a lot to have that total backing and support. We felt totally at ease meeting Kathryn at her office to sign documents and as upsetting as it sometimes was we were shown total empathy and comforted on occasions were needed. The quotation Kathryn gave me at the start of the process was near enough spot on at the end. I would not hesitate to recommend Kathryn to anyone in need of help. you are 100% in the best professional hands. I will be using Kathryn again in the future. Thank you for everything. Kerry and Naomi.read more

      Ref - Military hearing loss claim. I am speechless - having left the Army 32 years ago I never expected to qualify for any sort of payout. Getting in touch with Reid Black Solicitors was more a case of - 'try it and see, nothing ventured, nothing gained.' Absolutely dumbfounded by the amount you have recovered for me. I never expected any payout to be in the 5 figure bracket. We have a modest income and lead a modest lifestyle, but now, all our current financial challenges are over. A 'Thank you' seems totally inadequate, but we are truly grateful for your efforts and the result. Thank you. Kind Regards Alan Munceread more
