Hip Injuries

Hip injuries can occur as a result of car accidents, workplace accidents or slips, trips and falls. Common injuries include bursitis, dislocation, fracture of the femur, fracture of the pelvis, and ligament and muscle strain. More serious injuries can give rise to substantial hip accident compensation claim settlements particularly if mobility is affected. The most debilitating injuries are fractures and dislocation :-

    Fracture

      This refers to a fracture of the top of the thigh bone (the femur). Falling on one side is a common cause of this type of fracture particularly for the elderly. The fracture is diagnosed by an x-ray and there is usually pain and loss of function of the hip.

      The ball joint at the top of the femur can be surgically replaced thereby allowing patients to become mobile again within a few days. In some cases, surgery to fix the fracture in position with steel pins or screws is carried out however this may require many weeks in traction to facilitate healing.

      Avascular necrosis which may be a complication of a fracture, is the death of the bone at the head of the femur (thigh bone) and is caused by failure of the blood supply. Severe pain spreads down to the knee and is made worse by movement or standing. Movement gradually becomes more and more restricted and the thigh muscles become thinner on the affected side. Surgery to replace the head of the femur may be necessary in advanced cases.

    Dislocation

      A dislocation is movement of the head of the femur (thigh bone) out of its socket in the pelvis. A traumatic dislocation is a major injury that often occurs in motor vehicle collisions and industrial accidents.

      The ball at the head of the femur is forcibly torn from its socket and the surrounding ligaments and muscles are often badly damaged. The symptoms include severe pain and an inability to move the leg. Diagnosis is by an x-ray. The dislocation may be associated with a fracture.

      An operation is usually necessary to repair the damage, and many months convalescence are required. Reasonable results may be achieved with surgery, however, many cases result in permanent disability.

If you have suffered injury in a motor vehicle collision, an industrial accident or in a slip, trip or fall accident then you may be entitled to make a hip accident compensation claim for your pain and suffering and all financial losses.
