How Much Compensation Can I Claim for a Hip or Pelvis Injury in Glasgow?
A hip or pelvis injury can seriously impede a person’s mobility and in the most extreme cases can make walking or standing impossible. These injuries can affect the organs and joints that surround the hip and pelvis. Loss of continence or sexual function can have a devastating impact upon the sufferer’s life.
What Factors Will Be Taken into Consideration?
The level of compensation that you are able to claim will vary according to the circumstances of the accident. Factors that can be taken into consideration include, the severity of the hip or pelvis injury, any disability that is caused and the impact the injury has upon the person’s ability to work and take part in a social life.
The figures listed here from the Judicial College Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases 13th ed. give a guide to how much compensation might be awarded for a particular injury. This information is normally used by lawyers to estimate how much their client may be due. These guidelines only cover the pain and suffering aspect of a compensation award. In many cases it is possible to claim for things such as any mental anguish that has been experienced as a result of the injury or time that has had to be taken off work. The precise circumstances of each personal injury case are different so please contact our expert solicitors for a clearer picture of what you may be able to claim.
