    Free phone consultations to all clients

    We offer all new Lincolnshire based clients a free initial phone consultation, during which we will ask you a series a questions to help us build a picture of your specific accident circumstances.

    We will ask you about the accident, who was to blame, the extent of your hip injury, your recovery and whether you have suffered any financial loss due to not being able to work. We may also request to see your medical records and will request these with your permission, on your behalf.

    Once we have a clear picture of how the accident happened and the extent to which you have been injured, we can advise you on the prospects of making a successful No Win No Fee claim against your employer’s insurance company.

    What is a No Win No Fee agreement?

    We do not charge our clients any fees to get a new claim up and running.

    We use “Conditional Fee Agreements” to fund all of our claims. These agreements are also commonly referred to as “No Win No Fee Agreements” or “CFA’s”.

    The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client.  If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time.  For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a % of the client’s compensation award at the end of a successful claim.

    If you have questions about No Win No Fee Agreements or would like to start your hip injury claim then contact us by calling 01507 609027.

    Common types of hip injuries

    Over the last 20 years, our work accident lawyers have advised countless Lincolnshire based clients on successful hip injury claims.

    Some of the most common types of hip related claims include:

    • Compensation for a fractured pelvis, which is one of the most serious types of hip related injuries and can lead to significant time off work to recover. Serious road traffic accidents can be a major cause of fractured bones in the body
    • Dislocated hips caused by slips, trips and falls at work
    • Serious accidents on building and construction sites, warehouses and factories that lead to serious hip injuries that may require hip replacements
    • Manual handling related hip injuries caused by lifting, pushing or pulling related accidents
    • Falls from height can often lead to serious hip and leg related injuries

    If the accident that caused your hip injury is not listed above do not worry, you still may be able to make a successful claim for compensation.

    We have many years of experience in advising clients on hip related injuries so contact us now to see if you can claim.

    How much is my hip injury claim worth?

    The amount of compensation you can claim depends on several different factors including the type of injury you have sustained, the severity of your injury, how long you take to recover and if you suffered any other financial losses such as loss of earnings as a result of the accident.

    The amount of compensation you could expect to receive for the pain and suffering caused by your injuries is based on a set of national guidelines called the Judicial College Guidelines.

    The latest set of guidelines were published at the end of 2019 and some example guideline amounts for hand injuries are set out below:

    • Severe hip injury involving multiple fractures to the pelvis that leads to significant hip deformities – £78,400 to £130,930
    • Very serious injury to the pelvis, including fractures and dislocations – £61,910 – £78,400
    • Serious hip injury that leads to degenerative changes, leg instability and problems walking – £39,170 – £52,500
    • Moderate hip injury that requires surgery but does not lead to severe disability – £26,590 – £39,170
    • Less moderate hip injury that leads to surgery but continuing symptoms deemed only slightly more than minor – £12,590 – £26,590

    *The figures quoted here are illustrative and your potential claim may be worth more or less.

    In addition to compensation for pain and suffering, we are also able to help you claim for “special damages”. These damages include any loss of past and future earnings, your pensions and medical care. Special damages often make up a very large percentage of the total claim value and in some circumstances can amount to millions of pounds.
