    Different types of pelvis injuries

    The human body is an impressive machine, but sadly, it’s not unbreakable. Accidents happen, and you can wind up nursing injuries for days, weeks or even months. In some cases, injuries are so severe that they can turn your life upside down. In many cases, life-changing injuries are brought about by incidents like road traffic accidents. If you’ve been injured in a car crash, and you’re dealing with different types of pelvis injuries or spinal injuries, you may be thinking about compensation. If your life has been affected by somebody else’s negligence, it’s only right that you are compensated accordingly.

    Road accident injuries: different types of pelvis injuries

    The pelvis forms the base of the abdomen. It is a bony structure, which is usually damaged by the powerful impact. It often takes a lot of damage, and this is why road traffic accidents are the most common cause. Other types of accidents that may cause pelvic injuries include horse riding, motorbike accidents and severe slips, trips and falls.

    Fractures are the most common types of pelvis injuries. There are lots of different types of fracture, which can affect the bone structures within the pelvis. Examples include lateral compression fracture, iliac wing fracture and sacrum fracture. The pelvis is made up of three main joints and five principal bones. It is held together by strong ligaments. Due to its location, it’s common for pelvic injuries to be accompanied by damage to the surrounding internal organs.

    Often, when pelvic pain is not associated with a fall or a car accident, it is caused by conditions that predominantly affect women.

    Am I eligible for compensation?

    If you’ve developed symptoms of a pelvic injury after an accident in the last 3 years, you could claim compensation. Provided that you can prove that you were not at fault for the accident, you should be able to make a claim for a pelvic injury. If you were hit by another driver who was driving recklessly, for example, this means that you are not liable for the accident.
