Unfortunately, accidents occur on a daily basis, such is the fast pace of the world we live in today. There are many different injuries that can arise as a consequence of such an incident, and in this post, we are going to take a look at pelvic injuries in particular. From the symptoms of a pelvic injury to compensation claims, we reveal all.
First, let’s take a look at how you could develop a pelvic injury. There are many different ways you can sustain this type of injury, including a fall in the workplace, slipping on an unmarked wet floor, and being involved in a serious car crash. If you want to make a claim for your injury, the type of accident you have been involved in is not the determining factor.
Rather, you need to be able to prove that someone else caused the accident, and thus they are responsible for your injuries. For example, the supermarket could be responsible for failing to indicate that there was a spillage on the floor, or your employer could be responsible for your fall because he or she failed to secure the workplace effectively, and, therefore, knowingly putting you in danger.
The symptoms of pelvic injuries vary, but you will probably experience swelling and bruising over your pelvic bones as well as pain and tenderness in your pelvic bone area. Other symptoms include pain or discomfort whenever you walk, stand, or sit, as well as tingling and numbness in your upper thighs or genital area. It is important to see a doctor if you experience any of these. Not only will a doctor be able to help you with treating a pelvic injury, but they will put together a medical report, which is arguably the most crucial piece of evidence when claiming. The long term effects of a pelvic injury can be severe, and your compensation amount will reflect this.
