Have you injured your pelvis?
Most pelvic fractures are the result of high-velocity road accidents such as vehicle collisions. In motorcycle accidents, nearly as many people suffer pelvic injuries as leg injuries.
Especially in elderly people, pelvic fracture can be caused by a lower-impact event, such as a minor fall. Pelvic fractures and other pelvic injury can also occur in the workplace, for example by being crushed by a falling object.
Pelvic injury compensation
An injury to your pelvis can have a major impact on your life and activities. It may stop you from driving, working, looking after your family, and doing what you enjoy.
If you have an accident, you need the right help, tailored to your situation. When the accident wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to pay for the consequences, or chase around trying to find the right specialist help. We can support you.
Making a claim for compensation might seem like extra hassle, but we make it simple to get the right advice and help, with just one free phone call. Our support will help you to recover more quickly.
Compensation can really help to ease the stress, covering medical costs, loss of earnings, housing and travel costs, and continuing care. It also compensates you for the pain and suffering. If you suffer a more serious injury, it can help you adapt your home, car and way of life.
Get the right treatment
When you injure your pelvis, it’s essential to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. This increases the chances of treating your injury in the best way. If you decide to claim for compensation, it can also provide useful evidence.
If your accident happened in the workplace or in a public place, make sure that details are recorded in that location’s accident book.
The pelvis is close to major blood vessels and organs, so a pelvic fracture can cause extensive bleeding and other injuries that need urgent treatment. This may involve removal of the spleen, blood transfusions and intensive care. Major pelvic injuries can be devastating, and may cause complications that need extensive rehabilitation.

Why claim for a pelvic injury?
Treating an injury to your pelvis may be a lengthy process. It can take months to recover, and your injury may cause stiffness and discomfort in the longer term. If you need to take long periods off work, you may find it difficult to keep up with the mortgage, rent or household bills. You might also have to depend on someone else to help you. Claiming compensation for loss of earnings could enable you and your family to cope.
The majority of pelvic injuries in the UK are caused by high-energy road traffic accidents, but some happen in the workplace. If you are injured while working, you might be tempted to wonder if the accident was your fault. In fact, your employer has a duty to keep you safe. By claiming compensation, you could help to bring about changes in training and work environments – changes that may help to protect colleagues, reducing the risk of similar accidents.
If your employer was negligent and could have done more to keep you safe, you can claim compensation. Usually, your employer’s liability insurance will cover the compensation award, so no one will lose out.
