    Groin injury claim


    A groin injury usually occurs when the groin area is stretched beyond its normal limits. They are a very common sporting injury, but can also be an occupational injury. They can be caused at work by putting an abnormally large amount of pressure on the groin area through intense physical activity.

    Employers have a duty of care towards their employees. If you have suffered a groin injury while you were at work, and it can be shown that it was your employer’s fault, you may be able to make a groin injury claim.

    Groin injuries can also be suffered when you are out in public places. If you slip, trip or fall on a wet surface, for example, then you could strain your groin. If this accident can be shown to be someone else’s fault, then you may be able to claim compensation.

    The best thing is to get some legal advice to help you do this. Many people chose to contact Accident Advice Helpline. We have a team of highly trained, professional advisers who can advise you about making a groin injury claim.

    Groin injury symptoms and causes

    A groin injury or strain is caused by over-stretching or tearing of one of the muscles in the groin, which are called adductor muscles. This could happen during a sudden change of direction, for example, during a slip on a wet surface or when carrying out manual work.

    If the strain is mild, the symptoms may not appear for 24 to 48 hours after the accident. In more severe cases, the pain is immediate. There may be swelling or bruising in the area. Sitting, standing, walking and doing ordinary everyday things like getting out of the bath can be painful. You can talk to your personal injury lawyer about claiming for any extra help around the house that you have had to purchase as a result of your groin strain.

    Groin injury treatment

    If you think you will be making a groin injury claim, visit a healthcare professional to get some advice on how best to manage your injury. Applying ice to the affected area for 15 minutes several times a day is usually beneficial. Try to apply the ice as early after the accident as possible – during the first hour if this is practicable.

    Anti-inflammatory medication and painkillers may also help if it is safe for you to take them. There are some gentle stretching exercises that can speed up recovery and a physiotherapist can provide further advice on these.
