Are you laid up in hospital and wondering how much compensation for a broken hip?
If you’ve had a fall while out shopping and suffered a fracture then you might be wondering how much compensation for a broken hip. Perhaps you slipped on a spillage on a shop floor or tripped over unmarked road works. Maybe you collided with an obstacle on the pavement or were knocked over by a cyclist.
There are lots of questions innocent victims of accidents have about claiming compensation, especially as for most of them it will be their first experience of making a personal injury claim. They want to know if they qualify for compensation, if the process is difficult, how long it will take, and how much it will cost them. In your circumstances, you’ll be asking how much compensation for a broken hip?
Answering the question – How much compensation for a broken hip?
At the start of a claim, no one can guarantee how much compensation will be awarded, there are too many things that can affect it, including:
- The severity of your injury – is it permanent, or will you make a full recovery?
- How the injury has affected your life – has your life been changed forever, or just until you are better?
- Have you had to lose time from work – lost earnings can be claimed for, for the future as well if your injuries are such that you will never go back to work.
- The extra expenses that accidents always create – these could be something as small as prescription charges, or parking fees at the hospital, but could also be much more expensive. Childcare, home help, adaption to or moving home could all cost a lot of money.
