What Are Pelvis Injury Claims?
Pelvis injury claims enable you to recover compensation when you have injured your pelvic bone in an accident for which somebody else was primarily to blame. Irrespective of how your injury was sustained, by making a successful claim for a pelvis injury you will be compensated for the pain you experienced at the time of your accident, the effect that the pelvis injury has had on your quality of life and any financial consequences of a pelvic injury.
Making Pelvis Injury Claims for Compensation
Pelvis injury claims have to show that a pelvis injury has been sustained and that the injury was due to a third party´s lack of care. Determining that you have sustained a pelvis injury can be proven by your medical records, but establishing that a third party caused the injury to your pelvis through their negligent actions – or lack of actions – can often be more difficult.
Police reports or accident reports may need to be compiled and evidence gathered in support of your pelvis injury claim. At a time when you may be in a considerable amount of pain from the injury to your pelvis, collecting evidence of negligence may not be something which is easy for you to do and should not be made a priority before recovering from your pelvic injury.
Therefore, it is in your best interests to discuss making pelvis injury claims for compensation with a solicitor as soon as practically possible. A solicitor will assess your claim for a pelvis injury, assist you where necessary to collect evidence in support of your pelvis injury claim and advise you whether you have a claim for pelvis injury compensation which is worth your while to pursue.
How Much Can I Claim for a Pelvis Injury?
How much compensation for a pelvis injury you will be entitled to receive will depend on your own personal circumstances. A solicitor will calculate the value of your pelvis injury claim by considering the severity of your damaged bone in relation to your age, sex and general state of health prior to the accident which was responsible for the injury to your pelvis.
As mentioned above, the effect that a damaged pelvis makes to your quality of life will also be taken into account when compiling a claim for pelvis injury compensation along with your lack of ability to perform day-to-day tasks while still suffering from a pelvic injury. Any quantifiable psychological consequences of the accident which led to your pelvic injury being sustained – for example any confidence issues you may have in the future due to the nature of your accident – will also be integrated into your pelvis injury claim.
You are also entitled to recover any financial costs which are directly attributable to the injury to your pelvis when making a claim for pelvis injury compensation. These can range from expenses incurred seeking medical attention following your accident and pelvis injury, to additional transport costs while you are unable to drive during your recovery. Any loss of income can also be recovered in a claim for pelvis injury compensation – including overtime and pension contributions.
How Much Does it Cost to Make Pelvis Injury Claims for Compensation?
Provided that your solicitor believes there is a strong likelihood of your claim for pelvis injury compensation being successful, he or she will usually be prepared to represent you in your pelvis injury claim on a “No Win, No Fee” basis. This usually means that, should you lose your claim for pelvis injury compensation, you will not owe your solicitor for their legal fees and, when your pelvis injury claim is successful, you will retain 100 percent of your compensation settlement.
However, not all solicitors offer “No Win, No Fee” pelvis injury claims on the same basis, and it may be necessary for you to take out an insurance policy to protect yourself from potential financial exposure should your claim for pelvis injury compensation be unsuccessful. Your solicitor should explain the exact terms and conditions of a “No Win, No Fee” pelvis injury claim prior to accepting your claim.
