Amount of Compensation

In order to promote consistency and assist the courts, personal injury solicitors and other advisers, the Judicial Studies Board publish a set of guidelines for the level of injury awards for a broad range of injuries. The information, which follows, has been taken from those guidelines. Whilst the guidelines are very useful and provide a good general indicator of the level of damages which may be paid, it should be remembered that no two cases are ever the same and general damage claims for injuries resulting from accidents will always reflect the individual circumstances of the particular in dividual and the injuries he or she has suffered and claims will be assessed accordingly.

 

Accidents Leading to Pelvic and Hip Injury Claims

Compensation claims awards for accidents leading to personal injury compensation claims for injuries to the pelvis and hip may be conveniently broken down into three categories whioch would be severe, moderate and minor.

Compensation claims for severe personal injuries of these types would attract awards between 20,000 and 67,500. Awards towards the upper end of the bracket would be where there were multiple and serious fractures of the pelvis with added complications such as a ruptured bladder or extensive fractures of the hip resulting in knock-on injuries to lower back joints. In these types of claims, there will inevitably be quite serious lasting difficulties. These may be a lack of bladder and bowel control. There may be sexual dysfunction and difficulties in natural child deliver. Compensation awards would be paid for those items also. Claims could be expected to be paid between 41,250 and 67,500.

Where injuries are only slightly less serious than those described above, they may fall into the moderate compensation claims category. The range of claims settled in this category would be between about 20,000 and 41,250. Accidents would have resulted in personal injuries such as fracture and / or dislocation of the pelvis with some added complications such as impotence. Of slightly less value, would be the fracture of bones which were already arthritic but which required replacement as a result of the fresh injury. Similarly, claims for fractures resulting in hip replacement which are only partially successful would fall within this bracket but at it's lower end.

Compensation claims may be settled between 14,000 and 20,000 where there is substantial injury to the pelvis or the hip but there is no great permanent disability and the future risk of serious disability is not great. Where injuries require hip replacement, claims may be paid between 6,500 and 14,000.

Finally, accidents where the victim has suffered minor injury attract claims ranging from 2,000 through to 6,500. Claims would be paid at the lower end of the scale where there has been only minor personal injury and complete recovery. There would be slightly higher payment within the scale where there was quite serious initial injury with associated pain but little or no lasting disability.
