Pelvis and Hip Injury Claims

Pelvis and hip injuries comprise relatively minor soft tissue injuries right through to more severe crush injuries and fractures which can have a huge impact on the victim’s day to day life.

Many pelvis and hip injuries arise from working with heavy objects and machinery, as well as slips, trips and falls in the workplace including falls from ladders and high platforms. If you have suffered injury to the pelvis or hips in work that wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to make a claim for damages.

Your employer has a duty of care to its employees to take steps to minimize the risk of accidents in the workplace, and there is legislation in place that covers all their responsibilities, as well as those of you as a worker.

If your employer has not fulfilled its obligations in this regard and you’ve been injured as a result, then it is right and proper for you to pursue damages.
