If you have broken your hip then the chances are you have suffered a serious and debilitating injury.
However, if your broken hip was sustained in an accident that could have been prevented by someone else’s actions, you may have grounds to make a compensation claim. This can help to alleviate the financial burden that you may have experienced as a result of your injury, especially if it has left you unable to work.
It is impossible to estimate exactly how much compensation someone might receive without assessing their individual circumstances. However, we have put together the figures below to give you an idea of how much is typically awarded in broken hip compensation claims.
The table below will give you an indication of how much compensation for a hip injury. Please note, the total amount of compensation you receive may be higher than this after your injury-related financial losses have also been considered.
Level of broken hip injury
|Broken hip with no residual disability and a complete recovery within two years.||£2,800 – £9,000|
|Hip injury resulting in a hip replacement operation, other surgery or the possibility of a future operation.||£9,000 – £19,000|
|Significant hip injury but no risk of disability.||£19,000 – £28,000|
|Hip injuries that lead to degenerative changes, hip replacement surgery, fracture of an arthritic femur or instability of the leg.||£28,000 – £37,500|
|Extensive hip injury resulting in dislocation of a lower back joint or a ruptured bladder.
Your hip injury may have even caused you spondylolisthesis of a low back joint and excruciating pain treated by spinal fusion.
