Causes of Hip and Leg Injuries
Serious hip and leg injuries are usually caused by a tremendous force being exerted on the human body, and can be the result from:
- Hit by a drunk driver
- Head-on collisions
- T-bone collisions
- Motorcycle accidents
- Semi-truck accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
What Compensation is Available?
If you prove negligence on the part of the at-fault party by (1) demonstrating there was a duty of care; (2) the at-fault party breached that duty of care; (3) the at-fault party – through the breach of care – injured you; and (4) the injury has a monetary value, then you can obtain compensation in the form of:
- Economic damages, which includes most things with a monetary value already attached to it, e.g., medical expenses (past and future), lost wages, loss of earning capacity.
- Non-economic damages, which includes all non-tangible things, e.g., pain and suffering.
Complications Due to a Hip or Leg Injury?
Your hips bear the weight of your body. Hips help you move. An injury to a hip or hips can be extremely painful initially, and cause serious problems later, especially if you are an older or elderly person. There are early complications and late complications associated with all kinds of fractures. Early complications range from soft tissue damage to serious infections. Late complications occur after treatment and materialize in a variety of complications, for example, osteomyelitis or loss of function. Those personal injury victims more at risk of delayed complications include children, whose bones are still growing, and the elderly, whose bones are frailer. For the former, proper bone growth can be affected, and for the latter, death can result prematurely.
Risk of Complication Variables
- The type of fracture;
- The site of the fracture;
- The circumstances and the complexity;
- Patient-specific risk factors in addition to age;
- The quality of management of the fracture; and
- Post-fracture activities.
