Duncan Lewis is one of the UK’s leading firms of personal injury and Legal Aid solicitors – and can advise on how to make a no win no fee compensation claim for a dislocation injury which occurred as a result of someone else’s negligence.

 

Making a Claim for Dislocation Injury

 

Dislocation injuries involve a bone being out of alignment as a result of injuries to the surrounding tissues or ligaments.

 

Common dislocation injuries can involve a dislocated shoulder or hip as a result of accidents or sports – anyone who has seen a tug-o-war can understand better how a shoulder may become dislocated.

 

Industrial accidents can also result in dislocation – accidents involving vehicles like fork-lifts which can topple on uneven surfaces, or machinery parts which draw clothing or a limb into a moving machine can result in dislocation injuries.

 

Even the smallest bones can become dislocated – including bones in fingers and toes. Dislocation may accompany Fractured Bones/Broken Bones.

 

Common dislocation injuries include:

  • Dislocated Ankle
  • Dislocated Elbow
  • Dislocated Finger (especially dislocated thumb)
  • Dislocated Hip
  • Dislocated Jaw
  • Dislocated Knee
  • Dislocated Shoulder
  • Dislocated Toe.

Dislocation injuries are extremely painful and swelling and bruising may accompany the injury, making dislocation injury extremely debilitating and an interruption to a daily work routine.

 

Dislocation injuries can cut off blood supply and it is inadvisable to try and manipulate the affected joint or limb back into position in case further damage occurs, so always seek medical help.

 

Accidents resulting in dislocation injuries include:

  • Children’s accidents
  • Birth injury
  • Falls/falls from height
  • Falling loads
  • Faulty products
  • Holiday accidents
  • Horse riding accidents
  • Industrial accidents
  • Medical negligence
  • MoD claims
  • Nursery/school/college Accidents
  • Police officers Injured at work
  • Road traffic accidents (RTAS)
  • Sports accidents
  • Work-related dislocation injury.

To make a claim for dislocation injury the injury or accident should result from the negligence of an employer or other party, such as a motorist who causes a road traffic accident which results in dislocation injury.

 

How long do I have to claim for Dislocation Injury?

 

Compensation claims for dislocation injury fall under the area of law known as personal injury.

 

Personal injury claimants usually have three years from the date of the dislocation injury to make a claim for compensation.

 

Claims can sometimes be made outside the three-year limitation period, however – and minors have three years from the age of 18 to make a claim.

 

Because of the limitation period for personal injury claims, it is important to seek legal advice from Duncan Lewis personal injury solicitors as soon as possible if you wish to make a dislocation injury compensation claim.

 

Family members can call Duncan Lewis for advice on making a claim if a loved one has been badly injured and is still recovering in hospital.

 

How much compensation can I claim for Dislocation Injury?

 

Compensation for Dislocation Injury includes:

  • General Damages for pain, suffering and loss of amenity
    The exact amount will be assessed according to the extent of injury, estimated recovery time and rehabilitation needed – and whether further medical treatment or even lifelong care is needed in the case of severe injuries with associated dislocation injury.
  • Special Damages to cover medical fees and out-of-pocket expenses
    Expenses might include physiotherapy, loss of earnings, travel expenses to hospital or damage to personal items. Ongoing care, loss of future salary and pension or adaptations to your home would be included in the event of serious injuries.
    • Who pays the Compensation for Dislocation Injury Claims?

       

      The insurer of the company liable for the injury usually settles compensation claims – for example an employer’s insurer if the dislocation injury was sustained in a work accident or industrial accident.

       

      MoD claims for dislocation injuries can be settled under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme – and a no win no fee claim for dislocation injuries can also be made.

       

      Will I have to go to court to claim compensation?

       

      Your Duncan Lewis personal injury solicitor will keep you fully informed at all stages of the case.

       

      Most dislocation injury compensation claims are settled out-of-court – Duncan Lewis personal injury lawyers negotiate hard to get the best settlement for you.

       

      But if a court hearing is necessary, Duncan Lewis instructs leading barristers who specialise in personal injury cases, to make sure you have the best legal representation possible.

       

      Compensation paid to minors for dislocation injuries has to be approved at an Infant Settlement Hearing at the local County Court – the child and their “Litigation Friend” (usually a parent or guardian) have to attend this hearing.
