Will I have to pay anything to claim?
We believe that when you have suffered an injury that wasn't your fault, you shouldn't have to pay up front to make a compensation claim. That's why 98% of our personal injury claims are done on a No Win No Fee basis. This ensures you don't have to pay anything up front, and that we will only take a fee if we win you the compensation you deserve.
Will I have to have a medical for my groin injury claim?
Yes, the bones and muscles of the groin and pelvis are very complex, and we need to make sure we have all the facts we need to make a successful claim. So even where you already have hospital records or x-rays, we will usually send you to see a medical expert who will assess how serious your injury is, and also try to predict how long it will take you to recover from.
Will I have to go to court for a groin injury claim?
The majority of groin injury claims are settled between lawyers and insurance companies, so it's unlikely that your groin injury claim would mean going to court. However, where the seriousness of an injury meant that we were seeking a very large settlement for you, it is possible for these cases to go to court.
What counts as a groin injury?
There are many different types of groin injury, most often caused by heavy lifting in the workplace, which stretches and tears the groin muscles. Some of the groin injuries we commonly help people to claim compensation for include:
Groin injuries can take many forms though. So if you are suffering from groin swelling or discomfort that you believe has been caused by someone else, you should talk to one of our friendly advisors today.
What can I claim for?
Where you have suffered a groin injury that wasn't your fault, you might be entitled to claim compensation for a number of things, including:
- Loss of earnings
- Loss of amenity
- Pain and suffering
- Travel costs
- Mobility equipment
Groin injuries can be extremely painful, and can require hospital treatment in many cases, leading to long periods when you can't work. So if you have suffered a groin injury that was someone else's fault, you have every right to start a No Win No Fee compensation claim.
Who is responsible for my groin injury?
There are many causes of groin injuries, but we mostly see those caused by heavy lifting in the workplace. In these cases, your employer may be to blame, as it's not a good idea to spend a lot of your time at work lifting heavy weights, especially without proper training or equipment. When this happens, you run the risk of damaging your groin and perhaps being unable to continue in the same line of work in the future. Many of the groin injuries we help with are caused by:
- Workplace lifting: where weights are too heavy for one person
- Workplace lifting: where proper training hasn't been given
- Slips and trips: where muscles have been overstretched
- Car accidents: whether you were a passenger, pedestrian or cyclist
So however you received your groin injury, if it wasn't your fault you may be entitled to claim substantial compensation. Talk to one of our friendly advisors now on 0800 175 7900.
