We will help you recover compensation for:
The hip is the largest ball-and-socket joint in the body and is vulnerable to injury due to its structure. While we often think of senior citizens being most prone to hip problems, many young people are left dealing with the pain from hip injuries after an accident.
Hip fractures are most common in people over the age of 65 because their bones weaken, making them vulnerable to breaks. However, young people with healthy bones deal with hip fractures every day due to trauma from an accident. Symptoms of a fractured or broken hip include:
There is little to no treatment for a fractured hip. Most often, treatment consists of surgery, rehabilitation, and medication. You should seek medical attention immediately if you have experienced even the smallest trauma and are experiencing any of these symptoms.
Bursae are fluid-filled sacs between the joint and the soft tissues and are designed to reduce friction. These sacs can become inflamed and cause severe hip pain known as bursitis. Bursitis is often the result of repetitive minor trauma to the area or due to a major injury. Age, along with repetitive motion of the hip can also be factors leading to bursitis. Symptoms include:
Medication, physical therapy, injections, and, at times, surgery are all treatment options for bursitis.
A dislocation of the hip happens when the ball found at the top of the femur slips out of its socket. This causes extreme pain and an inability to move the leg. Hip dislocations require a lot of force—perhaps from a major fall or a motor vehicle accident. Symptoms include:
Treatment for hip dislocation involves going to the emergency room for X-rays and a diagnosis. If it is determined you are suffering from a hip dislocation, doctors will administer medication to treat your pain and relax your muscles, and then slip the head of the femur back into its socket.
A labral tear is when the cartilage surrounding the bony edge of the socket in the pelvis becomes damaged. This type of injury can be caused when the joint is suddenly twisted. This can happen in an accident or a fall and can also result from a hip that is repeatedly stressed. Symptoms include:
Often, labral tears can be treated with anti-inflammatory drugs and physical therapy, although there are times when surgery is needed.
