The most serious upper leg injury compensation claims in Ireland are those relating to motorcyclists who have been involved in a road traffic accident and broken their femur. These debilitating injuries can take many months to heal and result in substantial amounts of upper leg injury compensation against a negligent driver, due to the trauma that is suffered and lengthy rehabilitation required for recovery.
However, there are many other upper leg injuries which also qualify for substantial upper leg injury compensation. Most recently in the news has been the DePuy Orthopaedics scandal, in which thousands of hip replacement systems have been found to have a “higher than expected” failure rate. Also, a claim for upper leg injury compensation can arise from a work-related accident, a slip, trip or fall, or any other road traffic accident in which the victim sustains an upper leg injury due to the negligence of another.
Even musculoskeletal or soft tissue injuries to the upper leg can cause lifelong mobility issues if not dealt with in a timely fashion. Therefore, it is important that after sustaining an injury to the upper leg, you visit the accident and emergency department of your local hospital and get treatment. Once there is no threat of permanent disability, you should speak with a solicitor about making a claim for upper leg injury compensation.
Making a Claim for Upper Leg Injury Compensation
Claims for upper leg injury compensation are initially made to the Injuries Board Ireland. However, it is always in your best interests to seek the assistance of a personal injury claims solicitor with experience in this type of claim. When the Injuries Board Ireland receive your application for upper leg injury compensation, unless there is a comprehensive addendum to cover special damages, they may just look at the upper leg injury and assess an amount of upper leg injury compensation without any consideration to ongoing medical or care expenses.
This scenario could leave you seriously undercompensated for your upper leg injury claim and, if you are having to go through a long rehabilitation due to a broken femur, it may result in future financial difficulties. Once you have made a claim for upper leg injury compensation, and received your award, you cannot go back for more should you find it insufficient for your needs. This is the main reason why 90% of people making a claim for upper leg injury compensation to the Injuries Board Ireland do so with legal representation through a personal injury claims solicitor.
