The Most Common Causes of Pelvis Injuries

Multiple factors can cause pelvis injuries or broken pelvis. The following are the most common:

  • Severe trauma
  • Road traffic accident
  • Insufficiency or weakening of bone
  • Accidents at work
  • Fall, slip, trip accidents
  • Calamity during sports activities

1. Workplace Accidents

Workplace accidents can cause severe injuries. If you are employed (directly by your employer, a host employer or a labour hire company) you may be able to claim compensation for injuries from a workplace accident. Pelvic injuries such as hip replacement or hip discomfort can be treated by hip replacement surgery. But if your pelvic fractures are severe enough to cause breakage of your hip bone, compensation for a broken hip may also be claimed.

Most road traffic accidents give rise to restricted mobility due to pelvic fracture, or permanent disability due to serious injuries making you disabled for the rest of your life.
