Causes of groin injuries
We know that the symptoms of a groin injury can develop over time, so it can be difficult to know how or when a groin injury started.
Groin injuries are often caused by a large amount of strain, pressure or an impact on your thigh or groin area. Injuries can happen when groin muscles are tensing too quickly or forcefully, typically the result of a road accident or a sporting accident.
If your groin injury was caused because of a faulty piece of gym equipment, such as a faulty weight machine, then you may be able to make a claim if management did not check or maintain the machine.
You may also be able to make a claim if something has fallen on you, such as netball or basketball hoops or a goal post.
Unfortunately, we cannot help you make a claim if your injury was the result of normal gameplay or training.
Claiming for multiple injuries
A groin injury is typically the overstretching of the muscles in your groin area. When this stretching happens too quickly, beyond normal limits or because of an impact, this can cause the muscle tissues to tear or rupture, which is painful and can affect your mobility.
Often a groin injury is one of multiple injuries caused by the same accident, such as damage to ligaments or tendons around the area, additional injuries to your thighs or hamstrings or injuries affecting your abdominals.
When you contact us, we’ll work hard to understand the full impact of your accident and the injuries it has caused. This can bolster your full claim.
How much compensation could you claim?
When you contact us, we try to ascertain how the injury has affected your life, your loved ones and your ability to work. This all supports your claim.
We are unable to make an estimate on compensation from your initial contact. Your lawyer will make a determination after the claim is submitted and negotiations are in order. This can also determine how the at-fault party responds to your claim.
To gain the maximum allowable amounts, your lawyer considers and negotiates to cover:
- Time off work and financial losses
- Any time off work your loved ones have had to look after you or take you to appointments
- Medical treatment you’ve paid for, such as physiotherapy or private hospital visits
- Any future medical treatment you might need to fully recover
If you’re unsure, we recommend calling us to be sure whether you have a case. Call us to have peace of mind and get advice about your next steps and options.
