Lower body injuries can have a substantial impact on your life
Lower body injuries are any injury that has been sustained in the waist area down to your toes. Most lower body injuries can cause a restriction to your mobility, this restriction can sometimes be permanent. Therefore, as well as physical pain, these types of injuries can also lead to emotional suffering such as depression and isolation.
Alongside both physical and emotional impacts lower body injuries can leave a financial strain causing further stress when trying to recover as they can lead to large periods of time off work with little or no pay.

What types of injuries are classed as lower body injuries?
There are various ways a lower-body injury can be sustained and therefore, various ways a body part can be injured. We have helped thousands of people claim the compensation they deserve from a lower-body injury, some of the most common types of injuries are:
- Pelvis/hip injury – connecting the spine to the legs, the pelvis is made up of the hip bones (ilium, ischium and pubis), the sacrum and the coccyx. Whilst pelvic injuries are common in older age groups they can happen at any age and are more commonly caused by misdiagnosis/medical negligence, slip, trip or fall or an accident at work/industrial disease (e.g. repetitive strain injury (RSI))
- Groin injury – there are five muscles that run up your inner thigh to your pelvis, if an injury occurs to one of the muscles tear or rupture then it will be classed as a groin injury. It is also not uncommon for groin injuries to later result in an inguinal or a femoral hernia
- Leg injury – an injury to one or both legs can cause mobility issues and pain, some leg injuries can lead to time off work and the more severe in nature can require amputation causing drastic changes in the sufferer’s lifestyle. The most common leg injuries include strains/sprains to ligaments and/or muscles, fractures and breaks
- Ankle, Foot and Toes injuries – commonly these types of injuries are as a result of sporting activities such as dance, football and gymnastics, they can also arise as a result of a slip, trip or fall, accident at work or a road traffic accident
- Although this area is quite small an injury to it can drastically change the sufferers’ life as their ability to walk and even maintain their balance can be hugely affected. The most commonly found injuries include crushes, sprains/strains, dislocation and breaks/fractures
- Knee injury – the knee is a complex joint which is formed by four parts, ligaments, tendons, bones and cartilage and can be damaged in various ways, sports, road traffic accident, accident at work, industrial disease (e.g. repetitive strain injury (RSI)) and slips trips or falls and due to this there are also various ways the knee can be damaged/injured
