Bilateral hip dislocations are rare compared to unilateral ones. They are usually seen following high velocity injury. This case report describes a 42-year-old male passenger who was involved in a road traffic accident and had high posterior dislocation of both hips associated with a symphysis pubis diastasis, a fracture of the acetabulum on the right and a fracture of the inferior pubic ramus on the left. The reduction must take place as early as possible and within a period not exceeding six hours.
