Fracture injury claims
Suffering from fractured bones due to an accident at work can be a particularly painful and distressing time. Aside from the pain of the injury, which could have been caused by a slip, trip or fall, falling object or various other means, suffering from a fracture could cause other problems. You may be required to take time from work and, in more extreme cases, you may experience a severe impact on your lifestyle.
Where employers fail to protect their workers from the risks of injury, the likelihood of fracture injuries is increased.
If you have suffered from any form of fracture injury at work because of an accident Irwin Mitchell could help you to claim compensation.
Expert lawyers in fractures at work claims
Fracture injuries in the workplace can occur for various reasons but are usually caused by slips, trips, or being struck by falling objects.
Employers are required to assess and minimise the risk of any potential accident, protecting workers from the risks of such injuries. Where employers fail to meet these requirements and an accident occurs, you could be entitled to claim compensation.
Fractures range in severity. Hairline fractures are the least serious although they can still be painful, with simple fractures (a single crack across the shaft of a bone) and compound or open fractures (where the broken end of a bone is protruding through the skin), being the most serious.
