Claiming compensation for fractures sustained in the workplace

The workplace is one area where you tend to spend a great deal of time and when you are there you expect your employer to provide you with acceptable levels of health and safety right across the board. There are a number of strict rules and regulations which govern how any workplace safety should be conducted and it’s important that you adhere to these if you want the workplace to be effectively safe and secure for any employees.

If you have sustained a fracture while in the workplace that was through no fault of your own then you could look to make a claim for compensation. Fractures are quite common in the workplace and the severity of your injury will depend on the type of fracture that you have sustained, but in any situation if you have been a victim in this way then you shouldn’t be left to suffer in silence.

What situations might I be able to make a claim?

Suffering from a fracture is more serious than you think and if it occurs in the workplace you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Some examples of where you might look to claim include:

·         Claims for slips and falls

·         Claims for wet surfaces

·         Claims for uneven surfaces

·         Claims against your employer for failing to provide a safe environment

Who might be responsible for your claim?

When it comes to making a claim for fractures sustained in the workplace, the most likely person this would be directed at would be your employer or the company itself for failing to ensure it is a safe environment.  Whether you have slipped or tripped on an uneven surface, an injury such as this can be very painful and could cause you to be forced off work for an extended period of time, meaning that you could lose out on your income. Making a successful claim for compensation could be your best option to getting yourself back on your feet and recouping any losses you have encountered.
