Compensation for a broken ankle at work

The ankle is one of the most crucial joints in the body – it’s responsible for connecting our leg to our foot and for ensuring that the movement that we have is smooth and flexible. Without this important connection it can often be difficult to walk, run or even move in a way that makes completing many common tasks possible.

As one of the smallest joints in the body, the ankle is also quite fragile and can be incredibly susceptible to damage if pressure is placed on this area, accordingly it’s quite easy for a broken or fractured ankle to occur during sport or even as the result of an accident. Due to the importance of the ankle any break in this area can leave us with a number of medical problems and therefore you may consider a compensation claim to cover any associated costs.

If I am left with a broken ankle at work, who could I claim against?

For any injuries that you sustain within the workplace, you could be eligible to claim against your employer if you feel that they have been directly negligent towards you. Broken ankles can occur for a number of different reasons, but one of the most popular causes is through a lack of appropriate safety warnings in a workplace, or through items which have been left carelessly lying around. If you feel that your employer could have done more to protect your safety, then you could consider a compensation claim.
