Compensation for a broken leg at work

Whether it’s walking, running or simply getting around, our legs are one of the most important parts of our body. Although in many situations they are one part of our body that we take for granted, from time to time accidents can happen and we could be left with a broken leg as a result of an injury in the workplace – which makes it increasingly difficult to perform a number of common daily tasks.

The workplace is one area that is very tightly governed by health and safety rules and regulations, but in some situations these are not always followed. If you find yourself the victim of negligent health and safety in the workplace then you could be eligible to make a claim for any injuries you have sustained.
