Compensation for a Comminuted Fracture at work

Dealing with a fractured limb can be an incredibly painful and difficult process, but unfortunately in some circumstances this can be made worse if the limb is fractured in more than one place. In the case of a comminuted fracture, it generally refers to fracture which has been sustained in more than one area of the limb and fractures of these type usually require a great deal of rest and rehabilitation after any accident.

The workplace is a common area for accidents to occur, but this doesn’t mean that you should have to suffer financially if the accidents were no fault of your own. If you have suffered from a comminute fracture in the workplace that was not your fault, you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any costs you have incurred.

In the workplace, where could a Comminuted fracture be sustained?

In general comminuted fractures can be sustained in any area of the workplace where you are involved in an accident and suffer from a serious impact. Some common examples of these situations include:

  • Injuries sustained by the incorrect operation of machinery
  • Injuries sustained by poor or inadequate lighting
  • Injuries sustained in trips and falls
  • Injuries sustained in falls from a height
  • Injuries sustained through the failure of poorly tested equipment.

If I sustain a Comminuted fracture, who could I consider claiming against?

As with any injury which is sustained in the workplace, you may consider making a compensation claim against your employer, especially if you feel that they are the reason that your injury was caused in the first place. In general it’s the responsibility of your employer to ensure that you are working in a safe environment and if you feel that they haven’t done this, you could be eligible to make a claim against them for compensation.
