Compensation for a complete fracture at work

There are a number of common situations in the workplace which can leave a person with fractures to their body, but as with any type of injury some are far worse than others. In most situations a small accident could leave a person with an incomplete fracture which can generally be repaired with a little rest and relaxation, but this isn’t always the case and if you are involved in a serious accident then you could sustain a complete fracture which could leave you with bone fragments that have completely separated.

If you do sustain a complete fracture then you could find that the rehabilitation process is quite long and a great deal of medical treatment is required, and this can be quite expensive. If you find yourself in this situation then you may consider a claim for compensation to cover any costs that you have incurred.

What are some common examples of complete fracture claims?

You can sustain a complete fracture in a number of ways, but they are generally the result of a substantial impact or accident and some common examples of this include:

  • Trips and falls
  • Accidents caused by poor lighting
  • Accidents caused by faulty machinery
  • Injuries sustained through a lack of training
  • Injuries caused by a fall from a height.

Who can I claim against?

In any instance of a workplace accident that is not your fault, you can make a claim against your employer if you feel that their negligence has directly led to your injury. It’s the responsibility of your employer, by law, to ensure that you are able to work in a safe and secure environment and if you feel that they have overlooked several health and safety regulations, or that they have failed to provide you with adequate safety equipment or training then you could consider making a compensation claim against them.
