Compensation for a compression fracture at work

Although the workplace is a mecca for a number of different accidents and injuries, there are some injuries in this environment that are far worse than others. Compression fractures generally occur when you have undergone some type of spinal trauma and in many situations they can be far worse than a generic fracture or trauma because they have the ability to leave you with a number of serious and potentially long term injuries.

Injuries in the workplace are often caused through the negligence of an employee or through poor workplace health and safety practices, but regardless of the situation and the circumstances if you have been injured through no fault of your own – and let out of pocket as a result – then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation to cover any additional costs that you have incurred from your injuries. 

How could my workplace leave me with a compression fracture?

There are many different instances and situations in the workplace which could leave you with a compression fracture, some of the most common include:

  • Injuries sustained during a trip or fall
  • Injuries sustained during a fall from a height or off scaffolding or another surface
  • Accidents which occur due to falling objects
  • Accidents caused by poorly lit stairwells and areas
  • Injuries caused by poorly maintained or used machinery.

Who might I be eligible to claim against for compensation?

If you are suffering from a compression fracture then there are a number of people who you could consider a claim against, but most likely you will be looking to claim against your employer if the accident occurred within the workplace. Compression fractures usually occur due to a lack of health and safety practices within the workplace and if you feel that you have been the victim of this, then you could be eligible for a compensation claim.
