Compensation for an Avulsion fracture at work

Compensation claims in the workplace are something that we commonly deal with, mainly as injuries have been caused as a result of direct negligence on behalf of the employer, and a clear lack of the appropriate health and safety guidelines. Fractures are perhaps one of the most commonly occurring injuries within the workplace and we deal with a range of fracture compensation claims on a regular basis, but perhaps one of the most serious types of fracture that we deal with is an avulsion fracture.

Avulsion fractures occur when an impact has been so severe that it has caused fragments of the bone to tear away from the regular mass and this can be incredibly painful to the victim, in addition to taking a great deal of time to fix. The rehabilitation process associated with avulsion fractures can be long and expensive, and if you do find yourself in this situation then you may consider a compensation claim.

How could I sustain an Avulsion fracture?

There are a number of different instances in the workplace which could leave you with an avulsion fracture, some common examples of where you could sustain this type of fracture include:

  • Injuries involving faulty or poorly maintained equipment
  • Injuries which occur on the production line
  • Injuries which occur on a construction site
  • Injuries caused by a trip, slip or fall from a height
  • Injuries caused by items which have been dropped from a height.

Who could I consider claiming against for this type of fracture?

If you have sustained an avulsion fracture through the negligence of another person then you can make a claim against anyone who you feel has been negligent towards you and in general if your injury has happened in the workplace then this will be your employer.
