Compensation for broken bones in an office

Dealing with a broken bone or a fracture can be an incredibly painful process and it’s often one that requires a great deal of rest and rehabilitation. Depending on where you have broken your bone and the circumstances which surround your break you could find that you require anything from three weeks to three months rehabilitation – or even longer – and in these circumstances it can have a direct impact on your finances.

Being left out of pocket can be very traumatising, especially in the current economic climate and in many cases it can be hard to get back into work after a long period away. If you do find yourself in this situation then you may consider a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred throughout the process.

Who could be responsible for any broken bones I sustain in the office?

In general, office injuries are either the responsibility of another employee or even your employer if the appropriate safety precautions haven’t been taken within the workplace. Any injuries that you sustain in the office environment through a lack of appropriate safety procedures or even a lack of the necessary safety equipment and training could be the direct fault of your employer and as such you may consider a compensation claim here.

Where could I sustain these injuries?

There are a number of different areas where you could potentially sustain injuries of this type and these include:

  • Injuries incurred from falling objects
  • Injuries sustained in slips and trips
  • Injuries sustained in stairwell falls
  • Injuries sustained through faulty machinery
  • Injuries caused by the negligence of another employee.
