Injury to feet

Personal injury to feet at work or in another accident normally is a result of a blunt trauma. Or you drop something on them! In the workplace especially where there is a pronounced risk of injury to the foot or feet, protective footwear is essential. Health and Safety laws and the rules relating to occupational foot protection vary from country to country, but in general employees are quite protected. In the UK the HSE has strict standards in place on building sites, contractors and site workers can not get on site without their protective boots. It is seen as a part of their standard tools. But seeing as we are humans, somewhere even the strictest of health and safety rules are being flouted. Feet are great, don't drop anything on them!

Off sick with an injury to my foot

If your foot or feet are injured in an accident at work, then you should consider making an accident claim. There are often a few points to prove about the case, but once these are completed and the claim is substantiated, you can find yourself with the right amount of compensation.
