Bone fractures in the workplace are surprisingly common. Whilst they are mostly due to a genuine accident, there are many cases where they occur due to negligence of others or an unsafe work environment. Whatever the cause, breaking a bone can be a very painful and traumatic experience. The recovery times can vary depending on the severity and location of the fracture but in the worst cases, the damage can be life altering. Some broken bones heal easily, but others can lead to further effects such as damage to the surrounding tissues and organs meaning that further surgeries and rehabilitation therapy may be required.
At Injury Lawyers UK we have a lot of experience in dealing with claims regarding workplace accidents. We understand the effects that a broken bone can cause not only physically but also emotionally. The recovery can cause great stress and effort not only on your part but also on your families.
Employers have a duty to implement the correct health and safety measures to protect staff and visitors from experiencing a workplace accident. If we feel you have a case for a claim, we always strive to get the maximum amount of compensation which not only takes into consideration the pain and suffering you have endured, but also the ongoing treatment, emotional trauma, and loss of earnings.
