There are many different types of fracture at work claims and these types of injury are commonplace in the field of personal injury law.
Some working environments present a greater risk of sustaining a fracture injury than others. However, if you consider the amount of tripping, slipping and falling hazards there are in any given working environment then it is obvious to see how easily fractures happen. These risks are heightened when your employer has failed to implement the necessary health and safety conditions.
A fractured bone may sound like a mild ailment but there are lots of complex breaks which have serious health implications for people.
Everyday tasks can be limited and working can be difficult or impossible. For these aspects of your life, you may be able to claim compensation in the form of loss of earnings and/or loss of amenity.
All employers have a duty of care to their staff and must adhere to health and safety procedures outlined by the Health and Safety Executive. If these requirements are not met and you suffer an injury as a result then you have a right to pursue a fracture at work claim.
