Arm and Leg Fracture Claims

Fracture injuries can occur across all lines of work in the UK. Heavy machinery, slips, trips and falls from height can lead to broken or crushed limbs. These injuries can require extensive treatment and rehabilitation. Injured workers can face long periods of uncertainty and lost earnings while they recover.

Employers have a responsibility to take steps in making the workplace secure and safe for employees and visitors. Your employer should have a policy of liability insurance to provide cover in the event that an employee is injured in the course of their duties.

Here are some reasons why, if you suffer a fractured limb injury in work, you could be entitled to claim compensation:

  • Failure to assess a risk in the workplace
  • Failure to provide proper training
  • Failure to provide adequate personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Failure to make sure the working area was safe
  • Failure to ensure that work equipment or machinery was safe
  • Failure to provide safe and competent fellow employees.

Work Claims Bureau can help you through every step of the claims process, and where appropriate, put you in touch with the best medico-legal experts, care and rehabilitation providers.

Whatever the severity of your fracture injury, Work Claims Bureau have over 50 years’ combined experience in helping clients who have been injured in the course of their duties at work. We will ensure that we use our expertise to guide you through all stages of a personal injury claim, from submitting the claim to your employer’s insurer, obtaining quality medical evidence, through liability discussions and litigation to negotiating settlement.
