Foot injury claims

Foot injuries at work include crush injuries from heavy equipment, fork-lift vehicles, warehouse trucks and falling objects as well as slips and trips, which account for a high percentage of non-fatal accidents in UK workplaces.

Soft tissue injuries, sprains, torn ligaments and fractures to the toes and feet can have a marked impact on the life of employees.  Issues with mobility can lead to absence from work, domestic and social difficulties and lead to further musculoskeletal problems. The injured party may be unable to drive for a significant period.  

Legislation in the UK requires all employers to take appropriate steps to secure the workplace and make sure working practices do not expose employees to unnecessary risk of injury.

Your employer may have been negligent if they:

  • Failed to properly risk assess a task
  • Failed to provide appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Failed to ensure that equipment was safe to use
  • Failed to provide appropriate training
  • Failed to take appropriate steps to make the workplace safe

Whatever the severity of your foot injury, if you have been affected, call Work Claims Bureau today on to see how our foot injury claims specialists can help you claim on a No Win, No Fee Basis.
