    Broken toes

    Lift from the knees

    Sometimes when carrying objects, we find that they are just too heavy – regardless of whether you lift from the knees or not. In situations like this, you could end up with some serious injuries such as a strained back, pulled shoulder muscles. If you drop the item, then you could be looking at broken toes and/or feet.

    Accidents such as these are not always the fault the fault of the people being hurt, sometimes it is the fault of another party such as an employer.

    Workplace accidents are very common, but there are things an employer has to do to ensure things like broken toes do not happen.

    If an employee is expected to lift or move heavy objects as a part of their duties, or works in an environment where foot injuries may be an issue (some factories and building sites, for example) then the employer has a duty to provide protective footwear.

    Injuries such as broken toes can be seriously detrimental, and affect you for some time. If your job requires a lot of walking around, then you are most likely going to be off until you are able to walk on it properly.

    In more serious cases, you may not be able to return to that job at all. Losing your job, especially through injury, is no laughing matter and who knows how long it will be before you find another?

    Help is at hand

    Compensation lawyers from Accident Advice Helpline can help you to receive compensation and not just for your injury itself.

    Loss of earnings and projected losses, are taken into account by the courts when deciding how much compensation, if any, should be awarded.

    Provided certain conditions are met, you could be entitled to file a personal injury claim – with Accident Advice Helpline lawyers in your corner; and on a no win no fee** basis.

    The criteria, for obtaining the help of a no win no fee** lawyer, are…

    • The accident must be the fault of someone else (such as an employer neglecting to provide safety shoes/boots)
    • No more than three years must have passed between the accident and the claim (there are some exceptions, such as industrial disease – please ask us for confirmation)
    • You need to have had medical help/advice following your accident (in the case of broken toes, this is pretty much  a given)

    If you are not sure, you can use our thirty second test or give us a call.

    If you feel that you have a valid claim, then call us today – we look forward to taking your call!
