A foot injury can be fairly minor, or it could be something that lasts and afflicts you for many years to come. Foot injuries can range from burns, broken bones and crush injuries, all caused in a variety of different ways.
Foot injury compensation can sometimes be paid to the injured person if they can prove that someone else was the cause of their injury. Sometimes this means the person did something that caused it to happen. For example they may have driven their car over the foot of the person with the injury. On the other hand an injury could be caused if someone does not do something. This might sound odd, but it is perfectly possible in terms of health and safety in the workplace.
How can not doing something lead to an injury for you?
Injuries in the workplace are rare, throughout all kinds of different industries. However, it is wise to remember that health and safety apply in all situations. In our example, we have suggested that someone could cause someone else to be hurt as a result of their inaction.
For example, a risk assessment should always be conducted before any particular job is done. This might mean someone has to work at height, or work with tools, or perform any one of a number of other assorted tasks. If they don’t do the risk assessment, or they decide not to put into practice the recommendations the assessment suggests, this might mean you end up being hurt.
