If you have suffered a fractured leg or arm, it’s likely you’ll make a full recovery and be back on your feet in no time at all. But what about a more serious injury requiring metal plates? Compound or comminuted fractures, where bones stick out through the skin or are shattered into several pieces, may require metal plates in order to aid proper healing, and this type of surgery can be painful. If you’ve suffered an injury requiring metal plates, how did your accident occur? Perhaps you were injured at work, and believe somebody else is to blame for your accident? If so, get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline’s expert personal injury advisors for confidential, no-obligation advice on your situation; you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
Heavy machinery is one of the most common causes of serious workplace fractures. Unguarded machinery with moving belts or rollers could trap arms and hands, causing crush injuries and compound fractures that require specialist medical treatment or surgery. Unfortunately, with these types of injuries, chronic pain and mobility problems may continue to affect you in the future.
Who caused your accident?
If you’re unable to return to work due to chronic pain or have been forced to cut back your hours after your accident, you and your family could be affected financially. But who’s to blame for your accident? If health and safety breaches occur and your employer has taken a negligent approach to the health and safety of their workers, they could be held liable for your injuries. What do we mean by negligence?
- Failure to provide training for staff
- Failing to maintain equipment, machinery and tools to a safe standard
- Unsafe working conditions
- Breaches of health and safety regulations – such as not carrying out risk assessments
If you have been injured as a result of your employer’s negligence, let us come to the rescue. Our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so you have nothing to lose by getting in touch to find out if you’re eligible to make a claim.
