Being injured at work is something which can usually be prevented – that is, if your employer takes the health and safety of their staff seriously. Unfortunately, hundreds of workers are injured in the UK every year due to employer negligence, and if you’ve suffered leg injuries in the workplace, you could find you’re eligible to claim personal injury compensation.
Your employer has a duty to ensure your safety at work – this means they need to follow health and safety regulations, ensure equipment and machinery is safe to use and inspected regularly and provide you with any equipment needed to carry out your job without risk of injury. Has your employer failed on any of these counts? Then we could help you claim a personal injury settlement which could compensate you for your pain and suffering. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we’re proud to have helped hundreds of workers claim the compensation they deserve, and we could help you too.
What kind of injuries have you suffered?
When it comes to leg injuries in the workplace, you may have been lucky enough to escape with minor injuries or you could have been seriously hurt. Leg injuries could include:
- Broken bones
- Crush injuries
- Cuts and bruises
- Severe lacerations
- Injuries leading to amputation
If you feel somebody else is to blame for your injuries – for example if you fell from scaffolding at work and you didn’t have any safety equipment such as a harness – you could claim personal injury compensation. Leg injuries have the potential to happen in any workplace, from a construction site to an office, so you should always be aware of your own personal safety and report any problems or concerns to your manager. If they fail to act, they could be held liable if you’re injured. Get in touch with us within three years of your accident and we’ll help you claim personal injury compensation – our lawyers specialise in personal injury claims and we work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
With talk of ‘compensation culture’ sweeping the UK, many people could be put off the idea of making a personal injury claim. At the end of the day, if you have been injured at work and somebody else – such as your employer or a colleague – is to blame, you’re perfectly entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation. You can call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 to discuss your concerns and get advice from our expert personal injury advisors today – it’s free to call and with years of industry experience, you know you can trust us.
