Loss of limbs can occur in serious accidents. Such injuries could be caused by motor vehicle accidents, machinery accidents, or working in dangerous areas such as building sites or factories. Losing a limb is a difficult thing to deal with and if the accident was not your fault and could have been prevented it can be even more frustrating and upsetting.
Serious injuries at work
If you are involved in a serious injury at work then you could be entitled to receive compensation. At work you expect to be safe and that your health and safety has been considered in relation to any tasks you may be doing. When an accident does occur that is not your fault it can be very upsetting especially when the injuries you sustain are serious and will affect you for the rest of your life.
Losing a leg in a work accident is a horrendous thing to have to go through. At Accident Advice Helpline we want to help you to claim the compensation you deserve if the accident was not your fault. We have 15 years’ experience in the industry and a team of accident and injury experts who can offer you free no-obligation advice when you call.
Your employer has a responsibility to ensure that you are safe at work. This includes ensuring any machinery is regularly serviced and complies with health and safety regulations. Employees should have correct protective and safety wear, should be trained properly, and processes should be in place to minimize risks involved with the type of work going on.
Implications of losing a limb
Losing a leg at work can have a huge impact on a person’s life both at work and out of work. The injured person may experience a range of difficulties in coming to terms with the loss of a limb as well as facing the changes they may need to make and adjust to in living without a limb.
Costs of medical care and facilities can put pressure on individuals as well as their families so it can be very beneficial to seek compensation to cover some of the costs that the individual may now have.
Accident Advice Helpline understands the financial difficulties that can present themselves when you have been injured and our no win, no fee* policy can help as there are no upfront costs and nothing to pay if your claim is not successful.
