    Compensation for workplace leg injuries


    We rely on our legs to get us from A to B and without them our mobility is seriously affected. Even minor workplace leg injuries could leave you with a limp that makes getting around without assistance is difficult or painful.

    If you have a physical job, workplace leg injuries could mean you’ll need to look for alternative employment or cut back the hours that you can work, affecting you and your family financially.

    It’s not all doom and gloom though as you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation if you’ve suffered leg injuries in an accident at work. Whether you work in construction or retail, Accident Advice Helpline’s expert personal injury advisers can provide confidential advice and there is never any obligation to go ahead with a claim.

    Lacerations and broken bones

    Leg injuries can be extremely serious – here are just a few of the types of injury we’ve handled claims for since we were established in 2000:

    • Severe lacerations and grazes, often requiring surgery or even amputation
    • Complex and compound fractures
    • Crush injuries where bones are shattered
    • Strains and sprains
    • Loss of limbs

    An accident has the potential to happen in any workplace at any time, but your employer can take steps to protect you at work. If you work in a particularly hazardous industry such as construction or agriculture, safety at work is even more important, as you are statistically more likely to be injured in an accident at work.

    Falls from height, slips and trips, accidents involving machinery or vehicles or even a building collapse could all lead to leg injuries that have the potential to be life-changing. If you’re walking with a limp or need a wheelchair to cover long distances – even if you have suffered minor injuries which have left you with scars on your leg – you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

    How did your accident happen?

    Establishing who is to blame for your accident is how we decide whether you have a viable personal injury claim. Sometimes it’s obvious – for example if scaffolding at work collapses and you fall from height, breaking your leg, then your employer would be at fault for failing to ensure the scaffolding was safe.

    Other times it’s not quite so black and white, but our experienced advisers are here to help. Call Accident Advice Helpline today on 0800 689 0500 and take advantage of our 100% no win, no fee service to get the compensation you deserve for your accident.
