Open wounds are very commonly caused by accidents in the workplace. A wound is an injury to the body’s skin and when we use the term open wound we mean that the skin has been cut, torn or punctured by something usually very obvious and bleeding. You can however also get a ‘Contusion’ which is a closed wound from a blunt force trauma such as a body part being crushed damaging underneath the skins surface. Talk to us today if you’ve been an accident victim in Woking and it wasn’t your fault.
There are also different types of wounds you could get, the best is without doubt a clean wound showing no organisms in it and will heal quickly without any problems. You could however get an infected wound which has been contaminated with organisms and is now red, painful and oozing puss, if a number of organisms are present in the wound this could lead to a colonised wound.
The treatment for wounds depends on where the wound is, the type of wound and the depth of the wound. Treatments include stitches and pain relief. If it is an infected wound then you would also need pain relief and antibiotics.
If someone sustains an infected or serious wound in their workplace by no fault of their own then they could be eligible to make an accident at work claim for compensation.
You may think that a simple wound is not worthy of making a claim but think again. If your accident was not your fault and you have needed medical treatment for your injuries leaving you in pain and unable to work, then why should you not get back some of the lost earnings and extra expenses you have incurred due to your injury.
