Have you had an accident and suffered a broken leg whilst at work? If this happened through no fault of your own then you can claim personal injury compensation.
Your workplace should feel safe. You have some responsibility in this. You should ensure that you don’t put your colleagues at risk by your behaviour. Accidents at work are not alway your employers fault.
Make sure you keep up to date with safety regulations and abide by them. Report anything that you think could lead to an accident promptly to your employer. In this way you can protect yourself and others from injury.
You’ve had a broken leg whilst at work
You may have done all you can to stay safe at work but nevertheless the worst has happened through no fault of your own. A broken leg whilst at work can be caused by a trip or fall. Perhaps you work on a construction site and you’ve fallen from height due to lack of safety equipment. Faulty scaffolding may have caused you to fall or something left in a gangway has caused you to trip.
You may have had a broken leg whilst at work in an office. Trailing cables may have caused you to fall awkwardly and break your leg. A spillage in a cafe may have caused your broken leg at work. Busy kitchens need to be kept obstacle free and spillages mopped up promptly.
