Do you want to know how to help someone with a broken leg?
Not all of us are good in a crisis but it’s useful to have some basic first aid knowledge so you can help in an emergency. If you’re unable to offer any practical medical aid then at least you can call the emergency services. It’s not a good idea to try and diagnose an injury but it should be apparent by the demeanour of the injured party, that they are in need of medical help. A broken limb will usually be apparent and often the victim will be suffering from shock so try and stay calm and to keep them calm with reassurance that professional help is on the way.
How to help someone with a broken leg in the workplace
Don’t attempt to move the victim. Wait for the emergency services. If you saw what happened and how they came to break their leg then have a look around and see what evidence you can gather about the circumstances.
If you think the accident may have been caused by neglect on the part of the employer then make some notes or take some photos. These may be very useful if the injured person decides to claim personal injury compensation again in the future.
Accident Advice Helpline knows how to help someone with a broken leg
If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault then you may be able to claim compensation. Personal injury compensation is your legal entitlement. Your accident must have happened within the last three years and you must have received medical attention for your injuries. If you’ve suffered a broken leg then you will have been seen by hospital doctors.
Claiming personal injury compensation is not something you can do yourself. The law is complicated and your claim would be unlikely to succeed. You need the expertise of a personal injury law firm.
