Ankle and foot injuries at work - broken ankle & ankle ligament claims

Suffering an ankle or foot injury at work can have a big impact on your daily life as you recover and can even leave you with permanent damage or weakness in some cases as well as lost wages whilst you recover. Whether you sustain a toe injury at work, suffer a fractured foot bone injury at work, badly strain or sprain your ankle or any other type of injury that was caused by someone else or your employer’s negligence, you might be able to claim ankle and foot injury at work compensation for what has happened to you.

All employers are legally obliged to provide a workplace that is safe for their employees to do their job. Part of their responsibility includes assessing potential risks and hazards and putting in place health and safety measures to minimise these and protect workers from suffering avoidable accidents and injuries in the workplace. This also includes ensuring all equipment and machinery in the workplace is properly maintained and in safe working order. Failing to comply with health and safety regulations in any of these areas could mean that your employer is liable for any accidents and resulting injuries that occur, and they may also be prosecuted for breaching the legislation. If you suffer a foot or ankle injury at work because your employer was negligent in their duties, you may be able to claim compensation.
