As an employee, your employer has a duty to keep you safe from any possible causes of hazard or harm.
However, unfortunately hundreds of thousands of workers suffer from injuries each year as a result of an accident that was caused by the negligence of their employer.
According to the latest statistics that have been released by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), 45% of workplace accidents last year resulted in injuries to the arms and neck.
So in this article, the Your Accident at Work Claims team provide you with a full guide on how to make a clam for compensation after suffering from a broken arm at work.
Are you entitled to make a broken arm compensation claim?
No matter how serious your arm injury is, if you can prove that the damage was caused by an employer’s failure to protect your welfare then you have a right to make a claim.
However, it is important to note that you are only eligible to make a claim if the incident that led to your injury has occurred within the last three years.
Many workers who have been affected by having their arm broken at work through no fault of their own or unaware that they can claim compensation for the ordeal that they have had to endure.
If you feel as though you may be entitled to launch a claim of your own, then get in touch with the legal specialists here at Your Accident at Work Claims now by calling 0800 01 54321 today.
