Leg injury claims
Leg injuries can be a great inconvenience, and they can also create a negative impact on your lifestyle as well as your employment. If left untreated, leg injuries can often lead to ligament and muscle damage, fractures and even broken bones. In order to prevent such serious injury, it’s essential that you get medical treatment as soon as possible.
The femur (thigh bone) as well as the tibia and fibula (shin bones) are the three main parts of the leg that are highly susceptible to damage in an accident. Especially when in the workplace, there are a number of ways to damage your leg. Accidents such as falling from a height, slipping on oil at a construction site and suffering injury though the strain of lifting heavy items are all common ways that your legs can become damaged. From shopkeepers to teachers, every employer is legally bound to provide a secure working environment as well as adhere to health & safety legislation.
Thousands of people every year damage their legs in road accidents, with motorcyclists being especially vulnerable on the roads. You can also damage your legs playing sport such as football, rugby and ice skating, with broken ankles and twisted knees making up a large proportion of ailments.
A serious leg injury will certainly leave you partially or completely immobile. Not only will you have to take time off work, but being unable to move will also effect your family and social life. Depending on the severity of your leg injury, other parts of your body could also be affected too.
