In this case study, we are going to look at the case of Mr D (whose name we have shortened for reasons of privacy). Mr D was working as a self-employed contractor for a chemical company, Croda Chemicals. He was working on removing a pump from the ground floor of his plant when his forearm was hit by a section of pipe that had fallen from possibly two stories above him, breaking his forearm upon impact.
Self Employed Contractor Accident at Work Claims
Is it harder to claim compensation for a personal injury if you are self-employed? A common misconception is that if you are a subcontractor who has an accident at work or a self-employed contractor who experienced an accident at work that you cannot claim compensation for your injury. Self-employed people are responsible for their own safety in a workplace where they are visiting. However, it is possible to sue for compensation if you have a personal injury and are self-employed if you can prove that your accident was partly due to the negligent action or inaction of another party.
As a self-employed subcontractor who experienced an accident at work due to a falling pipe, Mr D was not responsible for his accident so was entitled to claim fractured forearm compensation from the company Croda Chemicals where, as a subcontractor, he experienced an accident at work. Claiming compensation for a work-related injury when you are self-employed can be a complicated process, so it is essential that you hire an experienced personal injury solicitor to represent you in your case.
Fractured Forearm Symptoms
Despite what your friends may tell you, a serious forearm fracture, a broken wrist or a broken arm are all very similar injuries. Broken or fractured forearm symptoms can include: bruising and swelling, severe pain and tenderness, the arm or wrist being an odd shape, bleeding or in severe cases the bone protruding through the skin. Your forearm is made of two bones, the radius, and the ulna, with most adult fractures occuring on both bones. Ulna fractures to the wrist can also occur, and if the serious forearm fracture is not effectively treated as soon as possible radius and ulna fracture complications are a risk.
Fractured forearm recovery time is usually between 4-8 weeks. Most fractured wrist injuries are treated by putting the arm in plaster and allowing time for the bones to knit. This NHS guide on a Broken Arm, or Broken Wrist has more information.
The Fractured Forearm Compensation Case and Settlement
As a result of suffering from a broken forearm, Mr D was unable to work for several weeks. This, of course, meant that he suffered a loss of business, which subsequently resulted in a loss of earnings during his fractured forearm recovery time. Mr D’s personal injury solicitor negotiated a [£32,306.64] fractured forearm compensation settlement for him. As well as damages for his pain suffering and loss of amenity, the settlement also covered his loss of income during the period that he was unable to work.
No Win No Fee Solicitors
Have you suffered a serious forearm fracture or a broken forearm in an accident that wasn’t your fault? If you would like to claim fractured forearm compensation then you may want to consider using a no win no fee solicitor. This means that your personal injury solicitor will offer you a Conditional Fee Arrangement (CFA), also known as a no win no fee service. This means you will only pay your solicitor’s fee if you win your claim for personal injury compensation, meaning there is no financial risk to you. With no win no fee, there is nothing to pay upfront, which makes it a more affordable option, which is especially helpful if you have lost income as a result of your injuries.
