Despite health and safety being, supposedly at a premium rate, there are still thousands of accidents occurring every year in the workplace. They range in severity, from tripping and getting a shock, to serious injuries resulting in the loss of a body part. These accidents tend to happen in the manufacturing industry where heavy machinery is involved, but you would be surprised at how many people break or lose toes, through something falling or being dropped on their foot, or their foot being run over by a vehicle used in the workplace.
Compensation for your toes falls into two categories; the damage to the toes themselves and any loss of earning and costs. The first part is dependent on the accident report and the initial examination at a hospital, as well as any further medical examinations you may have to undergo with an independent advisor as decreed by the company you are making a claim against. The second can be judged by a court, but as few cases reach court due to the cost, your solicitor will be able to advise you on a satisfactory amount. If you would like a closer indication of what compensation you may be able to receive, our claims calculator may be able to help you understand what others have received for their injuries.
Every case is different because it could be different toes that are injured, such as your small and big toes, but as of 2013, these were the average compensation payout for injuries suffered to the toes in the workplace.
- A simple fracture or strain where you fully recover within six months; £3500 maximum
- Fractures with complications that takes longer than six months to heal; £3500-£6200
- A crush fracture that needs surgery and could lead to both scarring and prolonged pain; £6200-£12300
- Loss of one or more toes where amputation has been the only option; £20,000-£37,000
The five toes we have on each foot contain bones known as phalanges, as well as having attendant tendons and ligaments. Any one of these can be injured. If you suffer any form of injury to your toes in the workplace, then you can claim compensation. Never shrug off the injury, get it checked out in a hospital, so the full extent of the injury is fully documented as this report will be needed for your claim.
Here are a few common injuries that you may find in your toes:
- Bunion Surgery
- Hallux Abducto Valgus
- Capsulitis of the Second Toe
- Claw Toe
- Hallux Rigidus
- Mallet Toe
- Sesamoid Injury
- Tailor’s Bunion
- Fractured & Broken Toes
- Fractured & Broken Metatarsal
- Turf Toe
In our initial consultation, it will not be necessary at this stage to disclose a full story about your injury. We will be able to gain a full picture by asking you a few simple questions to allow us to indicate your claim eligibility and give you an estimated value of compensation. At this stage, we will go through the legal proceedings of a claim to suggest whether we may need evidence from a medical report, depending on how long ago you discovered your toe injury.
Your first course of action is to contact a solicitor who specialises in personal injury claims in the workplace as soon as you are able. He will work on your behalf to secure the best possible compensation payout you can expect depending on the severity of your injuries and will guide you every step of the way.
