Manual handling accidents are one of the most common causes of injury in the workplace. Lifting accidents are not limited to building sites, warehouses and factories. Any employee whose job involves lifting or manual handling of any kind is potentially at risk of a lifting injury, whether they work in an office, a school, a restaurant or a shop.
We are experts in lifting injury compensation and can deal with this type of injury at work claim under a no win no fee agreement and we always strive to maximise the damages we recover for our clients.
Back injuries are very common and can be the most serious, causing severe pain and sometimes total incapacity, leading to potentially long absences from work. Lifting injury compensation is therefore vital in order to recover not only compensation for the injury sustained in the accident, but also the cost of specialist medical treatment and the loss of income from an extensive period of absence from work.
An employer has a duty to minimise the risk of lifting and manual handling injuries by carrying out risk assessments and ensuring that whenever manual lifting cannot be avoided, employees are adequately trained to lift items in the correct manner.
However, if your employer has failed to take care of your health and safety and provide you with the necessary training in the safe method of working, then you may be eligible to make a lifting injury claim.
We want to help you overcome the injuries and difficulties you face by making a thoroughly professional, efficient and effective lifting injury compensation claim on your behalf.
