Lifting accidents

If you have been involved in a work accident and suffered a back injury or any other type of injury whilst lifting at work you could be entitled to injury compensation. Our specialist Solicitors are highly experienced in lifting accident claims and the injuries sustained as a result of manual handling accidents.

As an employee your employers have a duty of care towards you to ensure that they minimise the risk of manual handling by ensuring that they provide you a number of things, to include:

Manual handling training

Manual handling training should consist of a lot more than the usual little printed handbook most employees receive when they commence their new job. Our specialist lifting injury Solicitors can advise you whether the training you received was sufficient for your employments. Even if it were you may still have a claim for Personal Injury and be entitled to compensations.

Reduce the level of manual handling to the lowest level

In order to reduce the risk of injury whilst lifting at work your employer must reduce the level of manual handling to the lowest level possible. This can be achieved by splitting the load between two or more people, providing a trolley or pump truck, reducing the amount to be moved each time and most importantly providing adequate breaks between tasks to ensure you do not over strain your back.

Provide equipment

The easiest way to stop you from sustaining injury is for your employers to provide the appropriate work equipment. More often than not the failure to supply a simply trolley leads to the most severe injuries.

At Simply Lawyers our specialist lifting accident Solicitors are here to assist you and ensure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible.

Some of the things we are able to claim for include:

  • Loss of earnings
  • Private healthcare rehabilitation
  • Specialist experts reports on your injuries.
  • Disadvantage on the labour market
  • Cost of care
