Manual Handling Injury

Overview

Injuries caused through manual handling are extremely common in the workplace. Manual handling injuries can occur when employees are required to lift, carry, lower, push or pull heavy objects. If employees haven’t been properly trained to safely move items then the likelihood of an accident at work is high.

Your employer has a duty of care to look after your well being, through minimising risk, whilst you are in the workplace. Therefore if your job requires manual handling your employer must provide you with the appropriate training and any equipment that you require to do so.

If your employer fails in any way to follow the appropriate health and safety protocols, and you suffer an injury as a consequence, you could be entitled to compensation.

We operate on a No Win, No Fee basis, meaning that there no upfront costs to you. We offer a free initial, no-obligation assessment of your case.
