About Manual Handling Compensation Claims
Common types of manual handling accident claims involve employees being asked to lift goods which are too heavy for them. Sometimes the employee does not even know how much the item weighs or they are not provided with the correct equipment to help them. Other types of manual handling accidents involve pushing or pulling trucks and crates.
Your employer has a legal obligation to provide you with a clean and safe working environment, proper equipment and also to ensure that all their staff have been fully trained on all aspects of their job. This includes being fully trained in health and safety at work. If they fail in their duty to look after you whilst you are working for them then they can be held to account by the law. No one should ever have to go to work and suffer an injury or death.
We understand that you may feel uncomfortable about making a manual handling claim against your employer, particularly as you may have concerns over job safety. The fact is that your employer cannot dismiss you if you are injured due to their negligence in the workplace and they must have insurance in place to cover them. They won’t have to pay you compensation themselves.
Our experienced solicitors can help you with a wide range of manual handling claims such as:
- Heavy lifting of goods over the relevant safe weight
- Repetitive manual handling
- Pushing or pulling defective trolleys
- Carrying of unsafe items or materials
