About heavy lifting accidents

When working in a factory or in any other profession that demands manual labour, you can be at risk of suffering an injury. If you feel any pain after lifting, carrying or moving a heavy object, you may have damaged your back or neck.

There are several simple ways to avoid a lifting injury, such as bending the knees instead of the back and moving as close to the object as possible, but if an employer didn't discuss these methods or provide adequate manual handling training, then they are liable for your injury.

Who is responsible?

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act, employers have a legal duty of care to their employees. This means that your employer is legally bound to protect you and other members of staff from workplace accidents to the best of their ability. If your injury wasn't your fault and you adhered to guidelines provided by your employer, you are able to claim compensation.

How YouClaim can help

Our team has a great track record for seeing work accident claims through to a successful conclusion. This means we have expert knowledge of personal injury law and know what needs to be done to secure you the compensation you deserve. Compensation can be used to cover time off work, pay for medical treatment and any other associated expenses.

When you have been injured, you should not have to worry about finances; your focus should be on getting back to the condition you were in before the accident. Our solicitors can help you by providing advice and representation throughout the claims process.
