Lifting Accidents During Work
We have over 50 years experience of dealing with lifting accidents caused during work.
Your employers have a legal duty to look after your safety at work. They must ensure that you do not lift above the recommended levels of weight. The weight is not the only consideration when lifting and you should contact us for specialist advice in relation to the circumstances in which you were lifting. We can advise you as to whether this can give rise to the risk of injury.
Did you know that manual handling accidents make up a larger proportion of accidents than any others at work but with proper risk assessments and control measures by employers these are easily preventable. We deal with accidents for all manual workers, health service workers, factory and construction workers etc.
Most people are concerned about claiming against their employers however you don’t go to work to get injured and your employers have insurance cover that pays out any claims on their behalf. No letter or communication will be sent until we have discussed your claim in a face to face meeting or by telephone at a time convenient for you.
