Manual Handling Injury Claims

Contrary to popular belief, manual handling injuries do not only occur as the result of lifting and carrying heavy objects; they can also come about when people are required to lower, push or pull heavy or cumbersome items, or when using improper techniques.

If you are asked to move objects as part of your role, your employer is required by law to ensure you have the proper training and equipment to do so safely, and without injury.

However, according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), more than a third of accidents reported to them which result in the injured person’s absence from work for more than three days, are related to manual handling at work.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury as a result of manual handling, whether to your back, neck, upper limbs or feet, contact our specialist accident at work solicitors for advice.

We will use our significant knowledge of UK health and safety law, combined with decades of success in securing high levels of damages for injured workers, to support you with a workplace accident compensation claim.
