    Where to get lifting injury compensation advice

    Lifting injuries may not sound serious, but a manual handling injury actually has the potential to cause considerable pain and disruption in your life. If you have been injured whilst lifting heavy or awkward loads, ask yourself if your employer gave you the training needed to carry out lifting safely. If they didn’t, or if you have been injured due to a colleague’s negligence or faulty equipment, chances are you could make a claim for manual handling injury compensation.

    Accident Advice Helpline has provided lifting injury compensation advice to hundreds of people, helping them get the compensation they deserve after suffering these types of injuries, which usually affect the back, shoulders and sometimes the knees (although other body parts such as the wrists or neck could also be affected).

    What injuries have you suffered?

    Manual handling injuries could include pulled muscles, damage to tendons, herniated or slipped discs in the back, dislocated shoulders or a whole host of other injuries. Whilst some of these injuries may seem minor, the back is connected to the shoulders, arms and lower body, so pain can radiate to other body parts and you may need to take time off work, suffering reduced mobility, if you have been injured. It’s your employer’s responsibility to ensure you have received the necessary training to carry out lifting tasks safely, and that you’re not lifting anything which is too heavy or bulky without proper assistance (i.e. a colleague or specialist lifting equipment).

    If they fail to keep you safe at work and you are injured, Accident Advice Helpline can offer you lifting injury compensation advice that could help you decide whether to go ahead with a personal injury claim.

    Making a compensation claim

    Whether you have suffered a minor lower back injury or a more serious slipped or herniated disc, you could get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline for lifting injury compensation advice in confidence – there is no obligation to proceed with a claim. The majority of people who contact us do decide to go ahead and make a claim though, and they benefit from our 100% no win, no fee* service. So there are no upfront fees to pay, no matter what your financial circumstances.
