    Where to get manual handling injury compensation advice


    Manual handling injuries are one of the most common types of injuries sustained at work and they are generally caused by lifting things incorrectly or lifting heavy or awkward loads. For example, you could be lifting boxes in a warehouse when you sustain a manual handling injury to your back or shoulder – perhaps your employer hasn’t provided you with manual handling training. If this has happened to you, or if you’ve sustained injuries that were somebody else’s fault, you could get manual handling injury compensation advice on a confidential basis from Accident Advice Helpline, and claim the compensation you deserve.

    How did your accident happen?

    Manual handling injuries are usually the result of lack of training or lifting loads which are too heavy or awkward for one person – for example if lifting equipment is broken. It’s up to your employer to ensure you have the training and equipment necessary to carry out your job without risk of injury, and if you have been injured they could be held liable. Manual handling injuries could include things such as slipped or herniated discs, pulled muscles and lower and upper back injuries.

    Whilst these may not seem serious, it can take time to heal from a back or shoulder injury and that could mean taking time off work to recover, which can affect your earnings. If you’re struggling financially after your accident, seeking manual handling injury compensation advice could be the way forward. You could find out how much compensation you could be entitled to by taking the 30-second test on Accident Advice Helpline’s website today.
