Making a manhandling accident claim may seem to be overwhelming, but with the right support, you can get the outcome that you want. Manhandling accidents are far more common than you think. It may be that you have not been shown how to pick things up and move them properly. You may not be aware that your employer is obliged to provide you with training in manual handling as part of their health and safety policy.
Without the right training, you could injure your back while picking something up if you do not know how to do it properly. The item could be too heavy and you are not given any assistance to move it. It could be that you have picked up an item incorrectly and have dropped it, injuring your hand or foot. There are many possibilities when it comes to manhandling accidents. It is very important that you do not dismiss your accident as insignificant – it can have a great impact on your life.
What should I do?
Accident Advice Helpline should be your first call when you have been injured in an accident like this. As a specialist law firm, your manhandling accident claim will be in safe hands throughout the entire process. We have a team of advisers that can be contacted on our free 24-hour helpline. When you talk to them, you need to have all the details of your injury and accident on hand so that they can determine if your claim is valid. They will then explain to you how the claims process works and will pass your claim on to one of our personal injury solicitors that work on a ‘no win, no fee*’ basis.
It is important that you call as soon as possible after the accident has occurred so that we can get your claim started straight away. This will help ensure that any financial compensation will be paid quickly and when you need it most.
Why would I need compensation?
The advisers at Accident Advice Helpline will explain to you why compensation is so important. Your accident could have left you unable to work or you may find yourself looking for a different type of job because of your injury. If this is the case, then you could find that your bank balance begins to take a battering as you try to keep up with the bills when your income has dropped.
Compensation is designed to make up for any loss of earnings and any other out-of-pocket expenses that you have incurred as a direct result of the accident. Accident Advice Helpline was established to help people to get the justice that they deserve when they have been victims of an accident that was somebody else’s fault. There is no need for you to struggle when there is help available. All you need to do is make a phone call free to 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone and your life could begin to get back to normal again.
