    Weightlifting injury advice


    Calling Accident Advice Helpline for weightlifting injury advice might be your only option if you have been injured through no fault of your own. Weightlifting is a specialist sport and it should only be done by those who have had or who are having the appropriate training. An accident can occur if you have not been shown how to do something properly, and you could end up injured. However, it is also possible that you have been injured while attempting to lift weights at your local gym. When you are doing this, is there staff at the gym that should show you how to do it without hurting yourself?

    If you do not have the right information and you are injured, you may be able to make a personal injury claim against those who are responsible.

    What are the benefits of getting weightlifting injury advice?

    When you call Accident Advice Helpline, you can find out more about how you can benefit from making a personal injury claim. The first way is to put right the wrong. If you have been given incorrect information and training while you are weightlifting, then the same thing could be happening to other people. By making a stand and putting in a personal injury claim, you could help to change this because those responsible will need to face up to what has happened and do something about it.

    The next benefit of calling Accident Advice Helpline for weightlifting injury advice is financial compensation. You may wonder if you are actually entitled to this, but there is a possibility you can claim financial compensation for expenses and losses. Expenses can be anything from the cost of your prescriptions to the cost of healthcare such as physiotherapy, while losses will include loss of earnings while you are recovering from your accident.

    Will I really suffer loss of earnings?

    You need to be realistic about this situation. It is a possibility that you will suffer a loss of earnings because if you have to take time off work because of your accident then your employer is under no obligation to give you full pay. When you call Accident Advice Helpline for weightlifting injury advice, a member of our team will explain all of this to you. You will more than likely find yourself on statutory sick pay, and this is only a small proportion of what you would normally earn.
