When you work in certain jobs you are required to do some lifting. This could be repetitive lifting of small weights on a production line. It could also be less frequent lifting of very heavy weights. Both types of lifting can result in injuries.
You may not realise that your employer is responsible for your health and safety. If you are required to lift anything at work, they should carry out a full risk assessment to identify any hazards and then to put measures in place to make sure that the risks are reduced.
If you have been injured at work whilst lifting something, you may be able to make a personal injury claim. Was there anything that your employer could have done to prevent the accident?
If you are able to prove that your employer was at fault for your injuries and you received medical attention soon after you suffered the injury, you may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation.
