    Injury solicitor in County Durham


    Do you need to find an injury solicitor in County Durham to assist you with launching a personal injury claim for a warehouse manual handling injury you’ve sustained? If you do, perhaps you should consider the no win no fee services that we offer here at Accident Advice Helpline on a nationwide basis?

    Much of the work carried out in the warehousing and distribution centre industries has now been automated. But there are certain tasks that still require manual labour and it is these tasks when carried out on a regular basis that can lead to manual handling repetitive strain injuries such as rotator cuff injury.

    Rotator cuff injury

    Rotator cuff injury comes about when workers have to regularly reach above shoulder level to either pick goods from a high shelf or store them away. It is the employer’s duty of care to their personnel to ensure that risk assessments are taken out covering all of the manual tasks that workers are asked to perform. A risk assessment for regularly lifting products above shoulder level ought to recommend that manual handling aids are used to prevent injury wherever possible.

    If you’ve suffered a rotator cuff injury, or any other type of repetitive strain injury come to that, that you believe your employer to be responsible for, Accident Advice Helpline, as your injury solicitor, will help you to launch a personal injury claim with a view to obtaining appropriate financial compensation.

    Just how much compensation a rotator cuff injury would warrant will depend on the severity of the injury and any impact it may have on your working and/or social life. What you will need however is some sort of proof from your GP or any hospital you might have attended, to corroborate the seriousness of the injury and its implications.
