    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Injury solicitor in Cowbridge


    You can appoint Accident Advice Helpline to act as your injury solicitor in Cowbridge with regard to claiming financial compensation for any personal injury you’ve sustained through no fault of your own. This includes injuries suffered by people that work in the retail trade.

    Repetitive strain injuries in the retail trade

    Most large retailers today use manual handling aids and automation to help with the unloading and storage of products, although shelf stacking is still usually performed manually and it’s here that regular bending and stretching can lead to repetitive strain injury, especially if heavy weights are involved.

    Back pain is one of the most frequent manual handling repetitive strain injuries and the reason is that your back is a complex structure comprising bones, joints, soft tissue and nerves that can easily sustained damage. Because of this complexity it can sometimes be difficult to pinpoint the precise cause of any pain.

    The majority of instances of back pain are not caused by serious damage. Instead it is usually things such as pinched and/or irritated nerves, and small sprains and strains. Back pain can be caused by ordinary everyday activities in the home as well as at work; often gradually developing over a period of time in the form of repetitive strain injury

    The most common causes of back pain include:
