Have you suffered a lifting injury in Calderdale?
Being injured in an accident you didn’t cause is bad enough, but being injured in an accident that could have been avoided if you had received better training, can be even worse.

This includes being able to lift and carry properly in the workplace. If you have suffered a lifting injury in Calderdale, call Accident Advice Helpline today.
If you have to lift and carry in the workplace, it is important to know how to. One might be forgiven for thinking that lifting and carrying is straightforward, but there are certain rules and regulations that should be adhered to. You employer should ensure that you are aware of these procedures and that you can work within their confines.
Being the victim of a lifting injury in Calderdale, you will want to know if you can make a successful personal injury claim. Accident Advice Helpline is here to ensure you have the right personal injury advice and can act on your behalf, to secure the right level of compensation.
My training was incomplete
Lifting and handling in the workplace comes with rules, regulations and guidelines. Failure to work to these could be considered your fault, but what if you were unaware of them or had not received the correct training.
Every year in the United Kingdom, thousands of people are injured in lifting accidents because their level of training was not up to par. Your employer has a duty of care to ensure your training is up-to-date, including regular refresher courses if needs be. Failing to provide this is a failure in your employer’s duty of care and can constitute negligence.
If you have sustained a lifting injury and were without the proper training, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim.
