    Lifting injury in Havering


    If you lift heavy or bulky objects at work, you are at risk of injuring yourself. For various reasons, it is often impossible to completely eliminate this risk. However, your employer has a duty to keep it to a minimum. If they fail to do so, and you suffer an injury as a result, you could be entitled to compensation.

    Claiming compensation for a lifting injury in Havering

    If you decide to make a claim, the trained claims advisors at Accident Advice Helpline should be your first port of call. We will be able to investigate your accident and advise you on your prospects of making a successful claim. If you have a strong claim, we will be able to start the claims process on your behalf.

    Apportioning the blame in a lifting injury claim

    If your employer accepts responsibility for your lifting injury in Havering, your chances of obtaining compensation are high. However, if your employer denies liability, or you were partly responsible for your injury, you may find it more difficult to obtain the compensation you deserve. In the event you were partly to blame for your injury, we can fight for a split liability settlement, where your compensation award will reflect the extent to which you played a part in causing your accident. For example, if you were 50% at fault for your lifting injury, we will aim to secure you at least 50% of the compensation you would have received had your employer been wholly to blame.

    Meeting the deadlines for a lifting injury claim

    You must usually make your lifting injury claim within three years of the date of your accident. After this time, your claim will become statute barred, meaning that you will not be able to take it to court.

    If you would like to discuss your eligibility to claim compensation for your lifting injury in Havering, please contact us as soon as possible. Simply call our 24/7 Freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 or call 0333 500 0993 from your mobile.
