Lifting injuries are among the most common traumas employees can suffer in a workplace environment. The location of the incident is not relevant, as it could occur in anywhere from a hairdresser’s salon to a factory warehouse.
The object itself is redundant too, as your torn back or legs will not distinguish between a heavy box containing hair straighteners and another containing plywood.
All that matters for you now is that the accident which sparked the injury occurred as a result of the carelessness or negligence of another, whether another member of staff or the business as a whole.
If this is true for your incident – and if you have suffered from a lifting injury in Hillingdon within the last three years – then Accident Advice Helpline are the team to get in touch with.
Lifting injury in Hillingdon
The good news is that there are laws in place to protect you from injuries in the workplace. Rules ensure that employers have to take responsibility for the welfare and safety of their employees while in the workplace, and minimise the danger from manual handling activities as much as possible.
The bad news is that this doesn’t stop accidents from happening, leading to countless people being injured annually. That is why regulations are also in place to allow you to file manual handling compensation claims in the event of such incidents occurring.
It’s also why Accident Advice Helpline exists to ensure that if you have had a lifting injury in Hillingdon, your case will be dealt with as professionally and effectively as possible.
