    Lifting injury in Pontrhydyfen


    Personal Injury Solicitors in Pontrhydyfen

    If you have suffered a lifting injury which you feel was the fault of another person, you should be able to claim compensation which will help you through the recovery process. Compensation will help to pay for things like private medical treatment and time off work, so that you are able to better focus on your recovery without having to worry about financial matters.

    Here are some of the reasons you might suffer a lifting injury in Pontrhydyfen, and how you can claim compensation for this.

    Lack of training

    If you work in a job where you are supposed to be lifting heavy items, then you should have plenty of training in advance to help you to know how to stay safe in your job. If your employer has decided not to offer you this training, or the training has been insufficient in some way, you are more likely to have an accident which you should still be able to claim compensation for.

    You may need to provide proof that your training was negligent in some way, so make sure you keep examples.

    Lack of help

    If you are supposed to be lifting something with the help of another person, and this person isn’t paying attention or doing what they are supposed to, you may be able to claim compensation from them if you have an injury because of this.
