A lifting injury in Redcar and Cleveland is often sustained while at work. Your employer may ask you to move an object that is heavy or awkward without either training you in manual handling techniques or without providing the right equipment to do so safely. If you’ve been injured in this way and believe the accident should not have happened, you may be entitled to compensation.
Claiming after a lifting injury in Redcar and Cleveland
If you are not sure whether your injury qualifies you for compensation or would like to find out the implications of making a claim against your employer, you can call Accident Advice Helpline. Our trained and friendly advisers will take details of the accident and use this information to give you a free, no obligation assessment of your right to make a claim.
They will also be able to inform you of the amount of compensation you may receive for those injuries if your case is successful. There is usually no need to proceed immediately if you would like to think about it for a while. However, it is worth knowing that there is often a three year time limit for making such a claim; and that very often, the sooner you set your claim in motion, the better. It’s helpful to do so while the details are still fresh in everyone’s minds.
Give us permission to represent you and you will not have to pay us anything upfront to get to work on your case. We’ll appoint one of our in-house lawyers to take your claim forward. They will deal with all the negotiations with your employer and his or her insurers, so that you do not face any awkwardness. Our lawyers are also skilled in ensuring that the money awarded if successful is fair and accurately compensates for the pain and suffering you have endured, rather than settling for less.
Provided the case is relatively straightforward, you may not even have to go to court to receive your settlement. We are often able to negotiate a sum before it comes to this. Moreover, if anything happens that your claim is ultimately not successful, you are protected from having to pay our legal fees by our no win, no fee guarantee.
