There are many jobs in which manual lifting and physical labour are a part of everyday life – and for which you may need to consider making a claim after suffering a manual handling injury in Deganwy.
Factory workers, shop assistants, lorry drivers, construction site employees, farm hands and a number of other workers are required to lift heavy objects and move stock on a day-to-day basis. In these cases, it is the responsibility of the employer to provide adequate training to reduce the risk of injury. Improperly lifting a heavy item can lead to a number of painful injuries, including acute or chronic back pain, sprains, hernias and other serious injuries.
It can often be the case that such injuries can impair the employee from returning to work for a number of days, sometimes weeks, which can have an impact on the income they earn. According to the Manual Handling Operations Regulations (1992), an employer is responsible for providing thorough training, and ensuring that the guidelines for safe pulling, pushing and lifting of all objects is adhered to.
If you have sustained a manual handling injury in Deganwy, you could be entitled to make an claim for personal injury compensation if you believe your employer neglected their duty and in doing so caused the injury.
