Making a manual handling training claim in Charnwood
You can make a manual handling claim if you have been injured in a manual handling accident that was not your fault. In the case of a manual handling training claim, this will usually mean that your employer acted in such a way that caused you to become injured.
For instance, your employer may not have provided you with enough training to complete the tasks they set you, or they may not have provided the correct equipment for the job. They may even have neglected the strict Health and Safety regulations imposed on them, putting you in a dangerous position, which led to your injury – whatever the case may be. As long as you can prove the negligence of your employer is what caused your accident, you should have no problem making a claim.
See a doctor
It is very important that you should see a doctor after having been injured in a manual handling accident, not only because you may require treatment for the injuries you have sustained, but also because your injuries will be recorded by your doctor. This will help you to prove that you were in fact injured, should you decide to make a personal injury claim.
In order to make a manual handling claim, you will need to act quickly and file your claim within 3 years’ of having been injured because there is currently a 3 year time limit on filing personal injury claims. If you miss this deadline, it is unlikely that you will be able to claim compensation at all, no matter how deserving you might be.
