    Manual handling training claim in Huddersfield


    If your job involves lifting or moving objects from one part of your place of work to another, you are at risk of having a manual handling accident. This very common work activity results in thousands of injuries every year. Yet most of them are preventable. If your employer did not take steps to prevent your recent lifting injury, you may be able to start a manual handling training claim in Huddersfield. Here we tell you more about how this works in practice and how we here at Accident Advice Helpline can assist you in making a claim.

    Starting a manual handling training claim in Huddersfield

    Before you can start a manual handling training claim in Huddersfield there clearly must have been an accident. This is an incident of some sort where you became injured as you were moving things (or someone) around your place of work.

    Just about every occupation involves some sort of lifting and it need not be a hazardous activity. With the correct planning, equipment and training, nearly all lifts can be carried out without injury.

    However, if you employer has required you to make a lift but has not risk assessed the work activity, has not provided you with the correct training or did not give you the correct equipment, you may be able to start a personal injury claim for compensation.

    Who can help you to claim?

    You are perfectly within your rights to go ahead and start a personal injury claim yourself but this is not advisable. The personal injury claims process can be very complicated and can only be handled properly by a trained legal professional.
