How we assist with a manual handling training claim in Pontypool
We will carry out an initial assessment of your circumstances to confirm that you have a right to bring a claim of this type. We need to know when the accident happened. This is because there is usually a window of three years from the date of the incident in which to bring your claim. If, however, you have developed an industrial disease such as repetitive strain injury as a result of insufficient training, for instance, you may have longer. In this case, you will usually have three years from the date on which you became aware of your condition.
Someone else – which will usually be your employer in such cases – must have been to blame. They must have failed in their duty of care towards you through negligence or carelessness.
You must also have had the extent of your injuries recorded, by seeking medical treatment from a health professional.
We’ll tell you whether we think your claim is likely to succeed. We can also give you a broad idea of the amount of money you could be awarded for your injuries. You do not have to pay for this service.
What happens next?
We seek your permission to act on your behalf. There is no obligation to make a claim; it is entirely up to you. But if you feel that compensation is appropriate, a lawyer will be appointed and will see your case through to conclusion. We have as a law firm over 15 years of expertise in handling claims of this and many other types too, so we have the experience to represent you.
We will argue your case professionally and efficiently, seeking to secure you compensation not only for your injuries, but also for costs relating to it. This might cover prescription charges, transport costs for medical appointments, help around the home, childcare and even loss of earnings if applicable. We want to hear from you right now if you need to make a manual handling training claim in Pontypool.
