Are you looking to make a manual handling training claim in Islington? Well, this is the right page to be on. Here, we at Accident Advice Helpline are going to tell you everything that you need to know about claiming compensation through us.
We are very selective about the type of case that we deal with
As you may well know, Accident Advice Helpline is one of the leading 100% no win, no fee personal injury law firms in the United Kingdom. This, basically, means that the financial risk of the compensation claims that we take on falls on our heads. As a result, we have to be very selective about the type of case that we take on.
If you wish to file your manual handling training claim in Islington through Accident Advice Helpline, your case will need to conform to a few select guidelines, which is what we will discuss on the rest of this page.
Were you injured?
You are only able to file a compensation claim if you were injured. The lack of proper safety training is not enough if no injury was actually suffered. If you have yet to be injured on the job and are concerned about the lack of manual handling training, then talk to your employer. Do not leave things too late. The last thing you want to deal with is an injury.
You do have to realise that it is not enough to just say that you were injured. You are going to need to provide us with some evidence that you were injured. We will only be able to accept a medical report here.
When did the incident occur?
You can only claim compensation within three years of the date of the incident. Obviously, there are some lifting injuries which may take a while to develop and there is no real ‘firm date’ as to when it actually occurred. If you are injured and you do not know when the injury actually occurred, please give us a call so we can discuss your case.
Is your employer to blame?
You can only claim compensation if your employer is to blame. It is the responsibility of your employer to ensure that you stay safe in the working environment. This means providing you with the proper safety training and taking measures to ensure that you are not carrying overly heavy loads. If you wish to claim compensation, you need to prove that the injuries you are suffering from are down to them, rather than you ignoring your safety training.
