Making a manual handling training claim in Norfolk
When you’re at work your employer is legally obliged to take all measures to ensure your safety in the workplace. This includes providing adequate training and support. If you attempt to take on a heavy lifting task for which you have not been properly trained there is a good chance you’ll do yourself an injury.
If this happens, your law firm may find itself considered legally culpable for the accident as they should have provided proper training. As a result they will be obliged to pay out compensation. This will normally be paid by their employer’s liability insurance policy. This is what you’ll be claiming against.
Building a case
If you’re looking to make a claim you will need to prove that your employer was responsible. You’ll have to show that adequate training and support was not provided. Doing this requires significant evidence, so the more information you can provide, the better it will be for you and your case.
Aside from all this you also need to fully demonstrate the extent of the injuries you’ve suffered. This will normally be something which has required medical evidence at some point. Get as much information as possible – it may be a good idea to get a follow-up medical assessment to ensure nothing has been missed as part of your claim.
