How to make a manual handling training claim in Purbeck
Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you make a claim for personal injury compensation. Before we start work on any case, we ensure that we thoroughly assess it so that you have a clear idea of whether your claim is eligible or not.
Every claim has to have three factors present. These are critical to the success of any claim:
- The accident in which you were hurt must not have been your fault
It may be that your manual handling training claim in Purbeck relates to your workplace setting. We would need to ascertain why you were hurt in this way.
Were you trained correctly? Was all the equipment you needed present and in good working order? Why did the accident happen? Could it have been avoided?
Many people do worry about making a claim against an employer but it is important to note that compensation claims can be the factor that forces change for the better in a workplace setting.
- How were your hurt? Have your injuries been assessed?
In most cases, when people are hurt they seek medical help. This could have been from your own doctor or, you may have attended the local hospital. For some people hurt in an accident, they will have been admitted to hospital as an emergency case.
It is important to note that this initial assessment is important. It confirms the nature and type of injury or injuries you received, as well as the immediate impact of them.
- When did the accident happen?
There is a deadline of three years within which time anyone seeking compensation must lodge their complaint. This deadline starts counting down from the time is can be reasonably assumed that accident was the cause of the injury. In most cases therefore, the deadline starts counting down from the date of the accident itself – but it can vary.
