Have you have been affected by an accident at work, injured as a result of lifting or moving a heavy object, for example? If so, then you may be eligible to make a manual handling training claim in Redbridge. Your injuries must have warranted treatment by a health professional and the accident must have happened within the last three years for you to be entitled to ask for compensation.
Establish whether you have a manual handling training claim in Redbridge
For expert legal advice on your situation, speak to Accident Advice Helpline. We will evaluate the circumstances surrounding your accident and tell you honestly whether we think we would be able to secure compensation for your injuries. We will also give you an estimate of how much is often awarded after accidents of a similar type. This is just an estimate, though.
There’s no charge for this information and it does not oblige you to go forward with a case. That decision is yours. But we would be happy to represent you on a no win, no fee basis if you wish to bring a claim against the party responsible for your injuries. We will not ask for any money upfront to set things in motion.
If your claim is against an employer, you may be concerned that taking such a step will put your job at risk. We can advise here too: most responsible employers will respect your right to make a case for compensation if you have been injured as a result of their negligence. But in any case, if it is your legal right to do so, you cannot be penalised by being treated differently at work or lose your job because of it.
What compensation will I receive?
If successful, you will receive a sum of money to compensate for your injuries. The amount will depend largely on the severity of those injuries and the prognosis for your recovery. However, you may also be entitled to ask for recompense for out of pocket expenses you have incurred as a result. This may cover:
- Transport costs to and from medical appointments;
- Prescription charges;
- The cost of any help around the home you have needed;
- Money paid out for childcare; and
- Loss of earnings if you have not received sick pay while you have been off work.
