Have you suffered back injuries at work?
Each year, hundreds of people find themselves injured as a result of an accident that has occurred at work. If this is you, or has happened to someone you know, then it may be possible to make a claim for no win no fee accident compensation in South Bucks.
When it comes to injuries that have occurred in the workplace, they are often caused by errors or mistakes that an employer has made. If that is the case then it may be possible for you to take action against them.
How were you hurt?
Looking specifically at back injuries, there are a number of reasons why someone may suffer such an injury and need to make a claim for no win no fee accident compensation in South Bucks.
One of the most common reasons is suffering from a manual handling accident. If you are required to lift or move heavy objects it is important that you have been suitably trained on how to do this safely and efficiently. There are certain techniques that must be used to minimise strain on your back, and there are legal limits placed on how much any individual should be required to life on their own.
Certain individuals may be prohibited from performing manual lifting tasks, such as those with existing conditions or injuries, and pregnant women. Your employer should be made aware of any limitations to your abilities in this regard. However, if they are aware and choose to ignore your health, you could make a claim for no win no fee accident compensation in South Bucks.
Another common cause for back injuries in the work place is faulty equipment – specifically office equipment. If you’ve been hurt as a result of poorly maintained or faulty equipment, it’s certainly worth seeking legal advice.
