All you need to do is either take our 30 second test, or give us a call on our free phone helpline.

What is a manual handling accident?

A manual handling accident is one which occurs when someone is performing any form of manual handling task. When many people think of this type of accident they often associate it with lifting. While this is one of the reasons for such an accident, our accident solicitors have also helped countless people claim after they have been injured as a result of pulling, pushing, carrying and lowering of items.

Generally speaking such an accident occurs resulting from lack of training, or through lack of support, often from other staff members or in the form of appropriate equipment.

Types of injuries

Although accident solicitors can help you no matter what type of injury you have sustained, one of the most common injuries that we see at Accident Advice Helpline are back injuries. However, we have also helped people who have suffered from injured fingers and toes as a result of dropping heavy items they were instructed to carry, or who have been diagnosed with hernias.

No matter what type of injury, whether it was relatively temporary, or if it has caused ongoing problems with your health, our accident solicitors will be able to assist you in making a claim if you have been the innocent victim of an accident.

Who is liable?

When it comes to an accident involving manual handling, it is impossible to say who is directly responsible without knowing all of the facts. This is precisely what your accident solicitor is there to do – establish who is liable, and then bring a claim for personal injury against them.

If your accident has occurred at work, which is where the vast majority of our manual handling claims do occur, then the chances are your employer is likely to be regarded as being liable. This is because all employers have a duty of care to the employees to ensure their safety. If your accident solicitor can demonstrate that your employer has failed in this care, perhaps by not providing you with any training, or as a result of not inspecting equipment, and you have been injured as a result, then they will be found liable.

If you are looking for a Pontyclun accident solicitor but cannot find one in the area then fear not you can use one of our solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline instead.
