    Tameside legal team


    If you work in a shop as a sales assistant and have been forced to lift and move heavy objects without a risk assessment by your employers and have injured yourself, you may need the services of a Tameside legal team. These days, employers have a duty of care towards their employees and this also includes a demonstration on how to lift properly.

    Lifting heavy objects at work is a major cause of back injuries. Back injuries vary greatly. Some folks have a twinge for a couple of days and you would probably not be able to claim compensation for that. Whereas, others find themselves crawling on the ground in dire pain and it never completely leaves them.

    If the back pain has had an impact on your life, for instance, it has prevented you from going to work or looking after your children, then you may be able to claim compensation.

    It is important that you report your accident at work and that a record of it is placed in the accident book. This will help your claim to be processed at a later date. Also, you need to be examined by a medical professional. This is so that a report of your injuries can be produced when your award is being assessed.
