Manual Handling Injury

Manual Handling Injury

Manual handling and lifting related injuries are extremely common in UK workplaces. If you have suffered a manual handling injury that has left you unable to work, forced to pay expensive medical fees and rehabilitation costs, contact the accident at work solicitors at Farleys.

Can I Make a Manual Handling Claim?

If the manual handling injury you suffered was caused by an accident that was not your fault, or you were not provided with adequate training in lifting and handling techniques and were injured as a result, you may be able to make a claim.

Your employer has a duty to ensure you are fully aware of the proper way to lift, carry, push and pull heavy items. Health and safety legislation also requires them to:

  • Reduce the risk of injury through handling of hazardous items as much as is reasonably possible.
  • Avoid the need for hazardous manual handling as much as reasonably possible.
  • Carry out regular risk assessments of their firm’s manual handling policies. 

If you suspect that your employer or other responsible person has failed in their duty to you, and you have sustained a manual handling or lifting related injury as a result, contact a solicitor as soon as possible. To speak to a Farleys solicitor call 0333 331 4802.
