Manual handling compensation claims

We all understand that manual labour involves a certain level of risk. However, you should also expect the highest levels of safety and care are in place protect and look after you whilst you carry out manual tasks at work.

We also know that being injured and out of work affects your friends and loved ones, which is why we will do everything in our power to get you the compensation you deserve, should you be affected by a workplace accident.

Claims for manual handling compensation can arise from:

  • employers not providing the correct training, or none at all
  • employers not carrying out risk assessments on individuals or situations
  • employers not providing an appropriate number of staff to carry out a job or task

The type of claims we deal with often involve:

  • back injuries
  • leg and arm injuries
  • muscular injuries or damage
  • existing injuries made worse
