Lifting Accidents and their Resultant Injuries
Lifting, or manual handling, in the workplace can cause a number of accidents if something is done incorrectly. If you are manually transporting, supporting or handling loads in your workplace, then you will know the risks that are involved. You could be pulling, pushing, lowering, carrying or lifting an object when an accident occurs, and often this can result in a back injury. However, there are other resultant injuries that you could incur from manual handling and for which you could still claim lifting injury compensation. These include:
If you have suffered any of these injuries, or any level of back injury, from a lifting accident at work, then this could be cause for a claim. As part of the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 your employer must adhere to a number of regulations that should avoid, assess and reduce the risk of these lifting accidents from occurring. If you believe your employer has neglected to follow these guidelines and it has led to your manual handling accident, then you can claim back injury compensation, or compensation for any other injury you may have suffered.
As long as you followed instructions and co-operated fully with your employer on all aspects of the manual handling task you were undertaking, then your heavy lifting claim should be successful.
Posture Back Injuries
If you work in an office you may still be at risk of suffering from a back injury due to the irresponsibility of your employer. Office equipment that is not ergonomically designed or in a broken or damaged condition could lead to posture problems, which in turn can cause back injuries. Employees that are not afforded efficient breaks and rests could also be at risk of developing injuries or conditions that prevent them working efficiently. As with all lifting and manual handling accidents, medical treatment must be sought first, but then, if you believe your condition was directly or indirectly caused by your employer, you should seek the advice of our work accident claim lawyers.
