What Duties is my Employer Under When it Comes to Providing a Safe Workplace?
Employers have a responsibility to provide employees with a safe place to work.
Manual Handling injuries can be excruciating, ranging from mild cuts and bruises to long-term bone damage and muscle trauma. The compensation that is available will depend on the circumstances surrounding the injuries you sustain: what steps (if any) your employer took to protect you; how you (if at all) contributed to your injury; and the severity of the injury you suffered. Regardless as to your situation, if you think you have a personal injury claim following a manual handling accident, you should approach a specialist personal injury solicitor to handle your claim.
