Many people are required to lift heavy items in their job role, and if the proper health and safety precautions are not taken, or the right equipment for the job is not provided, people can easily be left with life-altering injuries that leave them unable to work as before.
Injuries from heavy lifting aren’t necessarily caused by the lifting itself. Sometimes people are injured because they twist awkwardly while holding a heavy object or ligaments can be damaged when someone tries to place a heavy item they have lifted back on the floor.
Accidents of this nature can happen in almost any workplace, but the most common places include construction sites, factories, farms, warehouses and hospitals.
If you’ve been injured whilst heavy lifting at work, contact the team at Ramsdens Solicitors to find out more about the process of making a claim. We give honest, impartial advice, and with our help you will have the best chance of securing the compensation you’re entitled to.
