Lifting Injury Compensation

It is a common but unfortunate fact that injuries at work occur almost on a daily basis. If a part of your job entails the lifting of heavy objects or any manual handling you could be at risk of injury. Back and neck injuries, fractures, sprains and even hernias are the most common injuries sustained at work but there are other risks too.

Your employer has a duty of care to ensure that any risk of injury as a result of lifting or manual labour is minimised and they need to ensure that you are trained in the correct way to go about your work. This is not the case for just factory or construction workers but in any working environment.

Repetitive strain injury can occur as a result of persistent lifting or carrying and your employer is legally bound to ensure that this does not affect you. You shouldn't be suffering as a result of your job and if you do, you are entitled to make a claim with Mercury Legal.

Employers Liability Insurance will have been taken out by your employer in order to cover them against such claims, so don't feel awkward about claiming the compensation that you could well be entitled to.

We specialise in lifting injury compensation and pride ourselves on our level of customer service and integrity. No matter how trivial you think your case is, we are here to help.

Mercury Legal will pursue your claim at no upfront cost to you and you will not have to pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful through no fault of your own. We will represent your case professionally, managing all of the paperwork along the way.
