Michael Lewin can help clients claim compensation for accidents which have occurred at work in Manchester or anywhere else in the UK.

Mr F worked carrying meat products for part of his working day. He had overcompensated whilst carrying some beef and he suffered a back injury.

The most-often prescribed treatments for back injuries include medication such as anti-inflammatory medicines combined with physical therapy such as rest and massage. Sometimes back injuries resolve themselves if treatments begin shortly after the onset of symptoms. However some back injuries may require more aggressive intervention including surgery and can persist for years.

Manual handling injuries occur in nearly all manual labour roles pre-existing injuries and having received no training will all increase the chances that an injury will occur. Work related injuries are very expensive for the employee in terms of their quality of life outside the workplace. Sometimes repetitive strain injuries or back injuries which are picked up in the workplace can prevent the employee from enjoying hobbies which they once loved. Sleep patterns can be disrupted due to the pain that the employee is suffering from an injury which was caused by something as simple as having an incorrectly aligned desk.

It is essential therefore that employers try to reduce the risks to their employees. As an example you should not carry out any manual handling tasks; where manual handling is unavoidable then the risk should be minimised by using equipment such as trollies fork lift truck and other machinery such as conveyor belts to take goods over shorter distances. Wheeled trolleys like those used by delivery men and packing firms should be utilised. In all cases where lifting or pushing of objects is needed risk assessments should be carried out to cover the role which the employee undertakes by a person who is suitably qualified to do the job.
