Michael Lewin were able to get compensation of £4500.00 for Mr F of Norfolk after his back injury. Our solicitors were able to guide him through the procedure for making a claim in a professional manner.

Mr F was 35 when he sustained a back injury whilst performing his job role. Our client had to over compensate while carrying beef and suffered an injury to his back.

Back pain is often the result of incorrect lifting methods and posture. Repetitive lifting bending and twisting motions of the body can affect the degree of severity and frequency of back pain. In addition low-back pain may also be the result of bad lifting habits. This can result in hemorrhage of disks within the spinal column. Many back problems can cause continuing pain for many years and sometimes may require surgical intervention.

Adequate information training and instruction is required for all workers but this is not a set amount. This will be dependent on the age and competency of the employees; for new processes or young/inexperienced employees the supervision will need to be on a far more frequent basis than for established working procedures. Also training to use a computer can allow mistakes which will not be costly in terms of employee’s physical well-being but mistakes cannot be allowed to happen when younger workers are in charge of welding equipment or large electrically powered blades.
