Michael Lewin helped Mr S of Tunbridge Wells after his unfortunatehand injury at work; he felt he needed to claim compensation. He received £2351.82.

Mr S of Tunbridge Wells badly injured his right hand when it made contact with a dock levelling plate that had been left in upright position. His right hand had swollen up and he had severe bruising to his right hand.

The levelling plate should never have been left in that position and our client felt that he needed compensation for his injuries. 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.

Manual handling relates to the moving of items either by lifting lowering carrying pushing or pulling. But it’s not just a case of ‘pulling something’ due to the weight of the item although this can be a cause of injury. Injuries can be caused because of the amount of times you have to pick up or carry an item the distance you are carrying it the height you are picking it up from or putting it down at (picking it up from the floor putting it on a shelf above shoulder level) and any twisting bending stretching or other awkward posture you may get in whilst doing a task.

Manual handling is one of the most common causes of injury at work and causes over a third of all workplace injuries which include work related Musculoskeletal Disorders such as upper and lower limb pain/disorders joint and repetitive strain injuries of various seriousness.
