Michael Lewin public liability injury news: we can help if you have sustained a shoulder injury at work or in a public place; our highly skilled solicitors aim to get you the largest amount of compensation they can manage.
Mr L based in London suffered a terrible accident. He was in work and he had been asked to get some items from downstairs. The steps at work were defective and he tripped whilst going downstairs.
Our client fell down several stairs and he injured his shoulder the most severely. He was in a large amount of pain and he was also badly shaken after his trip down the steps.
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.

There is a law called the Employer’s Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act which basically means that your employer has to have liability insurance of an appropriate level to cover against any work related accidents or illnesses. Your employer should have a copy of their liability insurance in the workplace which is available for all staff members to see.
