If you have suffered a work related injury you may be entitled to compensation; Michael Lewin Solicitors in the UK accepted Mr B’s claim for injuries due to manual handling on a no win no fee basis.

Manual handling injuries occur in nearly all manual labour roles frequently due to lack of training. Any pre-existing injuries increase the chances of injury. Work related injuries can cost an employee dearly in terms of their quality of life outside work. For example sleep patterns can be disrupted or they may no longer be able to enjoy hobbies.

It is essential therefore that employers manage the risks to their employees. Risks of injury during manual handling can be reduced by using equipment such as trolleys or fork lift trucks. In all cases where the lifting or pushing of objects is necessary risk assessments should be carried out to cover the role. The person who carries out the risk assessment should be fully qualified.

Mr B hurt his back when he was lifting a large JCB chassis on to an overhead track. Michael Lewin confirmed third party liability and didn?t ask him for any payment as they will charge their legal fees to the third party.

If you have been hurt at work in an accident that wasn?t your fault it is irrelevant how serious your injury is you are still advised to consult a legal expert regarding claiming compensation in the UK; Michael Lewin have an outstanding reputation for delivering a friendly sympathetic and professional service.

It makes complete business sense from an employers point of view to ensure that all manual handling regulations are systematically followed. If an employee is pushing pulling carrying supporting or moving any object using their own body strength this is classed as manual handling. It is a small price to pay compared to the huge amount of compensation they may be liable for if they are found responsible for causing an accident which injures any of their employees.

You don?t need to worry about any financial constraints as Michael Lewin will not charge you a penny for their services. If they accept your claim they are confident of a positive outcome. If they accept your claim the onus is on them to secure a successful result. You don?t have to pay anything regardless of the outcome. That is how the no win no fee agreement works.
