Some jobs are significantly more physical than others with many requiring employees to lift, push and carry heavy objects every day. While at the time, those completing such tasks likely do not experience any apparent degree of strain on their bodies. However, when this is multiplied every day for years and, in some cases, even decades, the tolls this can take can become permanent and result in life-changing disabilities.
Due to this fact that some injuries can take long times to become apparent in individuals carrying out regular heavy-lifting, it can often become difficult for those suffering to ascertain who is responsible for their illness. This leads to increased anger and frustration and an inability to achieve any peace of mind.
Our team at Scot Accident Claims are able to offer you the opportunity to share this burden. Our dedicated and professional lawyers have the necessary expertise to help determine what happened and who is at fault and ultimately what steps can be taken next.
Scot Accident Claims Is Regarded At Scotland’s Leading Personal Injury Firm.
If you suffer from an injury which could be attributable to the nature of your work, then it may be possible that you are owed compensation.
Employers have long held a duty to prevent their staff from being exposed to the risks which manual handling has been proven to carry. Firstly, where possible, tasks requiring the use of manual handling should be avoided and employers should take steps to offer alternatives. However, where it is necessary that heavy manual lifting must be done then bosses must undertake a risk assessment of each task. After this then sufficient training must be provided to employees which allows them to complete their work in a safe manner.
It is commonly seen though that this duty has failed to have been adhered to and employers continue to subject their workers to the risks inherent in the process. This is against the law and so must be met by strong opposition to achieve the justice those affected rightly deserve.
