Back injury from heavy lifting
Our client had previous back problems and was vulnerable to back injury with heavy lifting. At work, our client was required to manually wind cable as part of his role, and as a result suffered an exacerbation of his existing back problem.
Our client’s employers failed to take account of our client’s pre-existing back problems when assessing the risks that our client’s role would prove to his health. Additionally, inadequate training was provided to our client in order that he may protect himself from exacerbating his condition.
A back injury at work claim was made with our specialist accident at work team and £10,250 in compensation was obtained for the client.
