Construction work is one of the most hazardous jobs and if you are unfortunate enough to be injured you should consider roofing worker accident advice from Accident Advice Helpline. In addition to the fact that, as a roofing worker, you are likely to be performing your duties at height, you are also at risk of falling victim to equipment failure or the sudden onset of inclement weather.
The most common causes of injury are related to improper risk assessments being carried out by your employer, or are directly linked to faulty equipment. In either circumstance, you would have grounds for making a claim for compensation, which would be covered by personal injury law. Accident Advice Helpline has the expertise and knowledge to provide you with the information you need to file a claim in a timely manner. The solicitor appointed to process your case will do all they can to assist you and ensure you receive the maximum settlement available.
Common roofing worker injuries
Due to the extreme circumstances and conditions associated with the construction industry in general, and roofing work in particular. The most common type of injury you might expect to sustain, and which would result in you or a relative having to make a personal injury claim, will be classified as traumatic. Traumatic injuries cause a severe degree of damage to the impacted area of the body, sometimes to the entire body, and may result in long-term or permanent damage, or in extreme cases, death.
Traumatic injuries include bone fractures; severe cuts and lacerations; damage to nerves, muscles and tissue; spinal injuries and partial or total paralysis; neck, back and shoulder injuries; traumatic brain injuries, including concussion and any kind of severe external or internal injury to the head and brain; crush injuries; and amputations. Whether these injuries result from faulty equipment, equipment failure due to improper maintenance, or from a failure on the part of the employer to accurately assess and clearly explain the risks of the specific job, you may have cause to file a personal injury claim for compensation.
