There are many types of personal injury and as long as the accident in which you received your injury was not your fault, and you can prove that it was due to another person’s negligence, then you may have grounds for a personal injury compensation claim. If you are looking for an accident solicitor in Isle of Dogs, or an accident solicitor elsewhere in the country, you may have had an accident or perhaps you have a work-related illness. In both cases you must file a personal injury compensation claim within three years of the accident or first being diagnosed with a work-related injury.
Road workers can be susceptible to many kinds of accidents including the slips, trips and falls, which can occur anywhere and is the most common cause of injury. Then there are the problems associated with lifting heavy objects, which is also a problem in other working environments. Road workers are in danger of being hit by vehicles in the course of their daily work. They can also get work-related illnesses if, for example they are not given adequate protective clothing. They use vibrating tools, and if road workers do not have the correct protective gear they can develop vibration white finger, or industrial deafness, which can be caused by exposure to loud noise over a prolonged period of time. Road workers also have to work at heights at times, repairing bridges and so on, and can thus suffer injuries from falling from a height. They can also be injured because of working with tarmac which is heated to a high temperature and can cause burns and scalds if workers are not wearing appropriate protective clothing. Concrete contains chemicals which can also cause burns, even though it is not hot.
