Expert injury lawyers in Raglan

Working on a construction site can be a dangerous pursuit.  It is a lot safer now than it was 20 years ago, but still too many accidents happen.  There are over 2 million workers on construction sites in the UK, making it the countries biggest industry.

Before the introduction of hard hats and other safety measures, there was no protection for the workers heads, and it was not uncommon for injuries or deaths to occur because of falling objects.  As well as hard hats being compulsory on building sites now, other safety measures have been made part of the regulations, such as scaffolding boards and brickguards.

Make sure you wear your hard hat, so you do not have to use expert injury lawyers in Raglan

Many employers view not wearing your hard hat as gross misconduct punishable by instant dismissal.  Not only should you make sure you wear a hard hat on a construction site, you should also make sure it is:

  • Well fitted.
  • In good condition as damaged ones should be discarded.
  • Of good quality. There are many fakes on the market that will do nothing to protect you. Make sure your hard hat is purchased from a reputable supplier and caries the kitemark.
  • Not interfering with you wearing other safety gear such as ear protectors.

Following these guidelines could at the very least, mean that the hard hat will reduce the severity of your injury and may mean you do not need to make a personal injury compensation claim.

The effects of a head or brain injury

The effects of a head or brain injury can be life changing.  Even with something mild like concussion that will take no more than a few days rest to correct, you can end up with life long effects from it. But you could end up with severe brain injuries that will change your life, and the lives of your family forever.  The brain is the most delicate part of our body and generally well protected by our skull but has hard as the bone of our skull is, if the impact is heavy enough, it will be damaged and you may no longer be the same person.

Something falling from height does not have to be large to cause untold damage, even some as small as a bolt will gain momentum as it falls, and can create a serious injury.
