Injury claim in Pinner


A hard hat could save you from a serious head injury and avoid the need for you to make an injury claim in Pinner

If you are employed in a warehouse or on a construction site, a hard hat could prove to be a lifesaver. In both of these jobs, you are at the risk of falling objects hitting your head, and when they fall from height they do not need to be big to cause an injury.

How an injury was avoided before hard hats

Before the introduction of hard hats, there was no protection for workers’ heads. In the construction industry particularly, 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.

The state of a hard hat

The condition of your hard hat is really important. It should:

  • Be well fitting;
  • Be in good condition. Damaged ones should be discarded;
  • Be of good quality. There are many fakes on the market that will do nothing to protect you; purchase yours from a reputable supplier and make sure it has the kitemark; and
  • Not stop you wearing other safety gear, such as ear protectors.

Follow these guidelines, and at the very least the hard hat will reduce the severity of your injury and may mean that you do not need to make an injury claim in Pinner.

The consequences of a head injury

The effects of a head injury can be life changing. You may have something mild like concussion that will take no more than a few days rest to correct, 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 is generally well protected by our skull, but as 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. You may have difficulty understanding, doing everyday tasks for yourself and there are many other effects that would mean you, or a family member, would need to make an injury claim in Pinner.
