    Injury claims lawyer in Lochgelly

    Make sure the injury claims lawyer in Lochgelly wears his hard hat if he visits a building site

    Lochgelly is a town in Fife, Scotland. According to the 2007 population estimate, the town has a population of 6,834 people. From the 1830s until the 1960s, Lochgelly was a mining town. With the industry now dead, the town has slipped into economic and social deprivation as with other former mining towns. Lochgelly is now classed as town in need of regeneration “economically and socially” and has the cheapest average home price in Britain. In the future, there will be much construction work carried out as part of the regeneration. Building sites are one of the most dangerous places to work in the UK, and if a worker is injured through no fault of their own, they may want to use an injury claims lawyer in Lochgelly.

    A hard hat could prevent the need for an injury claims lawyer in Lochgelly

    Over the last two decades, huge strides have been made in health and safety on building sites, but still too many accidents happen and too many workers are seriously injured or killed. The wearing of a hard hat could save you from serious head injuries that may have resulted in having to use an injury lawyer in Lochgelly. If you work on any sort of construction site, among the protective clothing you will have to wear is a hard hat, this is a legal requirement and many of the large construction companies will instantly dismiss you for not wearing one on site. This also applies if you are a visitor to a building under construction

    Look after your hard hat

    The workers, or any one else, on site cannot just throw on any old hard hat, it should be:

    • Only be obtained from reputable suppliers as there are fake hard hats on the market
    • In a good condition, damaged ones should be thrown away
    • Fit the wearer properly
    • Not stop the wearing of ear protectors

    Head injuries can change your life

    At their worst, head injuries can affect all parts of your body, stop you being able to speak or do anything for yourself. In this situation, a family member acting on your behalf should use the injury lawyer in Lochgelly or a national provider like Accident Advice Helpline. Head injuries can be life changing.
