Have you been an accident victim in Stanley?
Stanley is a former colliery town in County Durham and has a long history in the building and construction industry. Historically, there were fewer of the health and safety measures that are in place now. In spite of 20 years of tightening safety measures on constructions sites, there are still more accidents than in any other industry in the country.
If you’ve been an accident victim in Stanley and you weren’t at fault, you may be able to take legal action and you could be awarded compensation.
The dangers of head injuries
When you are employed on a construction site, there is always the possibility of something falling on your head and causing an injury. Wearing a hard hat can mean that the severity of that injury is reduced and may save your life, let alone the need to make a personal injury claim for which you might use injury lawyers.
Wearing a hard hat on a building site is vital to your health and safety and is now compulsory. Your employer should ensure that every employee has a well fitting, good quality hard hat to wear, as there are many fakes on the market that would give you no protection at all. Most employers now consider not wearing one to be gross misconduct punished with instant dismissal.
