Injury Solicitors in Cummertrees
Cummertrees is a coastal village in the council district region of Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. The church was founded by Robert Bruce and has been much rebuilt and enlarged. Kinmount House was the seat of the Marquesses of Queensberry, described by Groome in 1903 as a beautiful edifice, built in the early part of the 19th century at a cost of £40,000, and surrounded by fine pleasure grounds. Hoddom Castle, the old Maxwell fortalice, in the Civil Parish of Cummertrees, was once on the Scottish front line in its defences against England.
When those wonderful old buildings were being built, hard hats had not been invented so no doubt some of the workers on them sustained head injuries. Building sites have always been a dangerous place to be employed and in the UK no days more accidents happen in the construction industry than any other.
If you sustain an injury while working in construction, and the accident that caused your injury was the fault of someone eels, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim using the services of injury solicitors Cummertrees.
Injury solicitors in Cummertrees and instant dismissal
There are all sorts of protective clothing that is worn on building sites and among them is the hard hat, which has saved many lives, and many serious head injuries. It is now compulsory to wear a hard hat as soon as you step foot on a building site and many of the construction companies treat it as gross misconduct if you don’t. This does mean that if you are one of their employees, you could face instant dismissal and if you are not an employee you will at the least be ejected from the site.
Treating your hard hat
You cannot just put on any hard hat, it has to fit properly and needs to be treated with care. They should:
- Be in a good condition, damaged ones should be thrown away
- Fit the wearer properly
- Not stop the wearing of ear protectors
- Only be obtained from reputable suppliers as there are many fake hard hats on the market that give little or no protection
Hopefully, wearing a correct fitting, good quality hardhat will save the need to make a personal injury claim with injury solicitors Cummertrees.
