The injury solicitors in Hale construction workers sometimes employ to deal with personal injury claims can be found at Accident Advice Helpline. Several construction workers live in the this small urban village, which is part of the Trafford area of Greater Manchester. It’s ideal for commuting to the various construction sites that are dotted around the city.
Construction is one of the most dangerous industries in which to work
With housing prices on the rise again the construction industry has received a boost. There are several new large housing construction projects in the pipeline offering further employment opportunities for workers. But along with agriculture, the construction industry remains one of the world’s most dangerous working sectors.
In the year of 2012/2013, the industry accounted for 74,000 cases of injury or occupational-related illness. The last 20 years or so have seen a reduction in the number of new accidents being reported each year, but there is still an awful long way to go to get the figure more on a par with other industries.
We can also handle occupational illness claims
As the injury solicitors in Hale construction workers work with, we have also handled a number of occupational cancer cases. There are estimated to be another 3,700 new cases each year, according to statistics issued by the Health and Safety Executive.
But the most prominent type of accidents on construction sites are slips, trips and falls. These account for well over half of all accidents, with one third of them warranting over seven days being taken off work per case. Once again, Accident Advice Helpline handle a large number of this category of accident and injury.
