Injury solicitors in Horton


Constructing with injury solicitors in Horton

Construction sites can be extremely dangerous places to work, and they have many dangers you do not have in other industries. Over the last 20 years, health and safety has been tightened up in the construction industry, but still many accidents and injuries occur, and every year there are workers losing their lives on building sites. Health and Safety Executive (HSE) information suggests that well over two million people work on construction sites, making it the biggest industry in the country.

If you are in a construction site accident that was not your fault, and the injuries you sustained warranted medical attention, you should contact injury solicitors in Horton about making a personal injury compensation claim.

Construction site accidents for which injury solicitors in Horton may be able to help you claim

There are numerous different accidents that happen on building sites, some of which could be avoided if employers and contractors followed all the health and safety guidelines. Unfortunately, sometimes they are negligent in this duty and then accidents happen. Some of the reasons are:

  • Accidents with power tools;
  • Faulty lifts and hoists;
  • Scaffolding accidents causing falls from height;
  • Movement of internal construction site traffic;
  • Falling from ladders;
  • Safety harness failure;
  • Insufficient or no safety briefings;
  • Falls through weak floors and roofs;
  • Falling objects and materials;
  • Electrical faults; and
  • Collapsing trenches and foundations.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of why the accidents occur on construction sites — they are just a small sample.

Reducing the risks

The risks of serious injury from an accident can be reduced, as there is a lot of protective clothing on the market for construction site workers. These will hopefully make any injury you may sustain a bit less severe. Unfortunately though, there are also lots of fake products. Always buy good quality protection from a reputable company to be certain it will do the job it is supposed to. Some of the items that might help are:

  • Hard hats;
  • Ear guards;
  • Safety boots;
  • High-visibility jackets;
  • Dust masks;
  • Goggles;
  • Safety gloves; and
  • Ear protectors.
