Rugby in Warwickshire is famous for the invention of the game Rugby at the famous Rugby School, which was the setting for the novel, “Tom Brown’s Schooldays.” Rugby is also where Frank Whittle produced the prototype jet engine in 1937. The town has a long industrial history and cement is manufactured there, using limestone from the Jurassic Lias period. There will almost certainly be injury solicitors Rugby-based, although you may encounter some problems finding a suitable one to represent you.
If you have problems finding a firm of injury solicitors in Rugby or elsewhere, with an appropriate injury solicitor who has experience in winning compensation for clients who have been injured in accidents such as yours, or who have had the same type of illness that you have or have had, then call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers given below.
Injury solicitors in Rugby
You may be looking for a firm of injury solicitors in Rugby (for example) because you have been injured in an accident that you can prove was not your fault, or you may have contracted an illness that you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. You generally have three years in which to make your claim, but as some accidents and injuries have a shorter limitation period, you should check to see how long you have in which to file your claim either with a firm of injury solicitors in Rugby, for example, or with us at Accident Advice Helpline.
Hazards of working with cement
If you come into contact with wet cement, it could cause dermatitis, as well as burns. In order to avoid dermatitis you should wash your skin with warm water and soap, and dry the skin afterwards. Although gloves may help to protect the skin, they may not be suitable for some tasks performed on a construction site, as cement, if it is trapped inside a glove, can cause cement burns.
Perhaps the major problem when working with cement is that of inhalation. Silica dust, in the form of respirable crystalline silica, can cause a number of lung problems if you are exposed either to huge amounts in a short period of time, or smaller amounts over a lengthy period.
Another problem when working with cement is that of manual handling. If you are expected to carry large bags of cement, and have not been trained adequately in how to do this, in relative safety, then you might have back problems.
Your employer has a duty to protect your health and safety while you are at work, and failure to do so can mean he or she is liable for personal injury compensation claims.
