Can I make a ‘no win, no fee’ Ruddington claim for head injuries?
It is not uncommon to see signs, aimed at employees, threatening instant dismissal if they are found on site not wearing a hard hat. Wearing a hard hat when on a construction site is vital in protecting employees, and any visitors to the site, from head injuries should something fall and knock their head.
As well as the hard hats, builders have a duty to minimise the risk of falling objects by using scaffold boards, brickguards and anything else suitable. Before hard hats became compulsory in the construction industry, a lot of workers were killed, or received serious head injuries because of falling objects hitting them.
What should builders do?
Hopefully, wearing a correct fitting, good quality hard hat will save the need to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Ruddington compensation claim.
The bricklayer, or anyone else, on site cannot just throw on any old hard hat, it should be:
- Only be obtained from reputable suppliers as there are fake hard hats on the market
- In a good condition; damaged ones should be thrown away
- Fit the wearer properly
- Not stop the wearing of ear protectors
How to care for your hard hat
Hard hats are a bit like motorcycle helmets in that if they get dropped, or receive a hard knock, it compromises their integrity and should be discarded.
How head injuries can change your life
