The personal injury lawyer Larbert construction workers often turn to is AAH. The construction industry is one of the most dangerous industries to work in, according to RIDDOR statistics. But it’s an industry that AAH has in-depth knowledge of when it comes down to processing personal injury claims on behalf of workers who have been injured on construction sites through no fault of their own.
Larbert is now a commuter town
Once upon a time Larbert, was heavily involved in the manufacturing industry, but with the steady decline of manufacturing here in the UK, in more recent years the town has become more of a commuter town serving Falkirk and Stirling, in addition to Edinburgh and Glasgow. To support the ever growing demand for commuter housing, new housing projects are springing up all of the time, creating plenty of working opportunities for construction workers.
As the personal injury lawyer Larbert construction workers use we handle all sorts of injury claims
If you are a construction worker and you’ve been injured in the workplace through no fault of your own, you can trust the personal injury lawyer Larbert workers often turn to. We’re now one of the nation’s favourite injury claim lawyers, and are processing over 25,000 new enquiries each and every month. We have an enormous depth of experience and expertise, much of it gained within the construction industry. Many of the construction industry injury claims we handle are caused by:
- Falls from height
- Slips, trips and falls at ground level
- Collisions with moving vehicles
- Faulty or defective equipment
- Vibration white finger
- Whole body vibration
- Occupational related diseases (asbestosis etc)
The fatality rate regarding injuries in the construction industry is alarming. Last year 148 construction workers died from their injuries, and half of these fatalities were due to falls from height and collisions with moving vehicles. Whilst the accident incident rate is improving year-on-year, it is still unacceptably high, and health and safety executives must continue to do everything within their power to reduce it further.
