    The dangers of construction sites and warehouses

    It can be very dangerous if you work on a construction site or in a warehouse. The accidents that can happen in these places can be catastrophic. For example, you could fall or have an object drop on you from a height. There are over 2 million workers in construction alone; add this to the warehouse workers and that’s a lot of potential victims.

    If any of them are in an accident that was not their fault, and in that accident they are injured, they may want to make a personal injury claim and use a personal injury lawyer in Market Bosworth in order to help them.

    Wearing protective gear could prevent injuries

    On construction sites and in warehouses, wearing protective clothing can help to reduce the severity of any injuries. In particular, wearing a hard hat on a building site or in a warehouse is vital to your health and safety. To do its job properly, your hard hat should be:

    • In good condition — damaged ones should be discarded;
    • Not preventing the wearing of ear protection; and
    • A good fit for the wearer.

    It is a legal requirement that hard hats are worn on construction sites, and many construction companies see it as gross misconduct worthy of instant dismissal if one is not worn. The employer should supply employees with a hard hat free of charge.

    It does not have to be something big to cause a lot of damage

    It does not have to be something big falling from height to cause a serious injury. Something small falling from height will gain momentum and can cause serious injury to the head if protection is not worn.

    If you have a head or brain injury it could be life changing, not just for you, but for your family as well. Sometimes a brain injury can be so severe that the victim is no longer capable of dealing with everyday normal tasks themselves, let alone try to make a personal injury claim for compensation.

    In this situation, a family member should contact a personal injury lawyer in Market Bosworth at Accident Advice Helpline to make a personal injury claim on behalf of the victim.
