Personal injury lawyer in Presteigne


Hard hats

If your place of work is a construction site or a warehouse, these are very common places in which objects can fall from heights. If you happen to be on the receiving end of a falling object, you could end up with a head or brain injury, and may need to make a personal injury claim using a personal injury lawyer in Presteigne. Wearing a hard hat could have reduced the seriousness of your injury significantly, and could even save your life.

Wearing your hard hat could prevent you from needing a personal injury lawyer in Presteigne

Wearing a hard hat is a legal requirement on construction sites, and compulsory in most warehouses. In fact, some companies view not wearing one as gross misconduct worthy of instant dismissal. This is very sensible, and if only the employees listened then fewer of them would be killed each year by something hitting their head.

Part of the problem is that the falling object does not have to be large to cause untold damage – if a bolt fell from five floors up, the momentum it gains on its way down means the consequences could be horrific, and you may need to make a personal injury claim using a personal injury lawyer in Presteigne at Accident Advice Helpline.

Your hard hat must be good quality

You must wear a hard hat that is of good quality. Wearing any old hard hat is not good enough. There are many fakes on the market that will give you very little protection at all, if any. Make sure yours is purchased from a reputable supplier, carries the British Kite Mark and fits you properly. If it is dropped or damaged in any way, its integrity becomes compromised. In this case, it should be destroyed and replaced.

An injury to your head

If you have an injury to your head, it can leave you with devastating consequences. A head injury can change the life of the victim, as well as those of their family. A brain injury can mean you become a different person, and life can become very difficult for everyone involved. It could well be that you are no longer capable of carrying out everyday tasks for yourself, let alone attempting to make a personal injury claim. If this is the case, a family member should contact Accident Advice Helpline on your behalf so that a personal injury compensation claim can still be made.
