    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Rossendale law firm

    Rossendale has a famous heritage in the quarrying industry, and it would not have been unusual for a Rossendale law firm to be commissioned from time to time, to handle personal injury claims for quarry workers who had suffered an injury through no fault of their own at work.

    The Valley of Stone

    Today, the quarrying industry in the area that is known as Rossendale is history; and the area more of a museum and a testament to its great quarrying heritage; in fact it’s known as the Valley of Stone.

    The towns and villages of Rossendale

    Rossendale is actually a government district, created as such for the purposes of government administration. It encompasses a number of towns and villages including the likes of Bacup, Haslingden, Irwell Vale, Loveclough, and Whitewell Bottom.  The majority of buildings in these towns and villages are built from locally quarried stone. The quarry industry began in the 18th century and in its heyday employed thousands of workers. Rossendale stone was famous and was distributed not just all over the UK, but all across the world too.

    The “Target Zero” initiative

    In terms of health and safety, the quarrying industry has something of a chequered past. Since the year 2000, approximately 3,000 workers have been seriously injured under the RIDDOR accident reporting scheme. 29 of these injuries were fatal. The Quarries Joint National Advisory Committee issued an initiative known as “Target Zero”, an initiative, which alongside its forerunners has been instrumental in reducing the accident rate down by 80%.

    15% year on year accident reduction targeted

    The next phase of “Target Zero” is aimed at further reducing the accident rate by 15% year on year until the year 2015. This initiative is based on an HSE (Health and Safe Executive), publication entitled “Health and safety in quarries. The quarries regulations 1999 – approved code of practice.”

    Any Rossendale law firm now has other fish to fry

    The demise of quarrying in Rossendale doesn’t however mean that any Rossendale law firm can sit back on their laurels. There is still plenty of other fish to fry by way of processing personal injury claims being made in other industries and workplaces.
