Solicitor in Wellingborough – Here for you
Wellingborough is within the borough of Northamptonshire, England and home to nearly 80,000 people – with 50,000 of these within the market town of Wellingborough. Over the next few years, the population of the area is predicted to rise by more than 30% due to many planned housing developments.
Our solicitor in Wellingborough is here for anyone who has been injured, through no fault of their own, within the last three years. The housing development plans pose risks to both employees and residents, construction work will be all over the town and this is one of the most unpredictable and dangerous industries in the UK with so many things which could go wrong. If you find yourself injured through the actions or negligence of another – whether a single person or entire organisation – then our solicitor in Wellingborough can help, with absolutely no money needed to begin a claim.
Construction industry risks
When there are plans on a large scale for housing developments this creates a lot of employment with many different kinds of manual labour required, such as:
- Site supervisors
- Machine operators
- And more
These are people who will carry out many different forms of labour, with the use of many different tools, equipment and machinery such as forklift trucks, grab wagons, tarmacking trucks, diggers and dumpers. Jack hammers will be used to break concrete which when not to the new regulations can cause industrial diseases such as repetitive strain injuries and vibration white finger as well as hearing loss and damage.
Construction workers have to go through training programmes with their ‘tickets’ or licences expiring after a certain period of time. To be renewed the person must again prove their abilities. Site supervisors have to ensure that everything runs smoothly and auditors are there to investigate any potential dangers, those in the industry can lose their job in an instant if they have posed a risk to the public and this could be through a simple thing such as not having enough barriers cordoning off an area.
Workers of all kinds must also have adequate rests and breaks from the job. For drivers, this means a break of 45 minutes after every 4.5 hours on the roads to eliminate fatigue which is a huge risk for road traffic accidents. Our solicitor in Wellingborough can help if you have not been treated fairly or accordingly by an employer and subsequently become injured, you can also have a case for stress or anxiety as it is not just physical injuries which warrant compensation.
