Health and safety is used on a building site to try to avoid the use of the solicitors in Kew

But being on a building site, because of the type of work that happens there, accidents are bound to happen at some point. This could mean that workers are injured in accidents, and the victims who are involved may be entitled to make an injury compensation claim, using the solicitors in Kew, to help them in making an injury compensation claim.
Even though, over the last 20 years health and safety rules and regulations have been tightened up in the construction industry, and even though the tighter measures have reduced the number of serious injuries and deaths, it is still an extremely dangerous place to work.
