Workplace injury lawyers in Redlynch
There are two areas of employment where it is very common for objects to fall from height: the construction industry and the warehouse industry. If you happen to be on the receiving end, you could end up with a head or brain injury and need to make a personal injury claim using workplace injury lawyers in Redlynch. Wearing a hard hat could have reduced the seriousness of your injury significantly, and could save your life.
Wearing your hard hat could mean that you will not need the services of workplace injury lawyers in Redlynch
It is a legal requirement on construction sites, and compulsory in most warehouses, to wear a hard hat. 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 seven floors up, the momentum it gains on its way down would mean that the consequences could be horrific, and you may need to make a personal injury claim using workplace injury lawyers in Redlynch.
It must be 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 and should be destroyed and replaced.
An injury to your head could change your life forever
A head injury can change the lives of the victim and 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 attempt making a personal injury claim.
