About Construction Site Accident Claims
Construction sites and building sites are dangerous places in which to work. This is because there is usually a large number of people involved on a construction site with dangerous machinery around and lots of heavy traffic coming and going all day long. Although health and safety has improved over the years, for example it is uncommon these days to see anybody on a construction site who is not wearing a high visibility vest or a safety helmet, accidents do still happen.
Your employer has a legal obligation to provide you with a clean and safe working environment, proper equipment and also to ensure that all their staff have been fully trained on all aspects of their job. This includes being fully trained in health and safety at work. If they fail in their duty to look after you whilst you are working for them then they can be held to account by the law. No one should ever have to go to work and suffer an injury or death. On some construction sites it may be the main contractor of the site who is in charge of assessing health and safety and applying those rules and regulations to all subcontractors rather than your own employer. Such cases can be very complicated with neither party willing to accept the blame. This is where our experienced solicitors can make the difference and progress your case quickly to a successful conclusion.
We understand that you may feel uncomfortable about making a construction site accident claim, particularly as you may have concerns over job safety. The fact is that your employer cannot dismiss you if you are injured due to their negligence in the workplace and they must have insurance in place to cover them. They won’t have to pay you compensation themselves.
Our experienced solicitors can help you with a wide range of construction site claims such as:
- Falls from roofs, ladders or scaffolding due to defective work equipment or poor safety training
- Exposure to chemicals due to inadequate personal protection equipment provided, lack of health and safety training and maintenance of hazardous materials
- Accidents when workers have been injured by a vehicle at work.
- Lifting injuries caused by poor health and safety training or lack of adequate equipment for the required job
- Injuries caused by falling objects, often from cranes, scaffolding or higher floors on building sites
- Accidents caused by unsafe procedures and practices
