Building & construction site injury claims

Construction workers who suffer injury in an accident that was not their fault could be entitled to compensation for their injuries and the losses suffered. This applies whether they are employed or self employed. For free initial advice and to discuss your potential personal injury claim call us on 0203 816 0065.

If you work in the construction industry, it’s likely that you or somebody you work with has suffered an accident at work which has resulted in injury. Some injuries are far worse than others and can result in a loss of earnings through an inability to work. In some cases serious injuries can have life altering consequences.

While construction work is dangerous by nature it is the responsibility of the employer or the main contractor on any work site to minimise these dangers and safeguard all workers. If they fail to do so and an employee suffers a work injury, that employee could be entitled to a make a construction accident claim. Other independent contractors working separately on the same site also have a responsibility to workers and a duty to not cause injury through dangerous working practices or negligence.

Common construction site accident claims are the result of: 

  • Falling
  • Faulty machinery

This compensation can be used to pay for the medical treatments required, including ongoing rehabilitation. Compensation is also intended to repay any financial losses through missed work and perhaps most importantly to adapt your home or car if you have been left physically disabled by your accident.
