Building site accident & construction injury compensation claims solicitors
Construction workers who suffer a construction injury in an accident that was not their fault could be entitled to construction injury 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 construction injury claims, call us on 0161 696 6235.
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 a construction site injury. Some injuries are far worse than others and can result in a loss of earnings through an inability to work. In some cases, a serious construction accident 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 construction injury, that employee could be entitled to make a construction injury compensation 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.
Can I claim compensation for a building/construction site injury?
Yes. If you have been injured in an accident on a construction site which wasn’t your fault you could be entitled to make a building site accident claim. It all starts with one conversation and some free initial no obligation legal advice, so give us a call on 0161 696 6235 or complete our online enquiry form and one of our construction accident solicitors will contact you directly.
Common construction site accident claims are the result of:
- Faulty machinery
- Falling objects
- Manual handling errors
Finding out if you have grounds for a construction injury claim couldn't be simpler. All it takes is one quick call to a legal expert at Stephensons. If you have a claim, one of our highly skilled and vastly experienced solicitors will fight to win you the compensation you deserve.
This construction injury compensation can be used to pay for the medical treatments required, including ongoing rehabilitation. Compensation for a construction accident 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 building site accident.
How long do construction injury claims take?
If you think that you have the grounds on which to make a construction injury claim, you might be wondering how long you can expect to wait before you receive your construction accident compensation.
