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. Being eligible for a construction injury claim applies whether they are employed or self-employed. For free initial advice and to discuss your potential construction injury claims, call us o 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.
