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.

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 compensation claim. It all starts with one conversation and some free initial no obligation legal advice, so give us a call on 0203 816 0065 or complete our online enquiry form and a member of our team wil contact you directly.

Common construction site accident claims are the result of: 

  • Falling
  • Faulty machinery
  • Falling objects
  • Electrocution
  • Manual handling errors

Finding out if you have grounds for a 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 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.
