Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you if you are wondering whether you can claim for an accident as a foreman. Whether you were working for a private employer or for your own business, personal injury law may cover your foreman accident. If your accident as a foreman was caused by someone else, required medical attention at the time and happened in the last three years, you may be able to claim financial compensation for your injuries.
Working as a foreman
Working life as a foreman can involve long hours and intensive projects. You may enjoy leading a crew of professionals on a job, finishing projects on time and within budget – yet even seasoned professionals run the risk of accidents. Your accident as a foreman could have been caused by faulty equipment or unsafe conditions, which should have been looked after by the site managers or maintenance staff. Perhaps you were under an unusual amount of pressure to finish a job, or your crew was particularly difficult to lead. You may not know it, but your employer is legally bound to look after your health and safety. Any lapse on their part in their duty of care towards you could mean you could claim for compensation. You could also start a financial claim if you were injured by other people working with you, or if your accident was indirectly caused by another’s negligence or dangerous behaviour. Your claim could help you pay any medical fees, help remedy a potential loss of earnings, or simply act as a redress for your accident.
