Bulldozers are frequently found on construction and demolition sites, and when you consider that these vehicles can weigh up to 102 tons, it’s easy to see how they could easily cause injury when things go wrong. You shouldn’t operate a bulldozer without a licence, but even qualified, experienced operators could be injured in an accident involving a bulldozer at work. We’re not saying that somebody else is definitely to blame for your accident, but take a second to think about how your accident happened. If someone else is at fault, Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim bulldozer driver injury compensation.
What has caused your bulldozer accident?
Machinery failure or a fault with a bulldozer is one of the most common causes of accidents. For example if the brakes fail whilst you are driving, you could crash into a wall or other object, suffering collision and crush injuries such as whiplash and broken bones. Or it could be that the handbrake on your bulldozer has failed whilst you are standing in front of or behind it, running you over and causing serious injuries. The weight of the bulldozer could lead to head, spinal and crush injuries which could change your life and you could be left permanently disabled, unable to return to work or even unable to look after yourself on a daily basis.
It might be that you have been asked to operate a bulldozer without the proper training and you’ve been injured as a result. We could help you claim bulldozer driver injury compensation as this has happened, and your employer could be held liable. Get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline and you could find out whether you are eligible to make a claim for compensation, within three years of your accident.
