    How to claim construction site injury compensation


    Have you suffered injuries whilst working on a construction site? Or maybe you have been injured whilst visiting a building site – didn’t you get issued with safety boots and a hard hat? Construction sites can be dangerous places if health and safety is not a priority, and it is up to the site owners and management to ensure the safety of anybody on the premises, whether that’s a construction worker or a member of the public. Whilst it’s a bit too late to worry about that if you have already been injured, you don’t need to suffer in silence. Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim construction site injury compensation.

    How could you be injured?

    There are plenty of hazards lurking on a construction site, from scaffolding to power tools and heavy machinery as well as vehicles like fork lift trucks and diggers. With a little care, most accidents can be avoided, but here are a few examples of the types of accidents we have handled construction site injury compensation claims for since 2000:

    • Hit by a forklift truck or digger
    • Visitors to the site injured by objects falling from height
    • Workers falling from scaffolding or injured when scaffolding collapses
    • Injuries caused by power tools
    • Cement mixer injuries
    • Workers falling through skylights or roof lights when working on a roof

    Whether you’re a visitor to a construction site who has been injured or a construction worker, making a personal injury claim could be possible if you’ve been hurt and it has been three years or less since your accident. There are no upfront fees to pay when you make a claim with Accident Helpline on a 100% no win, no fee** basis.

    Why should you make a claim?

    Negligent employers and construction site owners should be held liable for any injuries caused to contractors or the public. You shouldn’t have to suffer in silence, whether you’ve suffered broken bones or a back injury after a fall from height or head injuries after objects fell from scaffolding and struck you. With Accident Advice Helpline, the claims process is simple. Give us a call on 0800 689 500 to find out whether you’re eligible to make a personal injury claim for your construction site accident.

    It might be that you have been left unable to return to work, or you need to pay for ongoing care and medical treatment, which has affected your family financially. Let us help you get the compensation you deserve after somebody else has been negligent.
