    How to claim negligent builder compensation


    A negligent builder could cause injury to clients, members of the public or even their colleagues – and as being a builder requires qualifications and experience in the industry, there really is no excuse for negligence at work. If you have been the victim of shoddy building work which has left you injured, or if you’ve been injured by a colleague whilst working in the industry, why not make a claim for negligent builder compensation? You’ll want to choose a personal injury lawyer who can get you the compensation you deserve – and Accident Advice Helpline has been helping workers and members of the public claim compensation since 2000.

    How have you been injured by a negligent builder?

    Negligent builders could be responsible for injuring their colleagues by leaving tools and equipment lying around (which could cause a slip, trip or fall from height), failing to carry out checks on machinery or equipment which could lead to an injury or even failing to keep watch when a colleague is working at height on a ladder. Or it could be that you’re a member of the public who has hired a builder to carry out work in your home. Shoddy building work could lead to a structural collapse which could cause crush injuries or even an explosion, if your boiler is affected.

    Negligent builders carrying out work on buildings open to members of the public, such as schools or hospitals, could cause injuries to passers-by when tools or equipment fall from height. Or perhaps they have overloaded scaffolding which has collapsed on people walking underneath, causing crush injuries.
