    How to claim negligent foreman compensation


    Construction workers will normally work under the supervision of a foreman, who is responsible not only for ensuring that the site is a safe place to work, but also for the individual safety of workers. A negligent foreman who has failed to ensure workers stay safe could be held liable for accidents or injuries. Claiming negligent foreman compensation within three years of your accident is a possibility – but how do you decide who is to blame for your accident at work?

    How did your accident happen?

    Working in the construction industry can be dangerous, but provided health and safety regulations are followed, the risk of accidents can be reduced. If one person, such as the foreman, is negligent, it could lead to accidents which leave workers injured. Here are a few examples of the types of accidents which could lead to a claim for negligent foreman compensation:

    • Collapsing scaffolding causing crush injuries, head injuries or spinal injuries
      Failure to provide safety equipment such as hard hats, safety boots or harnesses for working at height leading to a fall or crush injuries
    • Accidents caused by faulty power tools or equipment which has not been inspected and maintained
    • Injuries caused during a building demolition – for example if the building collapses
    • Accidents caused by lack of training – for example asking a worker to carry out work when he is not competent
    • Diggers or other vehicles being operated by an unqualified worker, leading to injuries to others

    If you or someone you love has been injured on a construction site and you believe the foreman could have done more to prevent your accident, it’s time to get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline. We’re endorsed by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen, and our lawyers provide a 100% no win, no fee service.

    Will you lose your job?

    Whether you’re a contractor or self-employed tradesman, you can’t be fired simply for making a personal injury claim. In fact, you could even report your accident to the Health and Safety Executive if you feel that your foreman is responsible for breaching health and safety regulations. Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim the compensation you deserve for your pain, suffering and any loss of earnings you’ve experienced after being injured. So whether you have suffered serious head injuries or broken your leg after a fall from height, give our freephone helpline a call on 0800 689 0500 and find out if you’re eligible to make a claim.
