When To Claim After A Construction Site Accident
People can make a claim if they have had an accident at work while on a construction site if it was not their own fault.
A claim has to be filed within three years of an accident, unless they were a minor at the time or if it involves an industrial disease.
Accident victims can also quickly assess for them selves whether or not they qualify to make a claim by taking the 30-second test online.
If a claimant decides to make a claim then Accident Advice Helpline offers a no win – no fee*, legal service.
Claims can take some time to reach a conclusion, and amounts discussed are only a guideline, but more often than not the claims are settled without the need to attend court and most of the time things are done over the telephone.
Claiming compensation after a construction site accident starts as soon as the claimant is ready. It helps if the accident is reported immediately and a record is made in the incident book on site.
Full details need to be written down and any witnesses to the accident will be asked to give details to support the claimant`s case.
All treatment at the time of the accident and then ongoing should be noted and supported by a doctor or your GP, which will help in preparing the claim.
