    Compensation for accidents in the building industry


    Whether you’re an employee or a self-employed contractor, working in construction can be a hazardous job – but there are precautions you and your employer can take to reduce the risk of accidents in the building industry occurring. Things like proper training, PPE and adhering to health and safety regulations (such as carrying out risk assessments) can keep you safe at work.

    Perhaps you’ve already been unlucky enough to have sustained injuries after an accident at work? Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim personal injury compensation if your employer has been negligent.

    If a fall from height has left you with serious injuries or you’re suffering from Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome after working with vibrating equipment, contact our personal injury advisors for confidential, no-obligation advice.

    How did your accident happen?

    Whilst you take some responsibility for your own safety at work when you’re on a building site, the site manager also has responsibility for the safety of all contractors. This includes adhering to health and safety regulations such as the Work at Height Regulations 2005.

    It’s inevitable that work at height will need to be carried out at some point in the building trade, but your employer should ensure that guard rails or safety harnesses are provided, so that you’re not at risk of injury.

    It might be that you’ve injured yourself operating machinery without receiving any training – such as a cement mixer or drill – and if your employer had taken the time to provide you with training, your accident could have been avoided.

    We specialise in claims relating to accidents like this and we have a great success rate; in fact, we have even been endorsed by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen.

    Is claiming the right next step?

    If you’re struggling to pay your household bills after time off work due to injury, or if you are unable to work after suffering a life-changing injury on a building site, claiming personal injury compensation is a good way to move on with your life.

    We can help you get the compensation you deserve, no matter how minor or serious your injuries, so call our team on 0800 689 0500 today to find out more about what happens next.

    The claims process is fairly straightforward and it’s unlikely you’ll need to go to court – and our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis, so you have nothing to lose by getting in touch with Accident Advice Helpline today.
