    Compensation for building site head injuries


    Head injuries are one of the most serious types of injury which can occur, and if you’ve suffered a head injury at work, the rest of your life could change.

    Serious head injuries which involve a traumatic injury to the brain could cause:

    • Mood swings
    • Behavioural problems
    • Memory loss
    • Co-ordination and muscle control problems
    • Mobility issues

    As you can see, some of these could prevent you from returning to work and could even make it impossible for you to remain independent in your own home. You may need 24/7 care after a head injury, your home may need to be adapted and in some cases you may be unable to control your behaviour.

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we can help you get the compensation you deserve if you or a loved one has suffered building site head injuries, and we won’t charge you a penny in upfront legal fees – our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.

    How did your accident happen?

    Whilst building sites can be dangerous places, there are health and safety regulations in place to protect workers, but if your employer has been negligent, you could find yourself injured in one of the following ways:

    Open Claim Calculator

    • Head injuries sustained after a fall from height, where no safety equipment was provided
    • Objects falling from height onto your head
    • Struck by or run over by a forklift truck, digger or other heavy vehicle
    • Slip or trip where you hit your head
    • Injured by flying debris from faulty machinery
    • Crush injuries from a collapsing scaffolding or a collapsing structure

    Your employer can carry out risk assessments to reduce the risk of building site head injuries occurring, but they can also provide employees with personal protective equipment (PPE) such as a hard hat or safety harness (when working at height) to reduce the likelihood of an injury.

    Who’s to blame?

    If your employer hasn’t provided safety equipment or has breached regulations in some other way, they’re likely to be held liable for your injuries.

    We’ve been in business since 2000 and have helped hundreds of workers claim personal injury compensation for head injuries sustained on building sites.

    There is a three-year time limit in place to make a claim, so call Accident Advice Helpline sooner rather than later on 0800 689 0500 to get confidential advice from our expert team of advisers. It’s free to call and there’s no obligation to proceed with a claim.
