    Compensation for building site traffic accidents


    Compensation for building site traffic accidents

    You’d be forgiven for thinking that you’re most likely to suffer an accident on a building site whilst working at height or otherwise involved in construction of some kind. But did you know that many building site accidents are caused by traffic? You could be struck by an HGV or other commercial vehicle whilst crossing a building site as a pedestrian or worker, or you could be involved in a collision with another vehicle as a driver.

    Building site traffic accidents often result in serious injury due to the size and weight of the vehicles involved. With HGVs weighing many tonnes, being crushed underneath a vehicle is a real risk and could lead to life-changing or life-threatening injuries, including:

    • Broken bones
    • Head injuries
    • Facial injuries
    • Broken ribs
    • Punctured lung
    • Spinal injuries
    • Loss of limb(s)

    If you’ve suffered crush injuries, contact our personal injury advisors, who are on hand to offer confidential, no-obligation advice and answer any questions you have about the claims process.

    Who is to blame?

    Building site traffic accidents are not uncommon, and if you’re a pedestrian who has been struck by an HGV, it may be that the driver was negligent. For example, were they distracted by talking to other workers and reversed into you? Perhaps they struck you whilst they were on their mobile phone and not paying attention to their surroundings? You shouldn’t have to suffer if you’ve been injured in an accident that somebody else is to blame for, and we’re here to help you get the personal injury compensation you deserve. Accident Advice Helpline has been endorsed by our patron, UK consumer champion Esther Rantzen, and we’re proud of the high standards of customer service we offer to all our customers.
