Whether you’ve been working in the construction industry since you left school twenty years ago or are a newcomer to the job, there’s no denying that it can be a dangerous industry to work in if proper safety precautions are not followed. Construction industry injuries could be caused by hazardous equipment, heavy machinery, chemicals, falls from height – the list goes on.
Yet if you’ve been injured and believe your employer is to blame for your accident, there is some good news. Provided you contact Accident Advice Helpline within three years of your accident, we could help you to claim personal injury compensation for construction industry injuries, whether minor or life-changing.
Your life, but not as you know it
Head injuries sustained whilst working in the construction industry are common, and could be caused by a fall from height or objects falling from scaffolding or buildings. Head and brain injuries have the potential to change your life and you may need ongoing care and treatment.
Where you were once the main breadwinner for your family, it might be that you’re unable to return to work or at all, or can only work very limited hours in a less-specialised role, affecting your family financially. Serious brain injuries can affect your mood, behaviour and even your motor skills and you might need 24/7 care to do the things you used to take for granted, like getting dressed and preparing breakfast.
Care and medical treatment costs money, and it’s not just your family’s finances which will be affected in the aftermath of your accident – they’ll be affected emotionally and psychologically too. We can’t turn back the clock, but we can help you and your family to claim compensation after a building site accident, which could help to pay for medical bills and household expenses, as well as any care you may need in the future.
How serious are your injuries?
Whether you’ve suffered a head/brain injury after falling from scaffolding or have escaped with minor injuries after being hit by a vehicle on a construction site, you could be eligible to make a claim if somebody else is to blame for your accident.
