Working on a construction site has its own set of risks – from falling from height to being injured by faulty equipment and machinery. But did you ever stop to think that construction site entrance accidents are a real risk? Members of the public crossing construction site entrances are at risk of being struck by heavy goods vehicles such as diggers, forklift trucks and lorries delivering building materials to the site, and the types of injuries caused by construction site entrance accidents can often be very serious.
With some HGVs weighing as much as 44 tonnes, it’s easy to see how serious injuries to pedestrians could occur if they are involved in an accident with one of these vehicles. If you have been injured in this type of accident, or if someone you love has been hurt, call us today for confidential, no-obligation advice and find out more about how we can help you claim the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Injuries to pedestrians
You may have been trapped under an HGV or struck and seriously injured – if you’re unlucky, you may have sustained some of the following serious injuries:
- Broken ribs
- Punctured lung
- Loss of limb
- Spinal fracture
- Head injury
These types of injuries could mean you will need extensive medical care and treatment – such as physiotherapy – to make a full recover. Some people will never recover from their injuries and may be left permanently disabled and unable to return to work or their normal life, prior to the accident.
