    Compensation for fall injuries on a building site

    Working on a building site has always been a dangerous job as there are so many things that can go wrong on a building site, and so many accidents just waiting to happen. Building sites are incredibly busy with vehicles coming and going, machinery and equipment all over the place and an abundance of workers on site; with all of this going on it comes as no surprise that trips and falls are a regular occurrence. Add to this the fact that workers are often working at height, such as building a roof, and it is completely understandable why many workers sustain fall injuries on a building site.

    Claiming compensation

    Fall injuries are very common, as we at Accident Advice Helpline are all too familiar, and this is especially true of fall injuries that have been sustained on a building site. Although these types of accident are entirely preventable, it seems some building sites have a long way to go to make sure this is the case.

    That is where a personal injury claim specialist such as Accident Advice Helpline could come in useful, as we not only help our customers claim the compensation they deserve, but we also make sure those that are responsible for the accident, are held accountable.

    If you have sustained fall injuries on a building site in an accident that was not your fault, you may be eligible to claim compensation. All you need to do to get the ball rolling on your claim is to contact one of our personal injury claim specialists at Accident Advice Helpline. If you are interested to see how much you could be owed, log onto our website now and check out our 30-second claim calculator.

    Potential injuries

    Fall injuries on a building site can be mild such as a few cuts, bruises and grazes; however, they can also be very severe, potentially even fatal, including:
