If you’ve been hurt in an accident whilst working on a building demolition, you’ll know that it can take a long time to recover from your injuries, which could be life-changing, if you have been unlucky. Injuries to demolition workers could leave them unable to return to work or requiring ongoing care and medical attention in the future, which costs money. This could impact them and their families financially.
It sound like doom and gloom, but the good news is that if you’ve been injured in a demolition accident and somebody else is to blame (like your employer), you could claim personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline. We have been helping workers claim compensation for construction and demolition accidents for years, and we specialise in personal injury claims, so you can trust us to get you the compensation you deserve.
Injuries sustained in demolition accidents
Demolition work should only be carried out by specialist contractors, and it’s important that risk assessments and a full structural survey are completed before work commences. If your employer has failed to carry out a structural survey or has not done so to the required standards, they could be held liable if you sustain any of the following injuries (or any injury) in an accident at work:
- Head injuries
- Crush injuries such as cracked ribs
- Broken bones
- Burns (for example if a gas pipe is struck, causing an explosion)
Injuries to demolition workers could be life-changing, and if you have been left unable to work and provide financially for your family, why should you suffer in silence? We believe you’re entitled to claim personal injury compensation for your pain and suffering, and our expert personal injury advisors are here to make sure that happens, offering confidential no-obligation advice.
How much could you receive?
It’s not easy to say how much compensation you could receive without knowing the circumstances surrounding your accident, but for an idea of the amount you could be entitled to, take the 30-second test on our website. Our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, and we’ll take into account the extent of your injuries, your pain and suffering and any expenses you’ve incurred (as well as loss of earnings) after your accident, when working out your personal injury settlement.
