    Compensation for leg injuries on a building site


    Being employed on a building site doesn’t have to be dangerous – it’s up to your employer to keep you safe at work. If they fail to follow safety regulations and you suffer leg injuries on a building site as a result, did you ever stop to think that you could be able to claim personal injury compensation?

    Building sites can be hazardous places with heavy, dangerous machinery, not to mention the risks of working at height. But if you’ve been injured at work and somebody else is to blame, we don’t believe you should have to suffer in silence. Accident Advice Helpline is here to make sure you get compensation for your injuries, no matter how minor or severe they are, so take the 30-second test on our website right now and see how much you could claim.

    Life-changing leg injuries

    No matter what job you do, you need your legs to get around, and if you’ve suffered leg injuries on a building site, your mobility could be affected. How did your injury occur? Here are a few examples of the types of accident that could cause an injury:

    • Fall from height – for example, off scaffolding
    • Slip, trip or fall on building site equipment or debris
    • Crushed under a digger or other vehicle
    • Injured when objects fall from height, such as tools and other equipment
    • Lacerations from faulty equipment such as a drill or saw

    Some of these injuries will impact your life more than others – for example if you are run over by a digger and suffer crush injuries, you may be unable to walk again or need physiotherapy to rehabilitate you. This can be expensive and may mean you can’t return to work, affecting you and your family financially. We know that the aftermath of an accident at work is distressing both physically and mentally, and our team of expert personal injury advisors are here to give you confidential, no-obligation advice.

    Should you claim?

    That’s up to you – but remember, if it has been three years or less since your accident, you could be entitled to claim personal injury compensation. If your employer’s negligence has caused your injuries, call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 to get advice from our team – our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee** basis, so there are no upfront legal fees to worry about.
