    Compensation for serious construction site injuries


    Compensation for serious construction site injuries

    Whether you regularly work on a construction site or have been drafted in to help out, construction sites can be dangerous places to work. With health and safety procedures, personal protective equipment (such as safety boots, hard hats and harnesses) and awareness of personal safety, the risks of being involved in an accident leading to serious construction site injuries can be minimised.

    We know that accidents can sometimes be somebody else’s fault though, so if you’ve been injured and your employer is to blame, contact our specialist personal injury advisors to find out whether you could make a claim for personal injury compensation.

    Serious construction site injuries could be caused by a variety of hazards that exist on the average construction site, including:

    • Vehicles, such as forklift trucks;
    • Machinery, including cement mixers;
    • Power tools;
    • Falls from height, for example from a roof or scaffolding;
    • Objects falling from height;
    • Slips or trips; and
    • Hazardous chemicals.

    These all have the potential to cause injury if workers are not properly trained and aware of health and safety procedures. If your employer has been negligent, our 100% no win no fee* service could help you to claim the compensation that you deserve without worrying about expensive legal fees.

    How have you been injured?

    Injuries sustained on a construction site could be extremely serious. Here are a few examples of some of the more serious injuries which could occur:
