    Introducing construction site accidents

    Hands up who didn’t laugh at the video above? There’s a school of thought that suggests that this video is fake but, much like England’s victorious 2014 World Cup campaign, if you want something to be true, it is.

    The man in the white shirt is clearly in the wrong industry. With such accurate hoof, a starring role in the next John Smith’s adverts, or a trial at Stoke City, surely awaits? If he tried it a million times he’d surely never get such a perfect result again, so let’s be grateful that this spectacular construction site accident was caught on camera.

    Common construction site accidents

    Official statistics from the Health and Safety Executive show that, in the financial year 2011-2012, 0.6 million days in the construction industry were lost due to accidents and injuries at work. While this incident was clearly not in England, (evidence – 1. The language spoken. 2. The sunny weather. 3. The silky skills on show), should a similar one occur on these shores, work accident claims would surely follow.

    Potential claims in the YouTube video

    As if the man being knocked off his platform at 29 seconds isn’t bad enough, the domino effect it seems to have on surrounding equipment adds to the ensuing chaos, damage and potential for serious work injury.

    When considering a work accident claim, it’s vitally important to assess who was at fault. In this instance, it’s clearly the man in the blue t-shirt on the wall.

    Not even looking at the game, he’s totally unaware of not only the positions of his team mates, but also their intentions to get him more involved in the game.

    Joking aside, this construction site accident could have been extremely serious. Whether caused by an errant football or not, something causes the collapse of the platform while only quick movement saves the man in the green hat from a severe work injury.

    Clearly, the company need to rethink either how their platforms are constructed or what they allow the workers to bring on site.

    Fortunately for those wishing to make a claim, help is at hand. Accident Advice Helpline can help secure the work accident compensation you deserve on a no win, no fee* basis.
