    Where to get builder injury compensation advice

    If you have been injured whilst working as a builder, you could make a personal injury claim if somebody else is to blame for your accident. It might be that your employer has been negligent which has led to your accident and subsequent injury – and it’s their responsibility to keep you safe at work. Whilst working as a builder can be dangerous, it doesn’t have to be this way provided health and safety procedures are followed, and if you’ve been injured you can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline for builder injury compensation advice.

    Common builder injuries

    Builders could sustain a range of different injuries, but here are a few of the most common types of injuries Accident Advice Helpline has handled claims for:

    • Falls from height – for example from scaffolding or a roof
    • Cement mixer injuries which could cause serious injuries to arms and hands
    • Crush injuries – for example from collapsing scaffolding
    • Head injuries caused by objects falling from height (and builders not wearing hard hats)
    • Faulty equipment injuries such as lacerations, eye injuries etc.
    • Broken bones, for example fractured bones in your feet or hands from dropping heavy items
    • Vehicle injuries after being hit by a digger or other heavy vehicle
      Injuries caused by lack of training

    If your employer has been negligent, it’s a good idea to get builder injury compensation advice to see if you have a viable personal injury claim. You may need to take time off work after your accident, and getting advice could help you find out whether or not you could claim compensation for loss of earnings. There’s a three-year time limit in place to make a claim, so whether you have suffered minor injuries to your hand or a serious head injury, you should get in touch with us as soon as possible after your accident.
