When it comes to accidents and being hurt there are many types of injuries you could sustain from a construction accident. Whatever the nature of the injury, however, you could be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim if the accident was not your fault. Accident Advice Helpline, as a law firm dealing specifically with personal injury claims, can offer help and advice on making a compensation claim.
Annually there are thousands of accidents that occur in the construction industry and many of them could be prevented. Just as there are thousands of accidents that can happen, there are just as many reasons again for these accidents being allowed to occur.
Types of injuries you could sustain from a construction accident
Working or visiting a construction site brings with it the possibility of injury as the result of accidents that might otherwise have been avoided. Whether working on a construction site or simply visiting in another capacity, you should firstly be kitted out with protective headwear, footwear, and high visibility outerwear.
Wearing the aforementioned can go some way to protecting you on a building site and will at the very least make you more visible than you would normally be if you simply made your way around the site in everyday attire.
Some of the most common injuries sustained as the result of a construction accident include:
- Head injuries
- Broken limbs
- Fractured bones
- Broken feet/toes
As we have already pointed out, there are so many accidents that could occur on a construction site it would be impossible to list them all here.
