    Claiming for building site accidents


    Claiming for building site accidents is much easier than you imagine it would be, particularly if you approach us here at Accident Advice Helpline. We’re a law firm that was established in the year 2000, and since then we have helped hundreds of clients, just like you, win compensation for their construction related accidents.

    Tell us about your accident

    How did your building site accident occur? Given the large amounts of health and safety that are used throughout the construction injury, it is a constant surprise that so many accidents happen. The things is, while the HSE can legislate for many potential mishaps, and even though it learns through experience as we all do, you can never quite take the human factor out of an accident.

    Accidents on building sites tend to fall into two categories. In the first category we have accidents that have happened because of a colleague. Perhaps your colleague was careless and that had ramifications for you. Perhaps they didn’t reset a machine, or turn it off properly, perhaps they weren’t looking where they were going and there was a collision.

    The second category of accident is negligence. This may be where your employer is supposed to have offered you proper training but hasn’t, or should provide you with the correct equipment or clothing and hasn’t done so. Your employer may have been trying to cut corners for some reason, and so health and safety has gone by the board. If this is the case, you definitely have a claim to make for your injuries.
