Have you been the victim of an accident that was not your fault? More importantly, could that accident have been avoided if only others around you had taken more care? Did you sustain your injuries on a building site? If you did and you want to know more about claiming for a construction accident, then call Accident Advice Helpline today for more information.
Injuries as the result of a construction accident are thousands in number in the United Kingdom. For some, their injuries are enough to require perhaps a few stitches and a few days’ recovery time. For others, their injuries can be much more severe with long-term consequences.
Your injuries have left you unable to work
It may well be that you are considering claiming for a construction accident because of the severity of your injuries and also because of the amount of time you have lost from work. Many of those working on construction sites do so as sub-contractors and may not be entitled to sickness leave or pay if they have been injured.
You may well be one of those who is self-employed and is unable to earn a living because of your injuries. Not being able to work, and earn, can cause financial hardship as well as having to deal with the injuries you suffered.
Your physical and emotional well-being can suffer
Being unable to work because of physical injuries can also lead to emotional issues such as depression, low self-esteem, lack of self-worth and a desire to isolate oneself from family and friends. While it may be accepted by those around you that the situation is not your fault, as a breadwinner this can do little to alleviate your distress.
Many of those who approach us and require information on claiming for a construction accident, do so not only because of their physical injuries but also as a result of the emotional turmoil they have experienced.
Sadly, if the victim of an accident suffers from depression or emotional distress, then it is more than likely that this will have a knock-on effect on their family. While family and friends will come together to support you, it is very difficult to bounce back especially if you are not able to support them financially.
