Compensation for building site accidents
If you’re looking for compensation for building site accidents you’ve come to the right place. Call us and we’ll talk you through the claiming process which is quick and simple. We’ll need to establish some details, so it’s a good idea to jot down what you can remember before you call. Think of all the little details as these can be the difference between a successful claim, and one that is not successful.
What we’ll need to know
When you call we’ll ask you lots of questions. This might seem intrusive initially, but remember we have to get to the bottom of what happened, so that we can build up an accurate picture of what happened to you. The first things we’ll want to know are that you fit the criteria for making a compensation claim. We’ll need to establish that:
- You had an accident in the last three years
- The accident was not your fault
- You received medical attention for your injuries
If this information fulfils the criteria, we’ll move on to the nitty-gritty. Where and when did the accident happen? What happened? Who was there? Were there any witnesses? We will want to know all about your injuries and all subsequent treatment that you have had.
Any other evidence you can point us too will also help us build your case. This can take the form of photos, CCTV, police reports etc.
Who was to blame?
Knowing who was to blame for your building site accident is important too. We need to know who is liable for your injuries so that we can make the claim. Given all of the health and safety that you would expect to find on building sites, was it carelessness on the part of a colleague, or negligence on the part of your employer that caused your accident?
As long as the accident was not your fault and happened during the last three years, and as long as you received medical attention for your injuries, then you may have a claim to pursue. Call us and ask for our advice.
