Construction site accidents in Wishaw are one of the most high-risk in terms of workplace accidents – in fact, they’re second only to agriculture. This is probably due to the physically demanding nature of the work, which often sees employees undertaking heavy lifting, operating dangerous machinery and working at great heights.
Employers of the construction industry are required by law to take steps to ensure the safety of each and every person they work with and must take out employer’s liability insurance to cover any claims that may be made against them. Should your employer fail in their duty of care, you may be injured and if this happens, you could be entitled to claim compensation for construction site accidents in Wishaw.
No matter how minor your injury may seem, if it required medical attention you may be eligible for a payout. Your first step should be to see a doctor; both to establish that you’re OK and to begin building a portfolio of evidence for your case. All injuries submitted for construction site accidents in Wishaw must have received some sort of medical attention. It must also have taken place in the last three years and have been someone else’s fault.
