Construction accidents in the Bristol and Bath area that may lead to an injury claim
If someone is hurt on a local construction site due to an accident which wasn’t their fault, they may have grounds to make a claim. They can do this because their employer has a responsibility to keep them safe, which if an accident occurs, is not being lived up to and can result in injury:
- Crushing incidents – if a machine is not used properly according to the safety precautions prescribed, you may be involved in an accident that crushes parts of your body. More people than you can imagine have been involved in such incidents that have left them with mangled fingers. They can then not return to work and should make an injury claim to seek compensation.
- Collisions – you might think that collisions only happen on the streets, but this is not the case. These can happen anywhere anytime when someone on a construction site is not paying attention and may result in injuries including head trauma and broken bones.
- Falling equipment – with a construction worker who has to keep so many items with them at all times, sometimes a wrench, a screwdriver or a hammer may fall. If it falls on you and knocks you unconscious, leaving you with injuries, you may have a claim.
