Had a construction related injury? Make an injury claim in Tandragee
The construction industry’s safety procedures have been radically overhauled over the past ten years following serious life changing injuries, and even fatalities, as a result of work related accidents. The responsibility for training, supervision, instruction, health and safety procedures and maintenance of equipment lies with the employer.
If you, or someone you know, have been injured whilst working in a construction industry related accident that wasn’t your fault and occurred within the last 3 years, then you are legally entitled to make an injury claim in Tandragee.
There may be many causes of construction related accidents including:
- insufficient guard rails when working at height
- obstructions when working at height on a platform
- poor lighting
- other site users creating a hazard or distraction
- overhead obstacles leading to crushing
- poor weather conditions such as icy, wet or slippery surfaces that are not treated
- obstacles at ground floor level such as site materials that are incorrectly stored
Injuries which may result from a construction work related accident can be serious:
- Broken bones particularly limbs
- Head injuries including brain damage
- Crush injuries to the abdomen and limbs
- Spinal or back injuries
Whilst it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that workers adhere to health and safety procedures whilst working on site, the employees also have a responsibility to ensure that any defects in machinery are reported so that they can be repaired or replaced as soon as possible. If a self-employed contractor is working on a construction site, then it is their responsibility to ensure that they have adequate head protection and safety clothing whilst on site and that they adhere to the site management procedures relating to health and safety.
Making your injury claim
A construction related accident can have serious consequences for the employee due to the nature of the work:
- Often at height on a ladder or mobile elevated platform
- In confined spaces
- Working with heavy, noisy and large scale machinery
- Often working alone
