Injury in Sutton


Are you responsible for construction site health and safety?

If you are responsible for the health and safety of a construction site then you have a very important job to do. It will ultimately fall to you to ensure that no one suffers an accident and an injury in Sutton on your construction site.

Any failings on your part, or your team members, could mean that a worker, contractor, visitor or member of the public suffers an injury in Sutton and this means that they could claim compensation against you or your company. This could have a significant impact on budgets and timescales when it comes to completing the project at hand, especially if a key worker is injured and unable to continue working.

How to avoid a personal injury in Sutton

There are many ways that someone can be injured as a result of an accident in Sutton; however, there are many ways in which you can avoid it happening.

For example, we have recently helped a young mother who was injured as she was walking passed a construction site. She was on her lunch break and was just returning to her office when a screwdriver fell from the scaffolding of a building that was being constructed and hit her on the head.

At first she had no idea what had happened, but it soon became clear that one of the workers on site had dropped the screwdriver, and it had landed on our client.

The worker in question was not responsible for the accident in Sutton occurring, despite the fact it was his screwdriver, and he had dropped it. The actual cause of the accident was the fact that when the site was erected, the barrier separating the general public from the site was erected too close to where work was being conducted. Had the barrier been just a few yards back then the falling screwdriver would have landed within the barrier on the side of the site, rather than on a public footpath.

Such a simple error led to an injury in Sutton occurring, involving an innocent passer by in the accident.

Making a claim

It is easy for anyone to make a claim for compensation if they have been injured as a result of the actions of someone else. If they have not been to blame for the accident and it occurred within the last three years, then anyone can make a claim against the individual they believe is responsible.

Innocent parties can use Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test to find out how much compensation they might be entitled to receive, and we will do all we can to ensure they receive that compensation and get the justice that they deserve.

It is imperative that you do all you can as a site manager to make sure such injuries and accidents do not occur.
