The 11,000 residents of the village of Stoke Gifford are always trying to find ways to keep and also increase the beauty of their town. From the Bristol Ring Road to the huge green mass known as ‘Green Lung,’ this is a place where there is always something going on.
However, one of the things that residents see on a regular basis is construction sites, and where there is a building going up there are obviously dangerous risks, especially for the builders. If one of these workers is injured on site in an accident that was not their fault, their best option is to call an injury lawyer in Stoke Gifford in order for them to receive some sort of compensation.

What type of injuries call for an injury lawyer in Stoke Gifford?
So, from all the many injuries that you could suffer, which are specific to construction? And of those, which would need an injury lawyer in Stoke Gifford to be called in? The simple answer is any injuries caused in an accident that was not your fault, such as:
- Falling debris – Though any worker on a construction site knows that it is just good sense to wear a hard hat at all times, it is not always followed. This is why if debris falls off a scaffold or any part of a building and hits you on the head, or in fact on any part of your body, and are hurt as a result, you may have the basis for a claim.
- An accident caused by heavy equipment – One of the problems with working on a construction site is that there is a lot of heavy machinery. If you happen to be in the way of this machinery when it comes past you, or use it in a way that it was intended to be used but it malfunctions, you are not to blame for what happens and may be able to call in an injury lawyer in Stoke Gifford to help you to make a compensation claim.
