Injury lawyer in Woolwich


A large scale construction project could lead to contact with an injury lawyer in Woolwich

Woolwich is situated within the London Borough of Newham. It is linked to North Woolwich by the Woolwich Ferry and the Woolwich Foot Tunnel. Woolwich has always been an important location for transport links with the ferry terminal, Docklands Light Railway link and the now closed North London Line Station, which at one point also included the Old Station Museum.

North Woolwich transport links are being further developed with the new Crossrail project, which will be using the historical nearby Connaught Tunnel and parts of the North London Line Route. A new tunnel under the Thames at North Woolwich is also part of the new scheme, which aims to provide a high-frequency commuter/passenger train service across Central London.

The Crossrail scheme is a major engineering project which includes the construction of 26 miles of new tunnels, along with new stations and the laying of new overground railway routes. This is all taking place through busy and built-up Central London. The first trains are thought to be able use the central section of the scheme from 2018, with further lines being opened up upon completion.

Huge numbers of workers have found employment within the £15.9 billion Crossrail project. It has become Europe’s largest construction project. At the peak of construction, 14,000 people are thought to be needed to work on the scheme. Employees working on the Crossrail scheme include a range of workers including civil engineers, geotechnical engineers, tunnelling engineers, construction workers, surveyors, railway engineers and archaeologists. Any one of these workers could suffer an accident at work meaning they may need to speak to a personal injury lawyer in Woolwich.

All construction projects are bound by the Health and Safety Executive’s stringent requirements to reduce on-site hazards. Contractors working on such a large scale project as the Crossrail scheme need to be vigilant with regards to their employees’ safety. If employers are deemed to have caused an accident at work due to their own negligence, then they may need to provide compensation for those injured. This can be obtained by speaking to an injury lawyer in Woolwich.

Many hazards have had to be considered and reduced on the Crossrail project. These range from slips, trips and falls to the potential for workers to be injured by moving vehicles or equipment, such as the massive tunnel boring machines used to create the new tunnels. Further hazards have included ground investigation within land known to be contaminated by the burial of victims of anthrax and bubonic plague. Risk of other illnesses and infections such as leptospirosis must also be considered. If you have developed an illness on site and you think this is your employer’s fault, then you could make an injury claim.
