    Building sites can be incredibly dangerous places, but that doesn’t mean that if you work on one you should expect to get injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, while trying to earn a living. Your employer has a responsibility to make sure that you’re safe while carrying out your duties, so if you do get injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault while you’re working, you might be able to use the services of an injury lawyers Saline solicitor to sue for compensation.

    It’s worth bearing in mind that you may still be able to win a pay-out from your employer if your behaviour in some way contributed to the severity of your injuries. If you were deemed by a court to have been in any way negligent for your injuries being worse than they perhaps would have been, you could still win a pay-out after becoming injured in a work-related accident that wasn’t your fault, although your compensation might be reduced.

    By way of example, you may still be able to sue if something was dropped onto your head while working on a building site, but may have any pay-out you were entitled to reduced if you were not wearing any requisite head protection you should have had on. (It is illegal to be on a building site in the UK without wearing a hard hat) So, it will be worth contacting an injury lawyers in Saline solicitor to find out where you stand even if you feel your behaviour may have contributed to your injuries in any way, shape or form.
