    We at Accident Advice Helpline are a highly regarded legal firm who can advise you if you are looking for a personal injury solicitor in Plymouth to handle your compensation claim. We can advise on the whole range of personal injury cases from the Plymouth area and deal with hundreds of common cases such as road traffic accidents and slips, trips and falls.

    We can also help with occupational claims and these often involve claiming from an employer who was responsible for an employee’s accident and subsequent injuries. The employer would be made to pay some money (compensation) to the injured employee.

    Occupational accidents

    Occupational injury claims are very common from building sites. These can be very hazardous places to work and visit. There are employees working from a height, working with heavy machinery and vehicles. With help of personal injury lawyers an injured employee can get the compensation they need. Many of them start off by calling us here at Accident Advice Helpline to get the process going.

    There are many steps that employers can take to prevent accidents on construction sites and avoid claims with a personal injury solicitor in Plymouth. Some of these steps relate to the movement of vehicles around the site.

    Just a selection of the steps that can be taken to avoid this are listed here.

    Injury solicitor in Plymouth – construction vehicle accidents

    There are several ways of preventing accidents involving vehicles on building sites but the most reliable method is always going to be the complete separation of vehicles and pedestrians. A responsible employer would do the following to keep their employees safe.

    They would minimise the number of vehicles that are moving around the site by providing car parks near to the entrance and provide strict controls on which vehicles can enter the working area. Some also locate the storage areas at the outskirts of the site or very near the entrance so that heavy goods vehicles making deliveries do not have venture very far into the site.

    Training is also a crucial element of vehicle safety. It is very important that all vehicle drivers are suitably qualified and have received appropriate safety training and instruction. Training is not a one-off requirement. It needs to be updated on a regular basis. Reversing is one of the more hazardous procedures and needs to be carefully controlled. One-way systems and turning circles can help to achieve this but if they are not possible then an appointed signaller may be needed along with alarms and driver CCTV.

    If you are an employee on a building site who has been injured in an accident that was not your fault, then an occupational injury solicitor in Plymouth may be able to help you start a claim. Talk to our Accident Advice Helpline personal injury experts about this today.
