Construction site injury lawyer in Blackfriars
Many Accident Advice Helpline lawyers are highly experienced in handling claims for clients who have been injured in accidents on construction sites. The first step is to identify who was to blame for the accident and this is often the employer. Most employers now take out employers’ liability insurance policies precisely for this type of claim.
Employers can be at fault for an accident by failing to risk assess a work task or for failing to provide the right type of equipment. One of the common accidents on construction sites involve a fall from a height. It is difficult to avoid working at a height on a construction site because of the nature of the work, so it is very important to select the correct type of equipment to carry this out safely. Scaffolding is usually the equipment of choice and this has to be erected and maintained properly. If employees are working from ladders then they must be the correct ladders for the job, they must be correctly sited and clean, and well maintained. Falls from a height can result in fatal or life-changing injuries.
