When you need to file a claim through a lawyer in Callander
Construction workers construct anything including houses, schools, skyscrapers, roads, bridges and shopping centres. However, this is a high-risk occupation and workers should therefore be provided with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as hard hats, goggles, boots, fluorescent jackets as well as proper training and a safe working environment. Hazards signs should be installed clearly showing the potential dangers there are around the construction site and nearby areas.
If this is not done and a worker, driver, pedestrian or any other member of the public gets hurt and they are not to blame, then they may make a personal injury compensation claim against the construction company. Most injuries are from fall from heights, falling objects and the machinery in use.
- Burns-can be caused by heated tar and concrete, chemicals, flammable materials and hazardous substances.
- Eye injuries-workers should be provided with goggles. Welders are prone to this injury.
- Shoulder and back injuries-due to lifting or lowering and pulling or pushing heavy loads or objects.
- Knee and ankle injuries-caused by straining tendons, ligaments and muscles as a result of the work.
- Industrial deafness-caused by excessive noise. The deafness may be partial or total.
- Electrocution-this is caused by electrical wires which can lead to serious injuries or death.
- Paralysis-is a life-long condition. The no-fault victim should be compensated for medical expenses, loss of earnings (past and future), care costs, travel costs as well as home moving or adaptation costs.
- Post-traumatic stress disorder-worry, fear, anxiety and depression should be considered when making a personal injury compensation claim.
- Fatality-many deaths are reported in construction sites.
