Working on a construction site, or building site, is not without risk, no matter how many safety precautions are put in place to protect everyone there. However, if you have been injured in an accident on a construction site or building site and someone else is to blame, you may be entitled to compensation. Our ‘no win, no fee’ Law Firm in Spelthorne solicitors have vast experience in working for those injured in accidents that weren’t their fault and are here for you in your time of need.
Types of Common Accidents and Injuries on Construction or Building Sites
Both building and construction sites are busy places with numerous hazards in every part of the area. From the machinery and structures integral to the work, and traffic moving in and about the area, it can only take one moment for a life to change forever. Especially in cases when the victim is in no way to blame, these moments can be completely devastating, and our ‘no win, no fee’ Spelthorne solicitors understand, and are ready to help.
The many injuries and hazards include:
- Falling from heights and objects falling from heights. These can cause injuries as minor as bruises and lacerations, or more serious ones such as broken bones, head and spinal injuries, and even, in worse cases, death.
- Machinery Faults or improper usage. If a piece of dangerous machinery is faulty or used by someone unqualified, the consequences can cause damage to the face and eyes from flying debris, crushed or amputated digits and limbs, or severe lacerations.
- Site Traffic. With so much going on at construction and building sites, it’s easy for someone driving to become distracted and cause injury to those around them. This can result in broken bones, head and spinal injuries, crushed or amputated limbs, and death.
Employee Rights and Protection
Our ‘no win, no fee’ Spelthorne solicitors are well aware of the legal health and safety regulations in place to protect those on construction and building sites, as you employer should also be. These include keeping machinery and temporary structures such as scaffolding and hoists safe and fully maintained, removing hazards that could cause slips, trips or dangerous obstructions, and provide every worker with the correct and necessary safety wear and personal protective equipment.
Furthermore, every worker using machinery or heavy equipment must be fully trained to do so. If your employer has failed to adhere to these requirements, and injuries have been sustained that were not the fault of the victim, then ‘no win, no fee’ Spelthorne solicitors might be able to help.
