Have you been hurt whilst working in construction?
Although working in the construction industry can lead to an illustrious career, it isn’t without its dangers. Whilst many begin working in the industry at a young age, there is significant room for progression with many people going on to be foremen, supervisors and site managers.
At each stage of your career in the construction industry, you’re likely to be surrounded by heavy industrial machinery which, obviously, requires significantly training to use. Even experienced construction workers can find themselves hurt because of a sudden or unexpected injury.
Whilst communication is normally good on a site, the noise of the machinery can mean that people are sometimes unaware of what is happening around them. If a construction worker isn’t aware what machinery is to be used, they may not be able to exit the area quickly enough and they could suffer an injury as a result.
Due to the nature of the work, most construction projects require workers to be responsible and physically fit. Therefore, any injury can mean that construction workers are required to take significant periods of time off work or even stop working altogether.
As many construction workers are classified as self-employed, rather than employees, being injured or unwell can have a significant financial impact on them and their families. In many instances, construction workers won’t receive sick pay so a sudden loss of income can have an extremely detrimental effect on their lives.
However, if you’re a construction worker and you’ve been hurt at work but it wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a claim for compensation with help from a personal injury lawyer in Barmouth. Providing you can show that someone or something else was responsible for your injuries, it’s possible that a personal injury lawyer in Barmouth will be able to assist you and you could obtain compensation.
