Have you been injured by scaffolding?
With space at a premium, many towns and cities are granting planning permissions at an alarming rate. Whilst some councils have approved expansions and modifications, in numerous areas around the United Kingdom, new buildings are being constructed.
Although many of these buildings relate to commercial properties, much of the work is taking place in town centres and inner urban areas so members of the public are being affected by the work. As many people are forced to pass by construction sites every day, they could find themselves at risk of injury.
Similarly, with many residential properties undergoing renovations, people may feel at threat of an injury even when they are in their own homes or gardens. When work is being done, large trucks and lorries are often present and new materials are delivered regularly. This can mean that pavements and grass verges are taken up by construction workers and their materials. If the pavement outside your home is affected by the work, you may even find that you have trouble accessing your own property.
When the work is carried out by the council, they do tend to try and let local homeowners and residents know in advance so that they can make plans and limit the effect of the work. For example, you may be asked to park your car elsewhere so that the construction vehicles can access the area or you may simply be warned of the excessive noise you’re likely to encounter because of the work.
Due to the amount of work being done, it’s unsurprising that accidents and injuries can occur from time to time. If you’ve been hurt because of scaffolding which wasn’t supported correctly or because of other construction work, you may be surprised to learn that you could be eligible to make a compensation claim with injury solicitors in Walworth.
