Specialist Injury Lawyers in Sourton Cross


Specialist Injury lawyers in Sourton Cross

Over 2 million workers are employed in construction making it the largest industry in the UK. Unfortunately, it is also where most serious accidents happen as well.  The health and Safety Executive (HSE) have worked very hard over the last two decades to improve safety on building sites and have met with some success but the rates of deaths and injuries is still too high and they are continuing to work at it.

If you are injured on a construction site through an accident that was not your fault, you could speak to the specialist injury lawyers in Sourton Cross at Accident Advice Helpline to assist you to make a personal injury compensation claim.

Specialist Injury lawyers in Sourton Cross and employers duties

All employers have a legal duty to protect their employee’s health and safety, but because of the nature of the work on a building site, accidents happen, injuries occur and victims make a personal injury claim.  There are many things employers can do help reduce the risks, and they need to consider some of the things that cause accidents, such as:

  • Collapsing trenches and foundations
  • Accidents with power tools
  • Faulty lifts and hoists
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Movement of internal construction site traffic
  • Falling from ladders
  • Poor layout of the site
  • Insufficient or no safety briefings
  • Falls through weak floors and roofs
  • Falling objects and materials
  • Electrical faults
  • Safety harness failure

You may be able to make a personal injury claim using specialist injury lawyers in Sourton Cross, if you are injured as a result of any construction site accident that was not your fault.

Protective clothing

There is lots of protective clothing on the market for construction site workers, but you, or your employer, should always buy them from a reputable supplier as there are many fakes on the market. These will hopefully make any injury you may sustain, a bit less severe. Some of the items that might help are:

  • Dust masks
  • Safety gloves
  • Safety boots
  • High-vis jackets
  • Hard hats
  • Goggles
  • Ear guards
  • Ear protectors

The responsible party

There are so many different workers on site, it is not always easy to know who employees them.  Although generally you would expect the electrician to work for the electrical company and the bricklayer for the building company, you cannot be certain, and it may be important to know when you make a personal injury claim.
