Whiplash accident and compensation claims
If you have a scaffolding accident on a building site and you suffer a whiplash injury (or any other injury for that matter), then you may be entitled to make a whiplash accident compensation claim – using the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline to assist you.
If (for example) you are trying to repair a roof tile, or you are working on a construction site, then you should be adequately protected from a scaffolding accident, as there should be health and safety measure in place.
Some accidents on scaffolding can be fatal if a fall from height is involved, and certainly many serious scaffolding accidents happen every year in the UK.
Employers and contractors should protect your health and safety
Building sites and roofing jobs are dangerous employments for which there are many health and safety rules and regulations. Employers and contractors should make sure they comply with the rules, because if someone has an accident on their site, the could have to face a whiplash accident compensation claim, or a personal injury claim for an injury that is much more serious.
Hards hats and other safety gear should be worn at all times on site, to reduce the risk of a serious injury in what is the largest industry in the UK. Many extra safety rules have been introduced in the construction industry over the last twenty years, but the numbers of accidents on building sites is still higher than the national average for all other trades
