Before any new construction work is undertaken, owners have a duty to conduct a thorough risk assessment in order to minimize the possibilities of accidents to their workforce and the general public.

How long do I have to make a claim?

If the accident in which you were injured happened in Britain, you would normally have three years from its date to file a personal injury compensation claim. However, there are some accidents and the injuries resulting from them for which you have much less time to file a claim. You need to contact a firm of personal injury lawyers near you, or us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out precisely how long you have to claim.

How much compensation will I receive?

There are broad bands of amounts of compensation laid out by the Judicial College, and the amounts vary with the severity of your injuries. If you would like a rough estimate of the amount of compensation you could expect to be awarded if your claim were successful, visit our Accident Advice Helpline website and take the 30 Second Test.
