Are you claiming Wycombe construction injury claims after working in the construction industry?
Due to the nature of the work, the construction industry doesn’t always operate in the same way as businesses in other sectors. Whilst some construction firms do hire a core section of employees, they tend to hire sub-contractors as and when they are needed.
Using sub-contractors, rather than hiring employees, can be much easier as firms aren’t liable for their tax or national insurance. In addition to this, rather than having to fire employees and potentially pay them a redundancy payout, construction firms can simply let sub-contractors go at the end of their contract.
Although firms and businesses do tend to have less liability for contractors than employees, this doesn’t mean that they can treat them badly or that they can take advantage of workers. For example, sub-contractors are still covered by health and safety laws. If an employer was to inadvertently cause them to suffer an accident, they could still make Wycombe construction injury claims against them and obtain compensation.
If a construction worker does suffer an injury, it can have a catastrophic effect on their future career and their finances, particularly if they do work on a self-employed basis. If you’re hurt at work and you need to take a significant period of time off work in order to recover, you may be worrying about your income and how you will pay your essential bills.
Making Wycombe construction injury claims and obtaining compensation for your injuries can help to reduce these worries and can help you replace any income that you’ve lost. In addition to this, when you make your Wycombe construction injury claims, you may actually be able to have your compensation award increased to reflect the income that you’ve lost.
If you have already lost earnings or you fear that you will lose future earnings, it’s important to let your personal injury lawyer or solicitor know as they may be able to include this information when you make your Wycombe construction injury claims and you may receive more compensation than you first thought.
