Building Site Accidents

Whether you are a construction worker, site manager, builder or labourer, construction companies should prioritise the safety of their workers. Building sites are known to pose many dangers to visitors and workers and are unfortunately a common scene of workplace accidents and injuries.

Work using tools, machinery and hard-wearing heavy equipment, often at heights all create hazards. Building site accidents can lead to injuries which can pose serious health issues.1 in 10 construction workers are injured on site every year.

Building site accidents can happen unexpectedly at any time and to anyone working in the construction industry. Even if you are not working in the construction industry, but are visiting or walking past a building site, you may still get injured. Building site accidents can lead to serious short and long term health issues, possibly forcing a worker to give up their usual job or take time off work, as well as causing high levels of stress.

Whilst most workplaces prioritise the health and safety requirements of their employees and others using special safety equipment such as hard hats and training given to employees on the job, this may not always be the case. If you have been involved in a building site accident it may not have been your fault but the fault of the construction company.

After Your Building Site Accident

If you have been involved in a building site accident, it is essential to begin by seeking medical advice and treatment for your injuries.

Following the assessment of your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for your accident. Although compensation can never make up for the pain and suffering it can help to give you the financial support through a stressful time, especially if your injuries mean you are unable to work or if you have to pay for medical care.

Many people are put off claiming against their employer. However, it is their insurance company who will take the liability. The process of can be complicated and time consuming. For those claims in particular, it is essential to seek the advice of a legal expert.  As the leading personal injury specialists in the area, Tollers are best placed to help you, going above and beyond to win cases other law firms may reject.
