Construction Site Accidents

Even when all the safety procedures are followed, construction sites are dangerous places. Those running the sites aren’t just responsible for the builders, site managers and property developers, they’re also responsible for the safety and welfare of visitors and passers-by. They are often a site for large pieces of machinery, heavy tools and ladders, all of which pose risks not only to the workers who use them, but also to people around them.

Accidents on site can unexpectedly happen at any time and to anybody. They can be relatively minor to incredibly serious and can sometimes lead to the person being forced to take time off work or even being unable to perform their job. Understandably, the entire ordeal can be stressful, particularly when factoring in long and / or short term health issues.

Most construction companies make it a priority to ensure that health and safety regulations are met via the use of safety equipment such as hard hats, and adequate training for their employees. However, even the best equipment and training can’t guarantee total immunity from construction accidents. If you are involved in an accident on site, it may not be your fault. Tollers can help uncover whether the construction company is liable.

What to do when construction site accidents occur

If you have suffered injuries, your first priority should always be to see a doctor who can evaluate the extent of the damage and recommend advice on treatment and rehabilitation.

Although compensation may not make up for the trauma, it may help with any medical bills or long term care. If your accident has left you unable to work compensation may give you the opportunity to live your life through your rehabilitation.

Before applying for compensation, it is important to consider that the application process involves complex legal procedures, which is why you should seek the advice of Tollers to minimise the risk and maximise your potential compensation.
