Accidents on construction sites happen all too often, despite strict guidelines from the Health and Safety Executive. If you have an accident on a construction site you should talk to one of our work place accident specialists at Edwards Hoyle. They will be able to advise you, free of charge, whether you should pursue compensation from the party at fault, whether that is your employer, the site owner, or whoever is responsible for the safe running of the site.
The construction industry is vital for our country, but it carries high levels of risk, in particular where a number of contractors are working on a particular site, each engaged in different tasks, creating a challenging project management agenda.
In Britain site safety is taken very seriously and the duty of care of a site owner or operator is considerable. Their responsibilities extend to include the organisation of a site, and that may be as much about keeping people out when the site is closed as it is about keeping you safe at work.
Unfortunately accidents happen still, and when heavy machinery and equipment, working at height and demolition are involved an accident can be serious, potentially meaning that you are unable to work again for some time, or at all.
What can I claim for if I have a construction site accident?
If you're involved in a construction site accident we'll help you to claim appropriate damages to cover loss of earnings, any injuries you may have sustained, and other additional expenses that have happened as a result of your injuries such as immediate, or ongoing medical care, changes to your home or car and care for those who depend upon you.
