Construction Industry

Construction Industry

A worker on a construction site is six times more likely to be injured or killed whilst at work. Whilst the UK has one of the better safety records in Europe, our construction sites still account for one third of all work fatalities.  Our solicitors can help on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis to ensure you get the compensation you deserve for your building site accident.

Making a compensation claim on behalf of a family member

If your next of kin has suffered a fatality on a construction site we can help you to claim compensation. Making a claim for compensation will obviously not be the first thing loved ones think of at such a tragic time but in some cases the compensation will be essential for the family to carry on after the death.  Strict time limits apply in personal injury and our expert solicitors can guide you through the process step-by-step.

Examples of Accidents at Work in the Construction Industry

Some examples of accidents in the construction industry include:-

  • Falling from heights;
  • Falling through fragile surfaces such as roof lights;
  • Falling from ladders, scaffolds and other high level work areas;
  • Being struck by moving vehicles;
  • Being struck by falling loads and equipment;
  • Being struck by collapsing structures and machinery;
  • Contact with harmful chemicals and fumes;
  • Lifting heavy loads;
  • Electrocution, burns and inhalation injuries;
  • Trips and slips;
  • Working with asbestos;
  • Injuries caused by the employees of other contractors;
  • Injuries caused by faulty plant and machinery;
  • Injuries caused by failure to provide adequate safety equipment or protective clothing.

If you are worried because the claim is against your employer please note your employer cannot dismiss you for making a compensation claim for an accident that you have had on a building site at work. This is not a legally justifiable reason to dismiss an employee, so could amount to unfair dismissal.
