Accidents on Construction Sites

Workers and labourers are often injured on building or construction sites, through no fault of their own. Don’t be put off making a claim if you have been injured because of someone else’s fault.

  • There are various health and safety laws to safeguard labourers and site workers that aim to protect you and give you the right to claim if you have been injured
  • Failure by the building site controller to comply with strict safety regulations may result in a breach of duty of care owed to you 
  • You are entitled to compensation if it can be proved that someone else is at fault 
  • This may be the building site where you are working, your fellow worker, or the main or sub-contractor 
  • Labourers and workers on sites are frequently exposed to hazardous risks in the construction industry 
  • Did you work on safe premises, have safe working and personal protective equipment to safeguard against hazards? 
  • We will assess whether you may have been exposed to any potential risks 
  • Quite often labourers are put off making a claim for injuries whilst working on a site because they don’t know who to claim against. At SC Law, our solicitors will establish the most likely responsible party and your likely prospects of success
  • Sadly there are occasions when a worker suffers a catastrophic or very serious injury.  If this affects you or a family member, please go to our dedicated serious injuries section, where your claim will be handled by a specialist personal injury lawyer.  

Don’t be put off making a legitimate claim against the building or construction company if you are worried that you might be victimised if you make a claim. This rarely happens and most contractors are used to claims being made and accept it as a fact and should have insurance in place to cover against such accidents. You should not delay in making a claim as vital evidence may be needed and there is a strict three year time limit in which to make a claim.

Compensation can go a long way to ease the burden that an injury at work has caused.  At SC Law, our personal injury lawyers have specialist knowledge in identifying and calculating your losses and expenses and will obtain the maximum amount of compensation that you may be entitled to, particularly where a serious injury is involved.

Choosing the right solicitor for your case is an important decision.  It is essential you chose a solicitor who is a specialist in the construction industry or work related accident claims.  Do not simply go to the nearest solicitor, or for example the solicitor who did your Will or conveyancing.  Similarly do not feel obliged to use a law firm appointed by your home or any other legal expenses insurance.  When making a personal injury claim, you should be selective about which lawyer you use and have the freedom to appoint any lawyer of your choice.  At SC Law we are experts in dealing with claims for compensation for personal injury.

Losses and Expenses

Where appropriate we can claim for financial costs you have incurred as a result of your injury, such as loss of earnings, travelling, medication costs, rehabilitation, aids and equipment and assistance with housework or gardening. This may include future expenses where you are unable to return to work as a result of your injury, or have to return to a lesser paid job, which may include reduced benefits such as loss of pension or rehabilitation, aids and equipment and assistance with home help.
