Construction Accident Compensation Claims

All employers have a duty to ensure your safety and well-being while you are working on their property. It is their responsibility to follow health and safety regulations by facilitating:

  • Appropriate on-going risk assessments
  • Suitable training
  • Safe procedures and methods practised at all times
  • The issue of correct Personal Protective Equipment

If you suffer an injury following an accident on a construction site, and you feel it was someone else’s fault you have a right to make a compensation claim for personal injury.

Construction accidents in the UK

As far as accidents in the workplace are concerned, statistics show that the most dangerous industry in the UK is the construction industry. Even though the amount of incidents has reduced significantly over the last 20 years it still remains high risk. A recent report by the Health and Safety Executive shows that while the amount of individuals employed in the construction industry stands at around 5% it actually accounts for 31% of fatal accidents and 10% of reported personal injuries.

What incidents could occur on a building site?

Due to the fact that a building site is usually open to the weather, surfaces are more unpredictable and employees are likely to be working with heavy objects or machinery at height, there is more likelihood of incidents. However, it is a legal duty of every employer to risk assess every situation and procedure in order to meet minimum health and safety standards and guidelines. Incidents could involve falling from heights, slipping, tripping, complications with dangerous machinery and injuries resulting from falling debris or objects.

Making a claim for a construction accident

If you are an employee who has suffered an injury through no fault of your own you can make a claim for personal injury compensation. The reward you receive may offer financial help in supporting you through the period of your injury. It may also help prevent further accidents happening as changes to health and safety measures are tightened. Employers expect there to be compensation claims and factor this into their budgets by taking out liability insurance. At our expert solicitors can guide you through the process.
