Construction Site Injury Claims

Construction and building sites can be dangerous places, particularly if an employer has not taken all of the necessary steps to ensure their employees are protected from potential accidents at work. If you have suffered an injury due to the negligence of your employer, you are eligible to make a compensation claim. The solicitors at JMW have helped many labourers, builders and construction professionals to claim the compensation they deserve.

If you have been injured while working on a construction site, contact us today on 0800 054 6570 to get your claim underway, or fill in our online enquiry form and let us know a suitable time to get in touch with you.

Causes of Injury

There are many ways in which you can suffer an injury while working on a building site, but the most common construction site claims usually involve:

  • Trips and slips on uneven surfaces
  • Poorly maintained machinery
  • Falling debris, tools and equipment
  • Falls from height, such as falling from scaffolding
  • Inadequate training and lack of supervision
  • Lifting and manual handling

Even if your accident does not fit into any of the above categories, if it occurred within the last three years and you were injured thanks to a third party’s negligence, contact JMW as soon as possible to make a claim.

An Employer’s Responsibility

Your employer has a duty of care to ensure that all reasonable steps are taken to avoid accidents at work. These steps include:

  • The provision of appropriate personal protective clothing.
  • Ensuring all employees are properly trained and supervised.
  • Placing safety barriers in appropriate areas, e.g. when working at height.
  • Displaying warning signs in hazardous areas.
  • Keeping the workplace clean and tidy.

If your employer breached their duty of care to you and this resulted in an injury, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.
