What Our Clients Say

How JMW Can Help

Our experienced and knowledgeable solicitors can work on cases involving any type of construction site accident. Compensation secured will help to cover medical costs, loss of earnings and any other expenses you have incurred as a result of your injury. 

We will do our utmost to secure the maximum amount of compensation for you at this stressful time of your life. 

The most common types of building site accidents that we have dealt with involve: 

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

If your accident does not fit into any of the categories above, but it occurred within the last three years and was caused due to somebody else’s negligence, contact JMW Solicitors 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 has breached their duty of care and this resulted in an injury on a building or construction site, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.
