Construction Accident Claims
Have you had an accident on a construction Site? Jefferies Solicitors are experts in helping people claim personal injury and construction accidents compensation.
The UK has one of the safest construction site records in Europe but there are still many people dying each year as a result of a construction site accidents and many more are injured because of accidents on construction sites or whilst working as a tradesperson.
Accidents that occur on construction sites may be due to working with faulty materials, inferior tools and equipment, malfunctioning machinery or negligence. If you have had an accident whilst working on a construction site you may be entitled to claim compensation for your construction injury.
Accidents On Construction Sites
Your employer has a legal responsibility to protect you from accident and injury whilst at work, whatever the environment, whether it be whilst working in construction or other employment.
It is vital therefore that employers of construction workers take steps to prevent construction site accidents. They must provide you with the necessary tools, machinery and safety equipment to allow you to carry out your job safely and they must maintain your workplace in safe condition. They must undertake risk assessments to ensure the construction site is as safe as possible and so reduce the risk of a work related accident.
