Construction Accident Claims

Have you had an accident on a construction site? Jefferies Solicitors are experts in helping people make personal injury and construction accident claims.

The UK has one of the safest construction site records in Europe. However, each year, there are still many people who die as a result of construction site accidents, and even more are injured in 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.

To learn more and to discuss your potential claim in confidence, contact our team on 0800 342 3206. Alternatively, complete our online contact form.

Accidents On Construction Sites

Your employer has a legal responsibility to protect you from accident and injury whilst at work, whatever the environment, whether you’re working in construction or another kind of 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 a safe condition. They must undertake risk assessments to ensure the construction site is as safe as possible and reduce the risk of a work-related accident.

There are many different types of injuries that can take place on a construction site. These are just a few that can take place that you could potentially make a compensation claim for.

  • Slip, trips and falls
  • Accidents from falling objects
  • Dislocations
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Limb and joint injuries
  • Amputation
  • Head or brain injuries
  • Spinal Cord injuries
  • Loss of eyesight
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Loss of hearing
  • Tinnitus
  • Manual handling injuries
  • Sprains, strains, pulled muscles, torn ligaments
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Burns
  • Back, neck or shoulder strain or sprain

How much compensation could I claim?

The amount of compensation you could receive will depend on the severity and nature of your injuries. For example, while a moderate toe injury could be worth up to £7,300, someone who has sustained a severe eye injury resulting in blindness could claim more than £130,000 for their injuries. To learn exactly how much compensation you might be entitled to, you should speak to us.

To find out more take a look at our compensation calculator.

You may also be able to claim for other losses you have experienced as a result of your injury. For instance, if you have had to take time off work, you may be able to recover the earnings you have lost. You may also be able to claim for prescription costs or travel expenses you have incurred travelling to or from medical or hospital appointments.
