Construction & Building Site Accident Claims

Construction & Building Site Accident Claims

Construction and building sites are extremely high risk areas, due to the nature of materials and machinery present which can cause serious injury. Falling material, and faulty electrics, along with other onsite hazards inevitably poses a severe threat to welfare of workers. Last year alone 133 professionals were fatally injured whilst on site.

Although the law requires employers to take the necessary precautions to safeguard the welfare of their employees, a high volume of construction workers are injured each year.

Where your employer has failed to meet the required safety regulations, causing you injury or harm you may be eligible to pursue a personal injury claim. To speak to an experienced solicitor who specialises in construction and building site injury claims contact Farleys on 01254606008, alternatively please complete the online enquiry form.

Building Site Injuries

Due to the dynamic nature of construction sites, workers are vulnerable to sustaining a wide range of injuries, the most common injuries sustained can be broken down into four categories:

  • Falls from a height
  • Contact with moving machinery
  • Falls, slips and trips
  • Handling injuries (RSI)

Statistics released by the HSE revealed that injuries sustained due to a slip, trip, or fall accounted for over a third of employee accidents, causing a loss of 1.9 million working days. For a free online claim assessment please complete the application form below.

Pursuing a Construction / Building Site Claim

Although there have been vast improvements in managing the risks posed to construction workers, with organisations actively taking steps to minimise the danger posed by industrial diseases, insufficient training or inadequate standards of safety are largely responsible for the vast majority of on site incidents.
