Construction Industry Injuries

Each year thousands of people are injured at work despite Employers taking steps to keep their Employees safe.   If you are injured at work you may be entitled to make a construction accident claim in which case it’s very important that you instruct a construction injury lawyer.  We are construction injury lawyers who specialise in construction accident claims, claiming compensation for Employees who have been injured at work whether that be in a factory, foundry, building site, etc.              

What is a Construction Accident?

Construction accidents vary far and wide from falling from heights such as scaffolding or a house roof to trapping and crushing injuries to arms, legs, fingers and toes.  Any type of accident at work resulting in a construction injury can lead to a construction accident claim.

Are you an Employee?

If you are an Employee, your Employer has a duty to make you reasonably safe whilst you work form them.  This means that they have to train you on an ongoing basis and also carry out Risk Assessments to make sure that the work you are doing and the place you are working at is safe.  If they do not do this and you are injured you need a construction injury lawyer so you can make a construction accident claim.

Are you Self Employed?

If you are self employed (such as a joiner or electrician) and suffer a construction injury you could still make a construction accident claim even though you are not actually an Employee.  The Building Contractor or Sub Contractor could have responsibilities towards you and your safety even though you are a specialist in your own field.  Just because you are self employed does not mean you cannot make a construction accident claim.
