Our experienced construction injury lawyers will give you the best possible opportunity to secure the maximum compensation that you are entitled to as a result of the incident. We also have vast experience within our team of assisting those who have suffered due to poor health and safety practice in the workplace, including on construction sites where the margins for error are finer and the outcome of injuries more severe. We’ll discuss the incident which led to your injuries and work with you to obtain all the necessary evidence required to put together a strong construction injury claim on your behalf.
Sometimes, accidents on construction sites are totally unavoidable – for example when the accident was the cause of a fault that should have been apparent, or a mistake that couldn’t be avoided. In other cases, though, it could be the fault of the employer due to negligence, a mistake that could have been avoided, and/or a lack of care. Your employer on a construction site has to ensure that all reasonable and practical measures have been taken to ensure that the health and safety of all present on the site is maintained to a high standard.
In the UK, you can make a construction accident claim against your employer if they have failed to adhere to the regulations set out in the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 or Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999. Your employer must also maintain a high standard of testing and risk assessment on site, complying with The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 and the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992. You may be able to make a claim against your employer if they have:
A successful compensation claim can be used to help you cover all costs related to your injury and recovery, as well as general damages to cover the injuries that you have suffered, both physically and psychologically.
The cost of making a construction injury compensation claim might seem prohibitive and a stumbling block at first, but we are here to make sure you have all the help you need. Give our team a call and we can talk through all available funding options for you including any relevant insurance policies that will cover the cost of a legal claim.
In the majority of cases we can act for you on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis in the form of a CFA (Conditional Fee Agreement). A CFA ensures that, should your claim for construction injury compensation be unsuccessful, you will not pay a penny towards the associated costs.
When it comes to making construction injury claims, it is important to be aware that there is a time limit to being able to start proceedings. As with other types of personal injury or medical negligence compensation claim, you have three years in which to start the ball rolling on making a compensation claim.
This three-year period begins either from the date of the incident which led to your injuries, or three years from the date in which you realised your injuries were as a result of your employer’s negligence on a construction site. If the person who suffered injuries was under the age of 18 at the time of the accident, their parent or guardian can make a claim on their behalf, or they have three years from the date of their 18th birthday in which to make construction accident claims.
