Construction Accident Compensation Claims

Construction sites are some of the most dangerous places to work. Both employers and the main contractor or developer have a responsibility to ensure that the site is safe, and must follow a number of rules and regulations to protect their workers at all times.

Our experience at The Claims Partnership is that the vast majority of accidents which happen on construction sites can be traced back to health and safety failings on the part of employers and main contractors.

Unfortunately, every year people do become injured because of an accident at a construction site. These accidents can not only be physically painful, but also frustrating due to the long term impacts. It could result in a permanent injury or hinder your ability to return to work.

If you feel you have suffered an injury that could have been avoided, then you might be entitled to make a construction accident claim. Receiving compensation won’t take away the injuries or the emotional consequences, but it can help to get your life back on track. Our expert solicitors can help you when you need it most.

Common causes of construction accidents

  • A fall from a ladder, scaffolding, down a shaft or uncovered hole
  • Being hit by a falling object
  • A worker suffers a back injury as a result of lifting a heavy or unsafe load
  • Dangerous or incompetent workmanship is carried out by a co-worker
  • A trip or fall as a result of a broken floor or path, a spillage, an object or ice
  • Electric shocks
  • Faulty or broken machinery

Construction accident statistics

  • Every year, 3% of workers in the Construction industry will sustain a work-related injury
  • In 2015/16, 43 workers in the Construction industry were fatally injured
  • Almost 2.2 million working days were lost in this sector due to workplace injuries
  • This includes 400,000 days that were lost due to work-related stress, depression or anxiety
  • Each year, 4% of workers suffer from an illness they believe to be work-related
