If you have been injured on a building or construction site the expert personal injury solicitors at Forbes are here to provide the very best in legal representation, advice and support.
Whilst working on a construction site, you are exposed to many dangers and hazards. Electrical faults, slippery areas, falling debris and material, faulty scaffolding, power tools, lifts, and internal construction site traffic all pose threats to workers, and can cause serious injuries if anything goes wrong.
Furthermore, injuries sustained on a construction site can have devastating consequences, leaving people unable to provide for their families due to loss of earnings and in some serious cases leave people with life changing injuries.
Your employer or main contractor has a care of duty to ensure all safety standards are met, you are provided with the appropriate safety gear and all machinery is working safely. If you are injured due to any of these basic safety needs not being met, you may be entitled to compensation.

All the way through my claim I have had matters thoroughly explained. Leonie Millard was most helpful and helped me considerably understand anything that needed to be dealt with.
I have found all the staff and the solicitors that I have seen have been very kind, thoughtful and very helpful. I cannot praise them enough and I would not go to anyone else at all.
Easy, regular and relevant communications both written and orally.
The entire process from my claim being taken was dealt with in a highly professional and more importantly timely manner.
I have used Forbes when pursuing a claim for a friend, along with every other legal matter I have been involved in, both personally and professionally. I cannot rate Forbes highly enough.
My Solicitor always returned my calls promptly and set my mind at rest about all of my concerns. Thank you!
I was extremely happy with David Mayor. Absolutely excellent in every way. Thank you.
Very satisfied with everything. Very helpful would recommend you to my friends.
Robin Bower and his secretary were very easy to talk to and always friendly.
John was fantastic through the whole process giving clear, sound advice.
I was very pleased with the outcome and would recommend Forbes Solicitors to anyone in the future.
The legal process can be difficult, complicated and very testing. I was involved in a contested claim against 2 Defendants and Leonie helped me through every step of the way through to trial.
I am happy with the way things progressed, the service was professional, quick, and my solicitor Leonie Millard was very approachable and explained things well.
I approached John Myles when I was at rock bottom and felt that I had exhausted every possibility of proving my case.
The service I received far exceeded my expectations.
As a person who is unaware of the law, I never felt at anytime overwhelmed, as your dealings with me were clear and professional. This has been very much appreciated.
