SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS

together

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.

Employers' Duty of Care

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.

In addition, it is the responsibility of any independent contractors who are working on the same site to act responsibly and not cause injury through negligence or working practices that could be considered dangerous.

Types of Building and Construction Accident Claim

Many of the cases the expert solicitors at Forbes deal with on a daily basis involve accidents regarding:

  • Workers falling from height including scaffolding
  • Falling objects
  • Manual handling errors
  • Unsafe machinery
  • Electrocution
  • Trips
  • Collapsing trenches/foundations

There are of course many other types of accidents that can happen on a building site, and if you are injured at the fault of a third party, you could be entitled to make a construction accident compensation claim.

Each of our solicitors are experts in their field and can help you claim compensation for any injuries suffered whilst you were at work. For a free consultation with a Personal Injury Lawyer contact Forbes today.
