Accidents at work can be a common occurrence depending on the inherent risks involved in the job you are doing, and the standard of health and safety management your employer has in place. Construction is one industry sector where many hazards can exist and where procedures aren’t always properly managed because of the changing nature to construction sites day-to-day, so if you are employed in construction and have been involved in an accident at work, you can make a construction accident claim with Ison Harrison, the leading accident at work solicitors in Leeds & Yorkshire.

Making a construction accident claim

Where you have suffered a workplace accident and it wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a claim for compensation for your injuries, suffering, rehabilitation and any loss of earnings. Claims for construction accidents start with establishing the facts of the accident and who was responsible for the accident occurring.

Our experienced personal injury team will speak to you and piece together the chain of events which led to your construction accident. This will involve taking witness statements and gathering evidence with a view to being able to prove that the accident was as a result of negligence on the part of your employer. With a free initial consultation we can give you a clear indication on the likelihood of success in pursuing a construction accident claim. After this, if you have grounds to make a claim, we will take on your case on a ‘no win no fee’ basis, so contact us today to start the ball rolling.

Common construction accidents

The construction industry, by its very nature, is one of the most hazardous industries and where many accidents are seen, alongside factory accidents and warehouse accidents. In construction, the following accidents are often reported:

  • falling from a height
  • being struck by a moving object
  • being struck by a vehicle
  • injury from defective equipment, or equipment you were not trained to use
  • manual handling accidents
  • slips or trips

In all these cases we can help to establish liability – where fault can be evidenced in risk assessment, training, procedures, negligence or direct actions – and to put together a process to award you with suitable compensation for any injuries and financial loss.
