Construction accidents

Construction sites and building sites can be particularly hazardous and construction accidents do occur. Risk can be reduced with the correct training, equipment and policies.

Injuries commonly occur on building or construction sites. Heavy machinery, tools and noise can be a recipe for risk to even the most experienced construction worker, especially if not handled properly with the correct policies and training.

Some common construction accidents include:-

  • Forklift truck accidents
  • Slips and trips
  • Being struck by a falling object
  • Arm and leg injuries
  • Fractures and breaks
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Falls from rooves or scaffolding
  • Machinery accidents
  • Explosions and fires
  • Electrical accidents

Construction accidents can be very serious and leave victims out of work for long periods or even permanently, causing long term distress. Bills never stop coming and there will always be costs associated with recovery and rehabilitation. If that victim is you, we can help you get the compensation you are owed. This compensation will cover all losses, therefore your medical costs, mortgage or any other commitment that is affected by your injury.
