Building Site Accident Claims

Get in touch

Construction is one of the most dangerous industries you can work in.

There are more than 20,000 accidents on UK construction sites each year. While many of these may be dismissed because injuries are minor, they should still result in building site accident claims.

This would force lessons to be learned, standards to improve and this alarming amount of accidents to begin to fall.

At Jones Whyte, we understand that making a claim against your current employer can be difficult. However, Jones Whyte’s personal injury lawyers have the skills and experience to navigate thorny building site claims.

We will support you every step of the way, whether that involves securing immediate medical care such as physiotherapy or ensuring that you are kept updated on the claim.

Contact Jones Whyte today to begin your building site injury claim.

Making a claim

While a building site injury compensation claim may have unique things to consider, the process is roughly the same as any other personal injury claim.

We will begin by taking your statement. This allows us to establish exactly what happened, how your life has been affected and what would be required to put things right.

We then begin the process of gathering evidence. This could include:

  • Witness testimony.
  • Medical reports.
  • Expert testimony.
  • Site CCTV, if available.

At this point, we will inform the other side of the claim, and calculations will begin to figure out an appropriate level of compensation.

Most building site accident claims are settled out of court. In the unlikely event that court action is necessary, you’ll have tough and experienced litigators from Jones Whyte on your side.

If you’ve been injured in construction, make a building site claim today.

Types of injuries

It doesn’t matter how minor you may think your injury is. If you have been injured on a building site as a result of negligence, then you can make a claim.

Building sites are inherently risky places, and the industry doesn’t have a particularly good safety record. Only by making claims for injuries will standards improve.

Some of the most common injuries suffered in building sites are:

  • Head injuries.
  • Spinal cord injuries.
  • Broken bones.
  • Eye injuries.
  • Muscle strains.

Many of these have the potential to be life-changing or even fatal.
