Compensation for broken bones on a building site

In general there are some workplaces which tend to be more dangerous than others and a building site definitely falls under this category when you are looking at personal injury claims. The sheer nature of a building site and the fact that it uses a large amount of machinery and man-made structures, generally means there are many hazards around which have the potential to be dangerous – and in this situation you need to take the appropriate safety precautions.

Accidents can happen on a building site, but if you feel that you have sustained injuries which could have been avoided, or which were caused by the negligence of another person, then you could look to make a compensation claim to cover any costs you have incurred.

Who is responsible for my safety on a building site?

In general any building site that you work on will have an appointed safety officer and a site manager – both of which are responsible for ensuring that employees can work in a safe environment. Although accidents do happen, it is the responsibility of these staff members to ensure that all necessary safety precautions have been taken, equipment has been provided and training has been given. If they have failed to do this then you could consider making a claim.

What are some examples of where I can claim?

  • Building sites can be home to a number of different personal injury claims, but some situations where you may consider looking for compensation include:
  • Injuries sustained during a fall from height
  • Injuries sustained through poor safety procedures
  • Injuries sustained by a lack of safety equipment
  • Injuries sustained through poor training
  • Injuries caused by another staff member.
