What is a construction injury claim? 

When you are working on or visiting a construction site, there’s plenty of risk, and construction sites can be very dangerous places. Whether it’s working with heavy machinery and specialised equipment, to working at great heights without proper training or equipment, incorrectly carrying heavy loads, or working with dangerous chemicals; the risks of injury on construction sites are endless. 
 
Because of these elevated risks, construction sites are subject to their own regulations including The Construction (Design and Management) regulations, as well as standard workplace safety practices, such as the Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974. When you are working on a construction site, it is your employer’s responsibility to follow these regulations. 
 
If your employer has breached this duty of care to you, and minimised the risks of injuries, then you could be entitled to make a no win no fee construction injury claim with our specialist no win no fee accident at work solicitors. To speak to a no win no fee solicitor about your potential building site injury claim, or construction injury claim simply contact us online here for a free no obligation consultation within one working hour.

Construction site accident statistics 2022: 

In the most recent statistics, from 2020-2021, there were 39 fatal injuries to workers, and 61,000 non-fatal injuries to workers each year averaged for the last 3 years, on construction sites. Of these construction injuries at work, 26% were slip and trip accidents, 19% were manual handling injuries, 19% were falls from height, and a further 12% were related to workers being struck by a moving object. The most significant of these statistics was that for fall from height rates in construction, which was over double that of the average rate for all industries. 
 
Within this same period, it is reported that a total of 1,260 notices were issued by HSE to construction sites. Of these notices, 46% were improvement notices and 54% were prohibition notices. There were also 76 prosecution cases led by HSE, 87% of which came with a conviction for at least one offence, and £5.3 million in total fines averaging around £80,000 per conviction. These statistics show no significant increase from previous years, but clearly show that the risks associated with construction work is notable, and that construction employees should act with caution when working on a building site.

Occupational risks when working on a building site: 

Our accident at work solicitors know that there have been notable improvements in construction site safety over recent years, and the number of construction site workers being injured has dropped significantly. However, this does not mean that construction is not still a high-risk industry, with a number of associated health hazards. 
 
Some of the occupation health risks associated with construction work, according to the HSE include: 
 
Injury- construction and building work job roles are one of the occupations with the highest estimated presence of associated back injuries, as well as upper limb disorders. Manual handling is the most commonly reported cause injuries that impact employees for over seven days at a time. 
 
Occupational cancer- as well as physical injuries, construction has the largest number of occupational cancer cases amongst all of the industrial sectors. The construction industry accounts for over 40% of occupational cancer deaths and cancer cases, and the annual statistics are thought to be around 5,000 occupational cancer cases and approximately 3,700 deaths each year. The HSE adds that the most significant cause of these cancers is asbestos (70%) followed by silica (17%) working as a painter and diesel engine exhaust (6-7% each). 
 
Hazardous substances- there are a number of workplace processes and roles on a construction site that emit dusts, fumes, vapours or gases into the air. These might not cause immediate problems to employees, but they can be significant causes of breathing problems and lung diseases that can cause long-term damage. 
 
This information highlights just how many risks come with working on a construction site, and the number of injuries and illnesses that construction workers can experience as part of their job role. If you have suffered from an injury or illness of any kind when working in the construction industry, then do not hesitate to get in touch with our no win no fee accident at work solicitors online here, and speak to a no win no fee solicitor within one working hour on a free, no obligation basis. 

What do you do after a building site accident? 

If you have been injured in a building site accident, you may be wondering ‘What do you do after a building site accident?’, or ‘what to do after a building site accident’. This is an important question, and one that our specialist accident at work solicitors are here to help with. 
 
There are certain actions that should be taken after any accident at work causing injury, and these actions can help with any subsequent accident at work claims. For a full overview of what to do after a building site accident causing injury, see this here. 

Slip, trip and fall construction accident claims: 

Every year, thousands of building site workers are injured in a slip, trip or fall at work, with around 1000 of these building site accidents resulting in broken bones. These slips and falls on building sites are caused by a number of things, including: 
 
Obstacles and objects left out 
 
Uneven surfaces 
 
Wet surfaces 
 
Trailing cables 
 
Changes in ground level with no warning 
 
HSE reports that most of these building site injuries could be avoided if managers and employers took due care to keep the workplace safe. If you have been injured in a slip, trip or fall accident on a building site, in the last three years, then you could well be eligible to make a building site accident at work claim with our specialist solicitors.

Can I make a construction injury claim for a crush injury? 

A crush injury happens when part of the body is subjected to a lot of force and pressure. Crush injuries can commonly be: 
 
 
Nerve damage 
 
 
Injuries such as this can occur in a building site accident involving a falling object, falling machinery, mishandled machinery, defective equipment, or staff not being adequately trained to use the machinery.  
 
These injuries often occur from negligence on the part of the employee, and therefore can often lead to successful construction injury claims. Get in touch with MG Legal’s construction injury solicitors for more information. 

Who is responsible for safety on a building site? 

With building sites being such big and busy places, it can often be difficult to pinpoint exactly who was to blame for your specific accident, and blame can often get shifted around. When you work with our accident at work solicitors, we will go above and beyond to establish exactly who was to blame for the accident causing your injury, and how exactly they acted negligently. 
 
Some examples of who MG Legal have successfully pursued building site accident claims against include: 
 
Building site managers- when employees are not provided with adequate training or PPE, it is often down to the building site manager, and a construction injury claim can be made against them. 
Building site designers- in terms of the overall operation of the building site, under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, the designer of the building site is responsible for eliminating and reducing risks and hazards on the site that may lead to injury of employees. 
 
All building sites operate differently, and this will determine who exactly acted negligently in allowing the accident to occur on the site. MG Legal’s accident at work solicitors are experts at analysing and interpreting complex documents establishing liability for building site staff, and will ensure that we know exactly who was to blame and why. 

How long do I have to make a construction injury claim? 

The Limitation Act 1980 states that, in most cases at least, an injured party has 3 years to make a claim for personal injury compensation. If you have any questions or queries, then please do not hesitate to contact one of MG Legal’s construction accident solicitors, here. 

Who is responsible for construction accident claims? 

As with all workplaces, everyone on a construction site has a degree of duty in order to ensure safe working practices, and keep everyone safe on the construction site. Depending on how you are injured on a construction site, and the type of construction site accident that you are involved in, this will determine who is to blame for your construction accident injuries. 
 
The duties that each role has on a construction site, as stated by the HSE, are as follows: 
 
Construction site designers- must identify and eliminate health hazards where possible, and reduce remaining risks 
 
Principal designers- must plan, manage, monitor and coordinate occupational health risks in the pre-construction phase 
 
Principal contractors- must plan, manage, monitor and coordinate occupational health risks in the construction phase 
 
Contractors- must manage any occupational health risks that their workers may be exposed to 
 
Construction workers- must take care of your own health and co-operate with others on health issues 
 
While it is true that all members of a construction site workplace have their own responsibility and duty of care, this does not mean that you are responsible for your own safety when working on a construction site. Regardless of your role, your employer and other people working for the site have a duty of care to minimise the risks on the construction site, and protect you from injury or illness. 
 
If you have suffered from injuries of any kind when working on a building site, and feel that your employer has acted negligently in protecting you from becoming injured, then our building site accident solicitors can help you to make a no win no fee construction accident claim on a no win no fee basis, for the compensation that you deserve. 
 
Get in touch with our no win no fee construction accident solicitors online here, and speak to a solicitor within one working hour on a free, no obligation basis. 

Can I make a construction injury claim for a lack of PPE? 

Almost all construction site jobs require PPE in the form of head equipment, such as a helmet. This is a legal requirement under the Personal Protective Equipment Regulations of 1992. If you work on a building site in a more specialised role, you may require other forms of PPE, such as eye protection. If your employer has failed to provide you with the necessary PPE to complete your job safely, and you have suffered injury as a result, you could be eligible to make a construction injury claim for inadequate PPE with our specialist building site accident solicitors, here. 

How can I prove a building site injury claim? 

When you work with MG Legal’s accident at work solicitors for your construction injury claim, your designated accident at work solicitor will be well versed in all the relevant health and safety and workplace legislation that can be used to build your accident at work claim, and will expertly apply the relevant legislation to your claim. 
 
Our team of accident at work solicitors carry out detailed analysis of all relevant construction regulations for our construction injury clients, in order to prove their construction injury claims. As part of your construction injury claim, our specialist accident at work solicitors will complete a detailed analysis of your construction accident alongside the following, and expert advice: 
 
The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015- The CDM aims to improve health and safety in the industry by helping employers to sensibly plan construction so the risks involved are managed from start to finish. The Regulations apply to all construction work including domestic projects, and our construction accident solicitors have regularly used the regulations to prove the negligence of employers in our client’s construction injury claims. 
 
The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 (HSW Act)- This act requires employers to ensure the health and safety of all employees and anyone who may be affected by their work, so far as is reasonably practicable. This includes taking steps to control slip and trip risks on the construction site, or any other accidents at work. Employees also have a duty not to put themselves or others in danger, and must use any safety equipment provided on the construction site. 
 
The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992- these regulations require floors in the workplace to be suitable, in good condition and free from obstructions. Employees and all people should be able to move around safely. 
 
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999- this group of legislations require employers to assess risks on site, and take action to address them. 
 
On top of carrying out a detailed analysis of all of the mentioned accident at work legislation as part of your construction injury claim, our specialist solicitors regularly work with construction experts in order to strengthen our client’s claims.

If you are unable to complete an accident report at the time of the incident, all is not lost as your employer must, within 10 days of the serious accident, report the matter to the Health and Safety Executive.
