What injuries can you claim compensation for on a building site? 

Falls from Heights 

Falling from ladders, scaffolding, or elevated platforms is a leading cause of injuries on building sites. One Cheshire-based company found themselves fined after their worker, who was installing windows, doors, and frames at a local property, fell from the Scaffold tower, suffering injuries to his back and ribs. Injuries can occur as both workers and members of the public, which one unlucky London resident unfortunately discovered, after scaffolding fell onto her during a spell of bad weather

Struck by Objects 

Workers can be injured when struck by falling tools, materials, or machinery. Such falls can be caused by lack of incorrect tool storage, clumsy colleagues, or even in one-off incidents. However the injury occurs, if your employer should have adhered to relevant Health and Safety statute, such as the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 then you could be due compensation. 


Electrical hazards can result in severe injuries or fatalities. One such gentleman who suffered the loss of both his hands and legs when he was electrocuted working on a building site in 2016. 

Machinery Accidents 

Mishaps involving heavy machinery, such as cranes or forklifts, can cause catastrophic injuries. Our No Win No Fee Solicitors have represented many clients who have been injured at work, with one case where our client was not provided with the correct footwear or assistance to move a locker weighing in excess of a tonne, which resulted in his finger being near amputated when the locker slammed shut against it. His claim for damages was successful. 

Slip and Falls 

Slippery surfaces, uneven terrain, and inadequate safety measures can lead to slip and fall accidents.  

Statistics on Workplace Injuries 

According to recent statistics, construction sites consistently account for a significant portion of workplace injuries and fatalities. 
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in the UK regularly releases data on workplace injuries and deaths, highlighting the ongoing challenges in construction safety.

How to Make a Claim for Compensation with our No Win No Fee Solicitors 

Seek Medical Attention: 

If injured on a building site, it's crucial to seek immediate medical attention for your injuries. Not only will this ensure there is a record of the injuries sustained and the treatment given, but it will also prevent any further damage or injuries occurring, and seeking medical assistance should be your first thought. 

Report the Incident: 

Report the accident to your employer and ensure it is documented in the workplace incident log. Only do this when it is safe to do so, and do not return to your place of work if unsafe, or if you are not able to. 

Gather Evidence: 

Collect evidence, such as photographs of the accident scene and your injuries, and obtain witness statements if possible. 

Consult a Solicitor: 

Contact a local No Win No Fee solicitor who specialises in workplace injury claims, such as building site injury claims. For example, our No Win No Fee Solicitors at MG Legal will assess your case, offer legal advice, and guide you through the process. 

Begin the Claims Process: 

Your No Win No Fee solicitor will initiate the compensation claim process, including negotiations with your employer or their insurance provider. 

Going to Court: 

If an agreement cannot be reached, your No Win No Fee solicitor may advise pursuing a legal claim through the courts. Our team can deal with the process from start to finish, ensuring you receive the maximum compensation for your injuries. Whilst we appreciate it may not put the situation right, the compensation will help to get you back on your feet whilst you recover.  
You will be glad to know that our no win no fee solicitors have a success rate in excess of 99% for the accident at work claims we accept on a no win no fee basis- and our clients are very rarely asked to attend court, with a successful conclusion coming well before this is required.
