Construction Accidents

“Construction sites are particularly dangerous and injuries sustained in this environment can often be quite serious. If you have been involved in a construction accident, contact Lance Mason Solicitors today for free expert advice.”

How They Happen

Construction accidents come in many different forms, including:

  • Falls from scaffolding, roofs or ladders
  • Being struck by falling objects on site
  • Being electrocuted by faulty or defective machinery

A construction site can be a dangerous place to work. It is your employer’s responsibility to ensure that health and safety standards on construction sites are maintained. If you sustain an injury as a result of your employer failing to adhere to these standards, you may be entitled to compensation.

What Should I Do Following A Construction Accident?

  • See your doctor as soon as possible; without seeing your doctor straight away, it becomes difficult to diagnose any injuries sustained in the actual accident.
  • Write down the contact details of any witnesses
  • Make a note of the time and date of the accident
  • Ensure you report the accident
  • If possible, log your accident in the accident book
