Although it is considered the most safety conscious environment to work in, the construction industry also claims more than a third of all work-related fatalities. Construction accidents still occur regardless of the stringent protection regulations in place, and much of this is due to the intensive manual labour and proximity to machinery.
Commonplace construction accidents include injuries when lifting, falls from scaffolding and roofs and power tool incidents. Often these accidents might have been avoided if not for the wear and tear of equipment and proper following of safety precautions and rules. While part of the responsibility can lie with the workers, it is the duty of the employer to implement the relevant safety features involved. Improper training, negligent attitudes and defective equipment are usually to blame for construction accidents, and knowing your rights is important when working in such a potentially harmful industry.
If you have been involved in a construction accident, you may be entitled to compensation as a result. It can be difficult to differentiate between what is your fault and what should have been done to keep you safe, so effective and correct legal advice is essential through specialist constructive accident solicitors
Being injured at work is not something which should happen, and if it does you can be left out of earnings and behind on domestic and social payments. Any construction accident caused by the negligence of employers can be rewarded with monetary gain, and while this may not help with physical pain it can ease financial difficulties.
