Building Site Accident Claims & Construction Site Accidents & Construction Worker Injury Claims

Have you suffered injury because of an accident on a building site or construction site that was not your fault?  Was it even partly your fault?  Was a co-worker to blame?  Even if the ‘site’ was a residential property, then you are rightly entitled to claim compensation.  We can help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

At Grieves Solicitors we understand that many tradespeople are self-employed which can mean that you have an added financial pressure to contend with at a time when you should be focusing on your recovery.

Obviously, where builders, construction workers or any tradespeople who regularly work on-site sustain a serious, or worse-still, life-changing injury, then in many cases it may not be possible to return to their chosen profession. All these factors must be considered carefully in any Work Accident Claim.  That is why you need to consult our Specialist Personal Injury Solicitors.

Our Accident At Work Solicitors at Grieves Solicitors understand first-hand the stresses that can be placed on individuals and families following any kind of workplace injury.  Therefore, if you have suffered a serious injury that was not your fault or even partly your fault while working on a construction or building site, the experienced team of personal injury solicitors here at Grieves Solicitors can help you get the compensation you deserve.

At Grieves Solicitors, we pride ourselves on being experts in the field of personal injury claims.

What can I claim for in a Building and Construction Site Accident Claim?

Financial compensation awarded as a result of a construction site injury is intended to help victims cover the cost of:

  • Loss of earnings
  • Medical fees
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Physical and mental injuries - any physical or physiological damages caused by the accident which can include: pain, mental distress and general loss of enjoyment.

How much compensation will I get?

The exact amount of compensation you will receive for your Building Site Accident Claim will be based on a number of factors. And of course, every case is individual in its own way.

That being said, all injury claims are based on the evaluation of two elements to each claim:

  • General Damages - to compensate for the loss of amenity, pain & suffering
  • Special Damages - to compensate for financial losses or future costs incurred as a direct result of the injury

Our Accident at work Compensation Calculator will provide provisional guideline figures on how much compensation you may receive for the 'general damages' element of the final compensation award.
