Construction sites are hazardous places. If you have been injured while working on a building site, you should remember that you have the same rights as any employee to a safe workplace. Your employer has a duty to make sure that the site complies with all the relevant legal rules, including strict health and safety legislation. Your employer also has a legal responsibility to have accident insurance in place so that any compensation you receive will be paid by an insurer and not by your employer.
Claiming Compensation Following Accidents On Building Sites
Unfortunately, many companies do not strictly follow regulations — corners are cut and poor maintenance can lead to faulty equipment injuries. As a result, construction workers are more likely to be injured in an accident than people in any other type of employment.
Bakers Solicitors believes that all accident victims should have access to justice. We are committed to securing the compensation injured construction workers deserve. In particular we are interested in handling those rejected cases that other solicitors view as weak or in some way too risky to pursue.
