Construction site claims for compensation

excavation work deaths

Given the heavy objects and powerful machinery in use, construction sites can be dangerous places to work if risks are not managed effectively. For this reason, construction companies must follow strict health and safety regulations to eliminate as many dangers as possible. Where the failure to ensure site safety causes workers to be injured, the victims may be able to make construction site claims to recover compensation for their injuries.

Everyone deserves to be safe in their workplace, and working as a manual labourer does not mean you should accept risks to your physical safety. In the worst cases, construction site injuries can cause life-altering complications, so it is important to ensure that any negligence that put the injured person at risk is accounted for.

As specialist injury lawyers, we have successfully represented victims for a number of construction site cases like this, including a case we recently reported on here which we won for a victim of a defective scaffold accident. If you are concerned about the circumstances in which your construction site injury arose, you can contact us for free, no-obligation advice on your potential compensation claim.

Construction worker recovers almost £2,000.00 in compensation after fall from ladder

ladder injury at work claims

Working in construction or manual labour has its obvious risks which is why it’s important to ensure every worker is properly trained to handle equipment and materials safely without putting themselves – or others – at risk.

Risk assessments should be carried out to check if working at a certain height requires a barrier or a harness to stop people from accidentally falling off. Where ladders are needed, staff must be trained and the ladders must be appropriate for the task and safe to use. So, when we were contacted for help after a worker suffered injury due to a fall from a ladder at work, we were only too happy to help

The Injury Lawyers helps tenant recover compensation for exposure to gas leak

gas leak compensation claim

When the claimant in this case moved into a rented property, a gas-safety certificate was provided confirming the house was safe to live in. However, it didn’t take long for the claimant to start experiencing symptoms associated with gas exposure that inevitably required medical treatment.

Upon investigating the premises, an engineer deemed the house unsafe to live in after confirming there was gas leaking in the property.

Our client wins £1,800 compensation for minor propane gas burn injury to hand and arm

hand injury claims

Our client unfortunately suffered an injury when filling up a vehicular LPG tank with propane gas. A build-up of pressure caused the gas to shoot out, resulting in (thankfully) minor burns to the hand and lower arm.

The gas immersed part of the hand, covering it with a thin layer of ice and therefore causing freeze burns. They were then rushed to A&E for treatment for their injuries.

Having assessed the claim and whether there was a case to answer for, we decided to accept and represent our client on a No Win, No Fee basis, allowing them a risk-free approach on their fight for justice for their injuries suffered.

Worker receives £7,000 in compensation for minor back injury

spinal injury claims

Our expert team here at The Injury Lawyers have once again helped another accident victim recover compensation for an injury sustained at work.

Our client was instructed to take a 19kg box from one property to another. Despite their best efforts at trying to load the box in to a car, a lower-back disc injury was sustained resulting in immediate pain and a requirement for treatment.

Having assessed the circumstances, our team were confident there was a case to answer for here.

Engineer receives just under £6,000 for broken foot injury compensation claim

accident report

The claimant in this case was employed as an engineer by a building company. The claimant was instructed to take an industrial steel tube and cut it to size. It was a task the claimant hadn’t done before and they received no clear instructions on how the task should be completed in a safe manner.

The steel tube were stored incorrectly on a storage rack that suddenly gave way and fell on the claimant, hitting his foot. Not only were the tubes stacked incorrectly but the storage rack was not fit for the purpose of storing metal tubes as there were no barriers from preventing the tubes from falling out.

Steel toe-capped leather safety boots could not avoid an injury in this entirely preventable accident.

The Injury Lawyers help Claimant recover £7,500 from a hotel for a broken wrist

hand injury claims

Whilst on holiday, our client lost their footing on a hotel driveway defect which caused them to fall and suffer a broken wrist.

There’s never a good time for it, but to suffer an injury like that while on holiday when you’re supposed to be relaxing is devastating!

Our client also suffered bruising to the leg. Uneven ground and flooring may not seem like much to some, but they can cause serious harm. In addition to broken bones, anyone who trips on them could end up hitting their heads and could suffer a brain injury.

The Injury Lawyers helps claimant recover over £5,000.00 for broken wrist injury compensation

workplace injury claims

Another case settled by our expert injury claims team.

In this case, our client was injured by a large gate that shut on their arm. The gate was defective, meaning our client was exposed to a clearly foreseeable risk of injury that sadly materialised when they were injured.

As we often say, it could have been worse. A large gate closing on someone’s hand could have caused irreversible nerve damage from a crushing injury, or could have permanently debilitated the hand.

The Injury Lawyers help injured worker recover £12,000 in compensation for neck injury

workplace accidents

Our client was unfortunately struck by a falling object in the workplace that had become loose due to heat from welding. He was struck hard by the object that weighed around 200kg, suffering injuries to the neck and the back, which also (as is common) radiated down in to the shoulder and arm.

This was an injury that could have been far more serious. It could have paralysed the claimant for life, and medical professionals noted that our client was really lucky to be alive.

For the pain, suffering and loss our client endured, we fought for an award of compensation in sum of £12,000.

The Injury Lawyers settle University of Derby blood test and vaccination HIV scare cases

needle blood tests

In April 2014, 606 former and current students at the University of Derby were ‘at risk’ of HIV after a health worker negligently reused syringe barrels when taking blood tests and conducting vaccinations.

An investigation was opened and led by NHS England after the nurse put hundreds of students at risk of HIV and other serious infections like hepatitis. Those 606 students were contacted for blood testing who received either blood tests and/or vaccinations between September 2005 and October 2013.
