There are certain workplace regulations which employers must comply with to ensure that the construction or building site is safe for the employees and the general public who may come into contact with the site. Our specialist team of accident at work lawyers assist many building and construction workers in bringing injury compensation claims.
Falling or moving objects
The most common scenario of being injured on a construction or building site is by a moving or falling object, where they are dropped or dislodged by individuals working at height, or where they have been inappropriately stored.
There are occasions when objects will fall due to severe weather conditions such as gale force winds or hurricane storms. Any damage caused may have resulted as “An Act of God” and not negligence. If you are injured by a falling tree or branch then you may have a claim against the land owner or occupier.
