There are many construction accidents happening every year that require the employee to seek medical attention.

  2. 2. Construction accidents are one of the most common work related personal injuries. They are especially problematic because they tend to result in more severe injury. There are many construction accidents happening every year that require the employee to seek medical attention. This may lead to financial instability because the worker may miss wages of several days or even several months.
  3. 3. Common Construction Accidents
  4. 4. Slip and fall accidents The worker may slip or trip over discarded equipment or debris and suffer injury. Trips and slips are a common hazard on a building site, and if the employer has failed to take the necessary steps you will be able to make a claim for compensation.
  5. 5. Falling debris The debris falling from a height lands on the workers on lower levels. Depending on the item that is dropped and the height it is falling these accidents can cause severe injuries.
  6. 6. Falling from height In a construction site many workers are working at several floors high. If the fall is due to poorly constructed support or a defective roof you may be able to make a claim for compensation. This comes under unsafe worker equipment.
  7. 7. Machinery If you are using power tools on a construction site these can lead to injury either through defects in the machinery, inadequate training or failure to provide the correct safety equipment.
  8. 8. Working with Ladders When someone is carrying equipment which is too heavy on a ladder, they may fall from the ladder. Also serious injuries occur when someone had failed to secure a ladder to the next level.
  9. 9. A construction site is a dangerous place to work, but your employer must take safety precautions, to keep you safe. If they fail to do their duty to protect you and you suffer injury, you can make a claim for compensation for your pain and suffering, loss of earnings and any other expenses.
