Accidents are common in the construction sector
The construction sector is one of the largest in the UK, with official government estimates confirming that approximately 3.1 million people, or 9% of the entire UK workforce, are employed in the construction sector.
The construction sector is also one of the most dangerous as these millions of people are constantly at risk of sustaining serious injury due to working with heavy plant, machinery and vehicles, especially if they are not given correct training, PPE and or benefiting from regular site risk assessments.
According to recent data published by the HSE 441,000 workers sustained a non-fatal injury according to self-reports from the Labour Force Survey in 2020/21. Of those people who sustained an injury at work, 102,000 were required to stay off work for over 7 days to recover from their injuries.

How much does it cost to start my claim?
We do not charge our clients any fees to get a new claim up and running.
We use “Conditional Fee Agreements” to fund all of our claims. These agreements are also commonly referred to as “No Win No Fee Agreements” or “CFA’s”.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time. For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a % of the client’s compensation award at the end of a successful claim.
