Types of construction site claims we can help you with
The solicitors at Nigel Askew have over 20 years of experience in representing clients seriously injured on construction sites and during this time have won dozens of cases on their behalf and won millions of pounds in compensation for them.
Some of the most common injuries associated with construction sites include:
- Serious injuries caused by falling from scaffolding, raised platforms, ladders, roofs and buildings
- Back injuries caused from manual handling, lifting, pulling and pushing injuries
- Crushing and de-gloving injuries to hands, fingers and arms when working with machinery
- Injuries caused by vehicles on site including diggers, lorries and trucks
- Serious injuries caused by debris falling from height
Construction sites are extremely dangerous work settings and a wide range of accidents can take place on them if sites are not well organised. If the accident that caused your injury is not listed above do not worry, you still may be able to make a successful claim for compensation.
Call us on 01507 609027 to get your claim started today.
What are construction claims worth?
The amount of compensation you may expect to receive for your injury on a construction site depends on a number of factors, including the severity of your injuries, whether you have been unable to work and if you require any long term care and rehabilitation.
Depending on the severity of your injuries and your current and future financial losses, construction site injury claims can be valued anywhere from £25,000 to several hundred thousand pounds and in cases where someone has suffered life changing injuries, they can be valued in the millions.
All successful claims may include compensation for the following:
- Compensation for your injuries and pain and suffering
- Compensation for any lost earnings, past, present and future as a result of the accident
- Compensation for any adaptations that may be required to your home
- The cost associated with healthcare and rehabilitation as a result of your injuries
For more information about how much your claim may be worth, read our personal injury claims calculator page or call us now to discuss a new claim on 01507 609027.
So, how does a claim work?
All new claims start with an initial consultation with one of our solicitors to discuss the circumstances that led to your accident and the injuries you have sustained. We will ask you a series of questions to help us build a picture of your potential claim.
If we believe your potential claim has good prospects of success then we will offer to represent you on a No Win No Fee basis.
Does it cost money to start a claim?
No, we do not charge our clients any upfront fees to get a construction related claim up and running.
We use Conditional Fee Agreements to fund all of our personal injury claims. These agreements are also commonly referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee agreement”.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all of 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.
Our other fees are mostly paid by the insurers of the negligent party, so the insurance provider of your employers business insurance and not your employer personally.
