From start to finish, our dedicated team of solicitors is ready to guide you through the construction accident claims process. We have been helping people involved in work accident claims for over 50 years. If you’ve been involved in a construction or building site accident in Northern Ireland, our injury solicitors are ready to help.

Building site accident claims solicitors

Building site accidents are increasingly common across Northern Ireland. The construction work environment is filled with many hazards that can lead to a range of different injuries. Even a minor injury has the potential of causing serious problems lasting many months.

Many injuries are as a result of your employer failing to keep you safe. They should take appropriated steps to ensure that health and safety regulations are followed. Your employer may be required to provide you with adequate protective equipment, give you adequate training, or ensure that you are properly supervised. If you’ve been injured, our construction accident claims solicitors will investigate if duty of care was not met and will guide you through the entire construction injury claims process.

Common Construction Site Injuries

Construction site injuries vary in type and severity. In the past 50 years of legal practice, our solicitors helped construction accident victims who have suffered from the following: 

  • Head injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Burns
  • Amputations 

This is by no means an exhaustive list. If you suffered any injury on a building site, contact our solicitors to see how we can help.

Who can claim for a construction accident injury?

If you sustained an injury at a construction site that wasn’t your fault, you usually need to bring your claim 3 years from the date of the accident. Additionally, it may be possible to bring a building site accident claim if you were partially at fault. 

Some people find it difficult to claim for an accident at a construction or building site. We are here to help guide you through the process. If you are unsure whether you are eligible, our solicitors will examine your case and determine whether you can make a construction accident claim.

How much construction injury compensation could you receive?

We understand that every construction injury is different and can affect the body in different ways. Consequently, compensation associated with injuries may differ greatly as well. Our website features a helpful claim calculator that can provide you with some understanding of how much construction injury compensation is awarded for certain injuries.
