Building and Construction Accidents

Accidents on Construction sites are very common and often serious - in fact more more fatal accidents occur in construction than any other industry. Types of accident are numerous but the more common are :-

  1. Falls from height
  2. Falling objects
  3. Accidents involving fork lift trucks, cranes, dumpers and other mobile plant
  4. Scaffolding accidents
  5. Lifting accidents
  6. Fires and explosions

Employers have an obligation both at Common Law and under various statutes to protect employees from injury by providing, amongst other things, safe plant and equipment, safe systems of work, protective equipment, and competent workers. If a breach of their duty of care or failure to comply with regulations results in an accident causing personal injury to employees or members of the public then the employer/operator of the site may be legally liable to pay compensation.

Trip on highway
Mrs J tripped on a pothole whilst crossing a service road running parallel to a main road, fracturing her shoulder, wrist and ankle. The Council initially denied full liability for her accident alleging Mrs J was partly to blame for not avoiding the pothole. Cooks arranged a Conference with a barrister and on his advice rejected this. After intense negotiations Mrs J was awarded £17,000.00 she said:
"I had help from the start regarding my claim and found the advice very reassuring. I have never had to make a claim before so was apprehensive but you did a lot to alleviate my worries. Thanks again for all your help and support."
Mrs J from London
