Construction Site Claims

Thousands of construction workers suffer from work-related fatality every year, while countless others undergo considerable physical injuries. Even though these construction workers are usually skilled labourers trained in necessary safety condition, a large number of Construction & Building Site Accidents take place every year. Just some of the reasons for these accidents may include faulty materials, malfunctioning machinery, inferior tools, unprotected safety harnesses, holes in flooring and negligence of the employers. Especially if the construction accidents are occurred due to the negligence of the company, then the injured person or the relatives of the dead person have the right to file their construction site claims. Although it cannot bring back the dead person or compensate for the pain that the injured person has suffered, money in hand in such a critical situation can be of great help.

When accidents occur at the construction sites, many of the loyal and hard-working labourers feel frustrated, betrayed and unprotected. Many of the injured people are so badly injured that they cannot work for the rest of their life. As their injuries do not allow them to go back to work and earn some money, most of them tend to return to work even before the injuries are completely healed up. This further endangers their health conditions and physical safety. It has to be remembered that Construction & Building Site Accidents are not part of the job, but they should be considered as threats to the workers’ safety and to the entire project. The injured persons should write down the events that caused to the accident and important details like location of accident, equipments or materials that the person was using, any possible eye-witnesses, what safety measures the person took immediately after the accident. A specialised lawyer will guide the person through all the procedures and requirements of the legal proceeding. More than a few people may be considered faulty for such accidents, therefore a complete account of all the circumstances during the accident and a thorough investigation is required to identify the ones whjo are responsible for the accident and liable to compensate for the damages of the injured person.

On-site accidents are quite preventable, and that is why construction site claims are so important. If the injured person wins the claim, he or she will not only receive a compensation for paying off his or her rising medical bills, but will also receive an emotional closure.

Mrs K was knocked over by a car that mounted the pavement, fracturing her tibia. Following extensive medical investigations organised by Cooks, it transpired that the accident brought forward the need for a knee replacement operation in the next 5-10 years. Cooks settled Mrs K’s claim for £28,750.00 she said:
"I am very pleased with the service I have received and would recommend Cookss to my friends. My claim was handled in a very professional manner and I was kept informed of it’s progress. Everyone I met or spoke to was helpful and considerate and I felt confident in their abilities. This was important to me at the time of my accident and later."
