What Are the Most Common Causes of Construction Site Injuries?
Despite stringent health and safety legislation, accidents and injuries are still common on all kinds of construction sites. Even relatively minor building work is dangerous and can cause serious injuries which can leave you with life-altering conditions. In most cases, injuries on a building site are caused by a failure to adhere to the correct health and safety rulings. Some of the most common causes of construction site injuries include a lack of health and safety equipment, improperly maintained equipment, a lack of training or workplace negligence. It is also possible for trench collapses, falling from heights and collapsed scaffolding to lead to serious construction injuries.
What Are the Most Common Construction Site Injuries?
Construction site injuries are often extremely serious. In some cases, they can be as minor as a few bad bruises or minor abrasions. However, they can also involve life-altering or life-threatening injuries, including head injuries, injuries requiring amputations or even spinal injuries resulting in paraplegia or quadriplegia. These common construction injuries can often cause long-term or life-altering injuries. Many injuries sustained on a building site will prevent the injured party from working as a builder or construction worker in the future, leaving them without a trade or livelihood. As such, if you (or a loved one) has suffered any kind of construction site injury that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to claim.

Larger construction sites often rely on heavy vehicles to transport materials, equipment and aggregates.

If the operator of a vehicle isn’t fully trained, or is negligent in their operation, they can cause serious injuries to other personnel on the construction site. If you’ve been hit by a vehicle or sustained any other injury due to the vehicle’s operator, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
