Construction Site Accidents

Accidents at work are commonplace on construction sites across the country, many of which are not the fault of the worker. The obvious threats of noise, machinery and vehicles mean that injuries are more likely in the construction environment.

If you work on a construction site, your employer has a legal obligation to ensure you are as safe as possible whilst carrying out your work. If they haven’t taken all the necessary steps to make sure you don't suffer injury then they are not complying with their duty of care and could well be liable.

It’s important that if you think you have a case against your employer following an incident at work, you start your claim straight away. Some injuries or wounds have time limits and questions may be raised over why it has taken you so long to get the ball rolling.

There are many ways in which you can injure yourself on a construction site. Falling from ladders or height, slipping and tripping, defective scaffolds and unsafe premises are just a few but the best way to determine if you are eligible to make a case is to give us a call.

No matter how trivial you think your injury is, we are here to give you a peace of mind – you are not at fault and do not deserve to sustain injuries while you work.

Mercury Legal will pursue your claim at no upfront cost to you and you will not have to pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful through no fault of your own. We operate with the highest levels of customer care and will represent your case professionally, managing all of the paperwork along the way.
