Construction Accident Compensation Lawyers UK
Personal injury claims resulting from health and safety breaches in the construction industry require expert advice from experienced personal injury lawyers. Lloyd Donnelly have extensive experience of handling these claims.
Claims for construction accidents can involve more than one party. For instance, you may be working for a sub-contractor on a site which is controlled by a larger company. In such a case, it is essential to identify who is responsible for the health and safety and which insurer will deal with the accident claim.
There are specific regulations which cover construction including the Work at Height Regulations and the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2007. These regulations impose duties on participants in the construction project. These include clients, designers and contractors. The objective of the law in this area is to care for the health and safety of those in the construction industry. Failure to comply with the requirements of the regulations can result in a criminal prosecution as well as a personal injury claim.
