If a construction worker suffers a workplace accident that is not their fault, they can file a claim for compensation known as a construction site accident claim.
As with any personal injury claim, a worker must prove that their construction site injury occurred because of another party’s negligence.
In this instance, that negligence needs to be attributed to a building site employer who is responsible for the safety of the workers under their management.
To prove negligence and achieve success in your building site accident claim, you must show that your employer failed to meet the duty of care they owed you and, in doing so, directly caused or impacted your accident or injury.
All kinds of accidents can occur on building sites, but we do see some claims arise more frequently than others.
