Construction Site Claims

Construction sites are, by their very nature, potentially dangerous places to work. Debris and rubble are constantly being generated; large machinery is constantly in use and often in motion; and more often than not, more than one construction or building company will be operating in the same site, often in the same area.

If you have ever worked on a construction site, you will be aware that many organisations operate as sub-contractors who in turn sub-contract various specialists for certain types of skilled building work.

As a worker on a construction site you may have been engaged by an agency to work for a building company that was in turn sub-contracted by another company to carry out specific work on site.

It is often the case that many people in the building trade are not completely sure who their actual employer is, which organisation is responsible for overall site safety and who it is they need to report an accident too.

Why go to Birchall Blackburn Law?

If you are injured in an accident on a building site you need a team of experts who know their way around the law, know your rights and your employer’s obligations and have the skills to unravel the sometimes very complex contractual relationships that exist on construction sites.

At Birchall Blackburn Law we have an in-depth working knowledge of the statutory regulations that exist to protect you.
Again, because of the nature of the work that is done on a construction site, if an accident happens, it’s very often serious.

If you or a relative have been involved in an accident on a construction site or have suffered a personal injury whilst working in the building trade you may have to deal with horrific, life changing injuries.

You need a legal team around you who have experience in dealing with serious injuries where urgent rehabilitation, possible interim payments to pay for the bills whilst you are out of work and long term medical treatment and care plans are required. At Birchall Blackburn Law, our Serious and Catastrophic injury team has that experience.

In addition we have an open, approachable and friendly attitude towards all of our clients. We keep you regularly updated on your case and explain things to you in plain English so the issues in your case are easy to understand.
