Work Accidents on Construction Sites
Had An Accident on a Construction Site?
At McGee O’Kane Solicitors we are expert Accident Solicitors and we can help you.
Construction sites are inherently dangerous places, and anyone working on a construction site faces a number of risks on a daily basis.
Accidents can cause severe injuries that are very painful and also effect your ability to drive, sleep, exercise and work – as well as the anxiety and stress of being involved in an accident. This can have a serious impact on your life.

If you are injured while working on a construction site, it is not something you must accept. The law states that your health and safety should be protected while you are at work – just like any other employee, worker or contractor in Northern Ireland.
Because construction site accidents often result in severe injuries, the compensation awarded in such cases can be high. This is particularly true if the injured person cannot return to work because of their injuries, meaning there will be a large loss of earnings claim.

Construction Site Accidents
Due to the nature of a construction site, there are various ways in which a construction site worker might suffer an accident and injury. Common examples of Work Accidents on Construction Sites include –
- Falling from a height
- Head injuries from falling objects
- Accidents involving machinery
- Injuries arising from a lack of protective equipment or training
- Injuries arising from poorly maintained machinery or equipment
- Slips and trips
- Exposure to toxic substances
- Poor working practice
This is by no means a comprehensive list and there are various other ways in which someone working on a construction site might come to harm.
Construction Site Claims
Construction site accidents can be devastating for all concerned, and when an incident arises, it is natural to wonder whether anything could have been done to prevent it from happening and the answer is often yes.
This is because all employees and contractors working on a construction site (as well as any visitors) should be kept safe from harm, so far as is reasonably practicable.
In practical terms, this means that steps must be taken to protect your health and safety while you are on site. This might include providing the correct training and protective equipment, implementing the correct health and safety regulations, supervising workers and servicing machinery, to name but a few.
