Construction Site Accident Compensation Claims

Our solicitors are experienced in construction site accidents.


Anyone who has worked on one will know that construction sites can be very chaotic and potentially dangerous places.
Around 7% of the UK workforce works in construction, and around 3.6% of construction workers have suffered from work-related ill-health. Every day, construction workers perform tasks that put them at risk of injury. Dangerous machinery is used regularly, heavy lifting can cause muscular injuries and working on scaffolding means a risk of falling.
With so much potential for accidents, it’s no wonder rates of work-related ill health are higher in the construction industry than other sectors.

Find out how much compensation you can claim. Contact us online or call 01772 203 303 for non obligation friendly advice.


Many types of accidents and injuries can occur on a construction or building site, including:

  • Injury from hazardous material
  • Accidents caused by site vehicles
  • Accidents caused by demolitions
  • Fires and explosions
  • Welding accidents
  • Falls from a height
  • Injury from falling objects
  • Scaffolding and crane accidents
  • Faulty machinery

If you have been injured in a construction site accident, you could be entitled to compensation.


Building and construction work is physically demanding, and you need to be healthy to do your job. If you’ve been injured whilst working on a construction site, it’s likely you will need time off work while you recover. If the injury is very serious or long-lasting, you might not be able to return to work at all.
In these circumstances, receiving compensation for your injury can help take away financial worries and let you concentrate on getting better. Compensation can cover your current or future lost earnings, or it can be used to pay for on-going treatment like physiotherapy.
If you’ve suffered an injury on a construction site in the last three years that wasn’t your fault, Porter Wood Law Solicitor can help you make a claim and get you the compensation you deserve.

Find out how much compensation you can claim. Contact us online or call 01772 203 303 for non obligation friendly advice.


Building and construction employers have specialist insurance for incidents just like this. Any compensation you receive will be covered by their insurance – you won’t be claiming from an individual.


A personal injury solicitor will have a confidential chat with you about your accident. They’ll advise you on the next steps in making your claim, and can even give you an estimate for how much compensation you might receive. This initial consultation is totally free, and you are under no obligation to proceed even after talking to our team.
If you do choose to go ahead with a claim, we’ll take care of it for you, getting you the compensation you deserve for your injury and helping you get back on your feet.

Thanks to all the team at Porterwood, and Craig the Solicitor whom dealt and won my claim . My claim was a fall from height to which I sustained a serious injury back in 2018 and led to quite a long recovery. My case was dealt with very professionally and thoroughly and Craig managed to get me interim payments along the way and also payments for private physiotherapy from the Defendants insurance which was of great help at the time . This is a great firm to use and I would definitely recommend them , they will give you realistic advice and have the use of numerous professionals in their field to help build your case . Thanks again, Sam .

Od momentu zgłoszenia sprawy do momentu wypłaty pieniędzy minęły zaledwie cztery miesiące. Sam proces zgłoszenia, prowadzenia sprawy oraz formalności na najwyższym poziomie. W razie pytań Pan Norbert był praktycznie cały czas dostępny pod telefonem i potrafił rozwiać każda wątpliwość. Polecam każdemu, który uległ wypadkowi i liczy na szybkie oraz bezproblemowe załatwienie sprawy.
