The construction site and building are bustling environments with numerous individuals working in close proximity amid heavy machinery, tools, and large building materials. It is the employer’s duty to ensure the safety of their workers. Many accidents occur in the UK every year due to safety negligence, but these incidents can be prevented if the correct procedures are implemented and followed.

Accidents at construction sites can result in severe injuries to workers. The construction industry is notably hazardous by nature. Injuries sustained at construction sites are often grave, potentially resulting in permanent disability for individuals involved. This can render them incapable of continuing their work and providing for their families.

Compensation

Worker’s compensation is a defined method to assist an injured employee in claiming compensation for injuries sustained in a construction accident, covering lost wages and medical expenses. Each state has its own laws regarding worker’s compensation or insurance to aid workers in swiftly recovering from all related expenditures. In the UK, the National Accident Support Line (NASL) provides consistent services to individuals who have been injured or experienced significant loss while working. Under worker’s compensation, an injured employee is entitled to:

Medical Care

If an individual has experienced an accident at their workplace, they have the right to pursue all necessary treatments aimed at alleviating the effects of the injury and facilitating recovery, which can aid in compensating for lost wages. Once a doctor confirms the inability to work, the initial disability payment should be confirmed within a few weeks.

Disability for One Time

The individual suffering from the injury has the right to undergo necessary treatments to heal and claim compensation for all medical bills and prescriptions incurred.

Permanent Disability

If the injured individual has fully recovered but still experiences permanent disability, they may be eligible for a monetary award. Permanent disability indicates a complete loss of ability to work in the open labor market. Additional factors considered include the individual’s age, earnings, and occupation at the time of the injury.
