Accidents and injuries Road Workers can claim for

 

Road workers face a catalogue of potential dangers and injuries as part of their job. Using heavy machinery and working with HGVs – or working in all-weather conditions and the physical toll of the job are daily challenges for road workers.

 

Road traffic accidents (RTAs) are also a potential hazard if warnings signs are not put in place or road users like motorists are careless. Road traffic accidents are now one of the main causes for people in the UK making personal injury claims.

 

Road workers injured at work as a result of their employer not properly assessing risks – or because of faulty equipment or road traffic accidents caused by another road user – can claim for injuries such as:

 

  • Amputation
  • Brain injury
  • Concussion
  • Crush injuries
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Deafness/hearing impairment (industrial deafness)
  • Exposure to hazardous chemicals and fumes (de-icing chemicals, gas, tar)
  • Fractures
  • Head injury
  • Knee and joint injuries
  • Muscle damage
  • Neck and shoulder injury
  • Repetitive strain injury (RSI)
  • Spinal and back injuries
  • Whiplash injuries.

 

Accidents road workers can claim for include:

 

  • Falls from height (cranes, bridge repairs)
  • Faulty goods( accidents (failures safety equipment or machine tools)
  • Machinery accidents( (drills, diggers)
  • Road traffic accidents.

 

How long do I have to make a Road Worker Personal Injury Claim?

 

Claims for accidents and injury at work compensation fall under the area of law known as personal injury.

 

Personal injury claimants usually have three years from the date of the injury to make a claim for accident and injury at work compensation.

 

Claims can sometimes be made outside the three-year limitation period, however.

 

Because of the limitation period for personal injury claims, it is important to seek legal advice from Duncan Lewis personal injury solicitors as soon as possible if you are a road worker and have been injured in a work accident.

 

Family members can call Duncan Lewis for advice on making a claim if a loved one working as a road worker has been injured and is recovering in hospital.

 

Road Worker Personal Injury Claims – how much compensation will I get?

 

Compensation for Road Worker Personal Injury Claims includes:

 

  • General Damages for pain, suffering and loss of amenity
    The exact amount will be assessed according to the extent of injury, estimated recovery time and rehabilitation needed – and whether further medical treatment or even lifelong care is needed.
  • Special Damages to cover medical fees and out-of-pocket expenses
    Expenses might include physiotherapy, loss of earnings, travel expenses to hospital or damage to personal items. In more serious cases, ongoing care, loss of future salary and pension or adaptations to your home would be included.

 

Who pays the compensation for road worker personal injury claims?

 

Employers have a legal duty to ensure safe working practices – and should carry out regular health and safety checks to make sure work premises or sites are properly managed and maintained, equipment is fit for purpose – and staff are properly trained and supervised.

 

Employees must also follow good working practices and report any lapses in health and safety to employers or line managers.

 

However, it is your employer’s insurer who will settle any claim for accident or injury as a road worker – or the insurer of whoever is liable for the injury, such as a motorist.

 

Will I have to go to court to claim compensation?

 

Your Duncan Lewis personal injury solicitor will keep you fully informed at all stages of the case.  

Road worker personal injury claims are mainly settled out-of-court – Duncan Lewis personal injury lawyers negotiate hard to get the best settlement for you.

 

But if a court hearing is necessary, Duncan Lewis instructs leading barristers who specialise in personal injury cases and work injury and/or road traffic accidents, to make sure you have the best legal representation possible.
