Unfortunately, accidents on construction sites and job sites are common. If you have been injured on a job site, you may be eligible to lodge a workers compensation claim. Strict time limits apply and the sooner you act, the better.

Additionally, you may be able to pursue a claim against your employer if your injury was the result of negligence. If your injury was caused by a contractor on site, you also may have a public liability claim against that contractor.

Lionheart Lawyers are experts at dealing with construction site injury and accident claims for builders, contractors and construction workers. We will lodge your claim at no cost to you, so you will not have to worry about being out of pocket.

Construction Site Injuries & Accident Claims

Construction site accidents can be extremely serious and can sometimes have long-term consequences on your life, health and livelihood.

Examples of accidents on construction sites include:

  • Trips and falls, including falls from height;
  • Struck or crushed by machinery or equipment;
  • Heavy lifting injuries;
  • Crane or forklift accidents;
  • Collapsed scaffolding;
  • Being hit by falling objects;
  • Amputation or injury by power tools;
  • Electrocution or electric shock;
  • Burns from fire or chemical exposure;
  • Psychological injury or trauma.

If you have suffered any kind of injury because of a construction site accident, it is important to report your injury to your employer immediately.

Your next step should be to contact Lionheart Lawyers for a free consultation. We have more than 50 years of combined experience in workers compensation cases and will work to obtain the compensation you are entitled to.

Legal Advice for Injuries Sustained on a Worksite

In the event of a worksite injury, the NSW Workers Compensation Scheme exists to cover you for loss of income and medical expenses. Depending on the circumstances of your accident and the extent of your injuries, you may also be entitled to a lump-sum payment.

Lionheart Lawyers will assess your case with great care and attention and identify all claims you may be eligible to make. For instance, it is a site manager’s responsibility to ensure that your construction site is safe and free from hazards. If your accident occurred due to negligence on the part of your employer or another contractor, you may additionally be able to pursue a public liability claim.

Making Workers Compensation Claim for Injuries on a Construction Site

Strict time limits apply for workers compensation claims, so it is crucial that you contact us as quickly as possible. The sooner we begin managing your construction site injury case, the better chance you have of getting your claim approved.

If you are unsure whether your time limit has lapsed, want to dispute a denied claim, or simply want to know what to do next, our experienced workers compensation lawyers will be able to advise you with a free initial consultation.

Our lawyers are approved by the Independent Review Office (IRO), which means that when you choose Lionheart Lawyers, the IRO will fund your legal costs and you will not have to pay legal fees in relation to your workers compensation claim.

We understand just how stressful it can be to deal with injury and face an uncertain future at work. Let us take some of the burden off you and your family and help you lodge your claim, manage the process from start to finish and ensure you obtain the compensation you deserve.
