Surveyor Injury Claims

Accident at Work Injury Claims

Surveyors are required to visit sites for a variety of reasons. If you’re a visiting surveyor, it is the site owner’s responsibility to keep you from harm. Unfortunately, accidents do happen, and sometimes you may be caught in the crossfire and suffer an injury. Common causes of injury include uncovered potholes, equipment and materials left in unsuitable places, falls from a height and slips and trips.

If you have suffered an injury on a construction site that could have been avoided, you may be entitled to compensation. Our solicitors will be able to tell you in as little as five minutes whether you’re able to make a claim and help you through the claims process.

Contact us today to discuss your accident by calling 0161 358 0800. Alternatively, complete the form located on this page and a member of the personal injury team will get back to you at convenient time.

Who is responsible?

Whether you’re a quantity, building or chartered surveyor, it is the site manager’s legal duty to prevent an injury from happening while you undertake your duties. Before you arrive on a site, it is important for site management to have undertaken a risk assessment of all the areas that you will be visiting and made efforts to reduce the amount of hazards.

In the result of an accident, if the site manager is found to have not fulfilled their legal obligations and you’re injured, then a claim can be brought against them. However, you should not worry about making a claim as all workplaces are required to take out an insurance policy, which covers injuries sustained to workers and visitors to a site without a financial impact on a business.

What to do when you have been injured

Should you unfortunately suffer an injury on a site, there are a number of things you should do if you’re able to. However, please note that these tips do not constitute as legal advice and are for guidance purposes only. For comprehensive advice, please contact the personal injury team.

  • Do not admit liability, even partial fault, until you have sought independent legal advice

  • If there are any witnesses, take their full name, contact number, address and email address

  • Make sure that the accident is entered into the Accident Report Book and check it is accurate before you countersign the entry

  • If you are injured, consider an ambulance or seek medical advice as soon as possible after the accident

  • Finally, if you believe the accident was not your fault, contact a personal injury law firm, such as Aequitas Legal, to make a claim

Making a claim for compensation

For a personal injury claim to be successful, you must be able to prove that the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. In these circumstances, this can constitute anything from a site manager’s failure to carry out a risk assessment to incorrectly erected scaffolding. Our personal injury solicitors will be able to investigate and gather evidence to help you prove that an accident was not your fault.

You have three years after an accident to make a claim, although, with injuries that have delayed symptoms, the time limit can begin from the moment it is realised that an accident at work was the reason for your injury, sometimes referred to as the date of knowledge.
