Can I Claim For A Fall On A Building Or Construction Site?

Can I Claim For Building collapses On A Building Or Construction Site?
Strict safety regulations make building collapses quite rare in Australia, but they still happen occasionally. Often caused by a combination of bad weather conditions and substandard scaffolding, building collapses can cause life-threatening injuries to construction workers. In most cases, workers are able to claim for injuries sustained as a result of a building collapse.
Can I Claim For Respiratory diseases I suffered Whilst On A Building Or Construction Site?
Most likely, yes. Inhaling dangerous materials, such as coal dust or asbestos, can cause long-term health problems. Construction workers are often exposed to these kinds of materials, making them more likely to develop respiratory diseases.
Can I Claim For A Back, Neck, Knee And Other Physical Injuries I Had On A Building Or Construction Site?
The repetitive movements associated with construction work can lead to painful wear and tear injuries over time. Often requiring reconstructive surgery, these ailments can restrict your range of movement whilst causing chronic discomfort. In most cases, workers are able to claim for these types of injuries.
How Long Do I Have To Claim Workers' Compensation From A Building And Construction Accident?
Your right to claim will usually have an expiration date. Depending on the type of injury you have sustained, you may only have a small window of time in which to take legal action. To avoid missing any deadlines, lodge your claim as quickly as possible.
Will I Need To Go To Court For A Building And Construction Injury Claim?
Most personal injury claims settle well before there is a need for you to appear in court. For the matters that don't settle before court, the injured person's testimony is most often beneficial to the claim.
Who Pays Workers' Compensation Benefits?
In cases involving workers' compensation, the employer’s insurance company will usually pay for any compensation or damages awarded to the injured employee.
