What to know if you've been injured on site

Compared to the majority of working environments, construction sites are regarded as one of the most dangerous. In fact, when it comes to the likelihood of injury or death, the construction industry ranks third in Australia, just behind agriculture and transport.

Unfortunately, even when all necessary safety precautions and standards on a construction site are met, accidents like slipping, tripping or falling from a height can still occur—and these can lead to serious and expensive injuries, particularly to the knees, shoulders, hips, back and neck.

If you get injured at work, you may face a range of costs, such as payments for immediate medical treatments and ongoing rehabilitation, as well as lost income due to your being unable to work. That's why it's important to get help securing the compensation you deserve. A compensation payout can cover all your medical and like expenses and provide you the income you need to recover properly and get back to work safely.

If you’ve experienced a fall or sustained any other injury on a construction site, we recommend you contact a Maurice Blackburn work-related injury lawyer as soon as you can. Whether you simply fell and hurt your knee or you wound up in traction, if you’ve suffered any injury or been harmed in a building site accident you may be eligible for compensation.
