Disadvantage on the Labour Market
Due to the serious injuries sometimes suffered as a result of construction site accident many victims find themselves in a position where they are unable to return to work in the same capacity again, whether on a construction site or not. This leaves them at a disadvantage on the labour market. If you have suffered significant injuries as a result of your accident on a construction site and can not return to your previous employment or trade you are entitled to claim compensation for this loss over and above your claim for personal injury. This is even the case if your capacity to work is reduced to a lower level than before your construction site accident.
