There are countless pitfalls in the construction trade. Negligence on the worksite can lead to serious spinal or brain injuries. Construction accidents can be caused by many things – defective equipment, for example, or trench cave-ins. Ladders and harnesses can fail. A piece of falling equipment or scaffolding can cause a long-term medical condition that affects you and your family.
A fall on a construction site can make the difference between having a reliable job and losing it due to an injury.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, at least one in 20 construction workers are involved in an accident each year. Contractors and property owners are liable for construction accidents under OSHA regulations and worker’s compensation laws.
