Whether on small projects for individual homeowners. or major projects for large commercial developments, construction workers face dangerous working conditions every day. As a result, serious work-related injuries at construction sites occur with alarming frequency.
Every year, thousands of construction workers and laborers are killed or seriously injured while working at construction sites. Accidents on the job result in the deaths of nearly 5,000 workers each year. This occurs even though state and federal regulations, as well as industry standards, require owners, general contractors, and subcontractors to implement a wide variety of measures to prevent injuries due to construction negligence.
Although workers' compensation helps employees while injured on the job, it is usually not enough to fully compensate injured workers for all the damages sustained as a result of their work-related construction accidents.
