Construction sites and other workplaces can be very dangerous places because of heavy equipment, chemicals, electricity and other hazards on the job site. Every year thousands of construction workers suffer on-the-job injuries, many of them permanent and some even resulting in death.
Common Types of Construction and Workplace Accidents

Statistics reveal that more than 50% of workplace injuries occur to workers under the age of 45. Accidents sometimes leave workers permanently disabled during their prime working and earning years. It is imperative that workers receive fair compensation for their injuries to cover their loss of wages, medical expenses, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, and more.
