Construction Site Accidents
Construction is one of the largest industries in the United States and construction sites can be extremely dangerous. While these environments can have a higher risk for injury, workers are required to be properly trained in operating machinery, and the site should be properly managed according to legal standards. Common construction accidents include various kinds of falls, fires and explosions, and electrical accidents. While workers compensation may cover someone injured, additional damages may be available for pain and suffering or defective products.
