Although construction jobs tend to hold a degree of danger, it does not lessen the severity of a construction accident when it does happen. Many times, employees working on a job site may be at-risk for incurring personal injuries or potential fatalities if the site is poorly maintained or safety is sacrificed to expedite the job. Even if the worker survives the accident, the individual may be unable to earn an adequate income or maintain their quality of life due to catastrophic injuries.
