Construction Site Injury Cases

Construction sites are some of the most dangerous places to work. Every year, thousands of hard-working construction workers sustain injury in a construction site accident. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) states that the construction industry has one of the highest rates of work-related fatalities in the nation. Unfortunately, many of those accidents are completely preventable. Construction companies often ignore safety measures to cut back on costs, thus creating unsafe working conditions.
