Construction is an industry that involves high-risk occupations. In fact, it ranks within the most dangerous jobs in America with 15.7 fatal injuries each year for each 100,000 full-time construction workers, based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Even with the standards set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, contractors on these constructions sites often fail to follow the proper standards which are outlined by Federal Law. As a result of this negligence, thousands of preventable personal injuries occur on construction sites every year. If you were the victim of such an injury, you have the right to seek compensation.
