Construction jobs can be well-paying, but they can be very dangerous. Even though workers are careful and take the necessary precautions to avoid getting injured or killed, the workplace poses many risks that can hurt even the most careful and safety conscious person. Frequently, the injuries are because your employer did not take adequate care or violated site and state safety regulations.
Just because a construction site is a dangerous place to work does not mean your supervisors, the general contractor, or your employer are free from their legal responsibility to keep workers safe
