Construction accidents often occur when workers on construction sites are faced with dangerous conditions. Although federal and state regulations are designed to keep workers safe, accidents and injuries can still happen on a regular basis, especially when foremen and/or property owners disregard those regulations or act negligently.
These preventable accidents can often have catastrophic results. While workers’ compensation benefits are available for injured workers, those benefits are not always enough to cover the wide range of expenses following such serious and life-changing accidents.
