Employees in the construction industry risk their lives when performing daily tasks that are part of their jobs. Even the most careful workers may unexpectedly sustain a wide variety of injuries that may inflict significant physical damage to them or even cause fatalities. In some cases, employers may fail to ensure that the worksite is secure from danger or provide enough safeguards to protect employees, which may lead to a tragic accident.
