In every workplace, there exist potential dangers if employers and companies do not abide by safety protocols and mandatory safety regulations put in place by the United States Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Of course, some job fields are more dangerous than others. Due to the massive pieces of machinery, the heights at which employees must work, and other factors, construction is one of the most dangerous job fields in the U.S.

When a victim is injured and the accident could have been avoided if construction companies made reasonable efforts to provide safe conditions, the injured person or their family can file a personal injury lawsuit to pursue monetary compensation for any physical pains, medical expenses, or emotional damages they may have faced as a result of the accident.
