Construction Workers: Why They Are At A Higher Risk Of Injury
General contractors, subcontractors and other construction site workers typically face heightened danger on a daily basis. Working with heavy machinery such as forklifts and bulldozers means the potential of crushed limbs or amputations.
Exposed electrical wiring leaves workers open to electrocution. Working on scaffolding surfaces can result in falls that can and do cause neck and back injuries and even death.
In many instances, construction workers can receive workers’ compensation benefits for their injuries. In other situations, they may be able to pursue additional compensation outside of the workers’ comp system.
At Brenna Boyce, we can help.
