Common Causes of Construction Injuries
Within the construction industry, injuries often result from evens such
burns, explosions and electrocution. Workers are often injured while using construction
equipment or vehicles without proper training or instruction. Defective
tools and equipment can also lead to serious injuries.

present on construction sites should be wise to exercise extreme caution
and heightened vigilance at all times. The most effective way to reduce
or eliminate the possibility of a serious injury or fatality on a construction
site is diligence.

compensation from their employer. Workers' compensation usually covers
medical costs and lost wages as long as workers can prove liability. It
is important to remember though, that depending on the cause of the injury
and the parties at fault, additional recovery and compensation may be possible.
