Construction work can be strenuous and dangerous. The long hours are tiring, while risks abound from the difficult conditions, extreme temperatures and elevated heights. Thousands of construction workers are injured every year while building skyscrapers, apartments, homes and commercial buildings. Some of them even die. They may fall from roofs, ladders and scaffolding or through holes, or they may be struck by objects, electrocuted, and struck or crushed by equipment. Injuries sustained from construction accidents may include brain injuries, quadriplegic injuries and paraplegic injuries; broken bones, such as wrist, arm, ankle and hip fractures; and even death.
There are many reasons these accidents occur. It could be defective equipment, improper safety, lack of training and negligence on the part of the construction company.
