Construction Accident Injury Settlements
Every year, according to official statistics almost 6000 US citizens die and about 6.5 million have experienced occupational injuries. Those are types of personal injuries that occur on the place of a person’s employment and can appear as a result of exposure to toxic substances or other accidents. The most severe consequences appear in the construction work field, as it is the most hazardous and physically demanding one. This comes as a result of the fact that often construction worker supervisors neglect some safety requirements in order to finish a job on time, as deadlines and construction contracts are often pressuring building companies. Although all construction companies claim that their employee security policy is very strict the true facts are that those in charge of the management of a construction crew mainly care about completing their targets but not securing the working process properly.
