When we drive by a construction site in California and elsewhere, we often think to ourselves what might be constructed. Is it a new home? Could it be a new store? Or maybe it is an office building. No matter what is being constructed, though, the reality is that numerous construction workers will participate in the building and completion of the structure. While these workers are trained and provided safety equipment, this is not always enough to protect one from dangerous situation. Unfortunately, construction site accidents occur, resulting in serious injuries to workers.
While it is well known that construction sites can be dangerous, most construction companies take the time to ensure that safe work habits are practiced and workers are properly trained. Unfortunately, this only protects a worker so much. Unexpected risks and dangers could occur or safely equipment could fail. In these matters, a serious fall accident could occur, severely injuring a construction worker.
