Construction is by its very nature dangerous. It requires individuals to use power tools, electricity, and other equipment that often require special handling skills. For this reason, government agencies have set up regulations designed to protect construction workers from injury.
Unfortunately at times, in an attempt to cut costs or to finish a project quicker, these protective guidelines are overlooked. There are also instances when things simply just go wrong, even if the workplace and the equipment are all up to regulation. When this happens, the result can be an accident at a construction site. A construction accident attorney can provide assistance to a person who is dealing with the aftermath of a work-related injury.
