Of all professions, construction work is one of the riskiest when it comes to the possibility of injury, or in some tragic instances, death. However, contractors and other employers still have an obligation to follow state and federal safety standards in order to provide a reasonably safe work environment for employees and others who have reason to be present at a construction site. When a contractor or other responsible entity fails to provide for worker safety and an accident results, the victim or victim’s family may be due financial compensation.
