Construction is one of the most dangerous job industries in the US. Fatalities and serious personal injuries are an ever-present risk. As a seriously injured construction worker, you may be able to make a claim to pursue compensation. If your accident was caused by someone else's negligence, or by defective tools or equipment, you may be able to get compensated for your medical bills, lost wages and for other things.
