LOS ANGELES CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
A construction site is typically full of hazards you wouldn’t encounter in any other workplace. Strict safety regulations mitigate the risk of injuries and deaths. However, statistics show that it remains a high-risk work environment.
About 20 percent of fatalities in the U.S. labor force occur in construction, although construction workers only make up 5 percent of the workforce.
Construction companies are known to often cut corners and bypass safety regulations to save time and money.
Workers and subcontractors are often reluctant to seek fair compensation for injuries sustained, fearing it might cost them their job or deprive them of future job opportunities.
