Gadsden Construction Accident Attorney
Working at a construction site is one of the most hazardous jobs in the United States. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, over 150,000 workers are injured in construction site accidents every year. Severe injuries to construction workers are life-altering. Since construction work is usually heavy duty and there is frequently no light or moderate duty work available, a serious injury can mean the loss of a career. Since tradesmen are usually well paid and have excellent benefits, it’s almost impossible for the injured worker to find a comparable occupation.
