Workplace accidents could cause life-threatening injuries

Construction workers are exposed to potentially life-threatening conditions each day. In addition to the threats posed by ladders, scaffolds and forklifts, mechanized equipment could cause severe injuries in workplace accidents. While construction company owners in California have a duty to provide safe working environments for their workers, they may not neglect ongoing safety training. Unfortunately, sometimes work accidents occur anyway, which is one reason employers are usually required to carry workers' compensation insurance to help cover injured workers.
