Some people believe that jobs that require more hard labor are somehow not good enough. Where this rumor started, we don’t know. What we do know is that if you are someone who works in construction then you are someone who truly understands a hard day’s work. Working in construction is truly for those who enjoy the outdoor life and who like to get dirty. Construction workers are easy to find. You can normally see them on the roads you are driving, the houses building in your neighborhood, and the skyscrapers that adorn the city streets. Without construction workers, we wouldn’t have the infrastructure we have today. Without construction workers, we wouldn’t have the roadways to ease our commute to work or the houses that we choose to live in. A construction worker is someone who enjoys hard labor and puts their lives at risk every day they show up to work.
Construction accidents also happen every day. Depending on the severity, sometimes those accidents mean that you can’t return to work for a long time. Construction workers do not always work on a salary, most get paid hourly and they work hard to get every penny they can to support their families. So when you get into an accident at work there is a lot more to stress about than the injury you sustained.
If you depend on hourly paychecks then you are even more subject to loss of wages. As medical bills pile up, so do other bills and before you know it you and your family are facing a financial crisis.

Our job is not done until we see that you are getting compensated for medical bills, travel expenses for medical treatment, loss of wages, and short-term or long-term disability.
Common Construction Accidents
The overwhelmingly most common accident for construction workers is falling. About 37% of injuries come from workers falling from unprotected sides, wall openings, floor holes, and misuse of ladders, scaffolds, and roofs. The second most common is getting struck by an object and then getting electrocuted. California is a no-fault state, they require each business to have workers’ compensation insurance, and they require your employer to discuss with your workers’ compensation options as part of your training.
