Construction Site Accidents
Construction work is dangerous work. Workers are constantly dealing with heavy equipment and hazardous substances, while placing themselves in potentially dangerous situations in order to construct new buildings, high rise complexes, major industrial developments, highway construction, or any other type of construction project. The Bureau of Labor studies have shown that due to the dangerous nature of construction work, many thousands of construction workers are killed on the job site every year, while tens of thousands of others sustain serious personal injuries. Major construction jobs are very common in and around greater Boston.
