The equipment and tools that make construction work possible, including heavy machinery, power tools, and electrical hardware, can also cause life-altering injuries. An exposed power line, a misplaced ladder, or a malfunctioning jackhammer could all result in a serious injury or a fatality. A construction site injury can have devastating effects on your life. You may be disabled by your injury, either temporarily or permanently, and wondering how you’re going to survive without the income from your job. You may have to undergo extensive medical treatments or job retraining, either of which could leave you feeling uncertain about your future.
