Construction can be a very dangerous field to work in. At the very least, you deal daily with heavy machinery and large loads of building materials. Working outdoors can mean variable weather conditions, which can also lead to disaster. Additionally, in many construction accidents, improperly maintained equipment or human error just adds to the risk of bodily harm.
It's important to understand that not all construction accidents are subject to the limitations of workers' compensation. If an employee of a subcontractor is injured, and the injury was caused by something under the control of the general contractor, they may be liable for the injury. And since the worker was employed by the sub rather than the general contractor, the injury may well be out of the scope of workers' compensation and you may be able to recover full damages.
