Construction workers are routinely injured in accidents due to dangerous conditions that employees in this industry face every day.

It is one of the most dangerous jobs in the United States.
Construction accidents can result in serious injury, permanent disability, and permanent loss of employment. Florida has numerous safety codes and regulations to prevent workers from being injured. In many cases, however, construction companies and contractors ignore these codes in order to cut costs—and a construction worker is seriously hurt or killed as a result.
