Sadly, workplace and construction accidents occur all too often. Last year, there were over 4,300 fatal work injuries in the United States, as well as tens of thousands of other catastrophic injuries to individuals while working on the job. Many times, the injuries or deaths are due to the negligence of third parties, equipment defects or failures, and not operator error.
