"Although most workplaces come with some inherent dangers, construction sites are especially hazardous work environments. While there are a variety of government bodies that attempt to regulate construction sites to ensure that they are safe places to work, accidents do happen. Many accidents are caused because of careless or intentional disregard for safety regulations. When these sorts of construction accidents occur, it is important to understand one’s legal options. Two potential options are filing a workers’ compensation claim or pursuing a personal injury lawsuit."
