Construction Workers Compensation

You would be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t agree that construction work is a dangerous field to be in. Just a quick Google search can show you at least half a dozen people who have been killed just from the beginning of April in North Carolina alone in regards to construction sites. I was just reading about a twenty year old who fell while working on a high school construction project and died from his injuries. Twenty years old and he has perished. He was hardly out of high school himself, but unfortunately this is not an odd headline to see. Although this was regarded as an “isolated incident”, this is not an abnormal occurrence. While I could go on for quite a while about how avoidable this tragedy was, I will restrict myself to talking simply about how often we see people hurt at construction sites.

While I was in college, a new parking garage was being built on campus. During a class in a building nearby one day, there was a terrible sound. We all looked out the window to see a cloud of dust and we could not focus for the rest of the period out of concern and confusion. It turns out that part of the deck had collapsed and one man was seriously injured. The school called this an isolated incident, however three days later another man was hurt while doing restorations to another building on the other side of campus. Injuries on these sites are more common than any of us care to think about, however if you work in construction you cannot help but think about this. This is where we like to step in.
