According to the most recent data from The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), in 2011, 4,609 workers were killed on the job. Of that total, 17.6 % were in the construction industry. In fact, contractors represented 12% of all fatal work injuries in 2011.
Without question, construction accidents can cause serious injuries including brain injuries, burn injuries, spinal cord injuries, eye injuries and even wrongful death.
