Deadly Construction Accidents in Florida
Construction work may be quite dangerous. When people decide to work in the sector, the majority are completely aware of this. In the US, the construction industry is to blame for 1 in 5 employee-related fatalities. The cause of over 60% of fatal construction accidents is falling objects.
On the job, construction workers incur the danger of being hit by falling debris. When you least expect it, sharp things like hatchets, hammers, and other items might fly off shelves or out of boxes. Serious neck injuries or traumatic brain injuries can occur when someone is hit by an item at a construction site.
Never think the worst won’t occur because it hasn’t in the past. Always be on the lookout to avoid suffering a catastrophic accident from something as simple as negligence.
