Construction Worker Accidents In Texas
It is no secret that the construction industry is one that presents various challenges to workers. The unpredictable working conditions these individuals deal with make it an extremely dangerous job. Sadly, this industry leads among all others in the total number of work fatalities in the nation. Construction workers along roadways are particularly disadvantaged because they are often focused on their work, which leaves them vulnerable to distracted drivers.
