One of the most dangerous jobs in the US is construction work. This is because quite often, workers have to work on inclines and really high elevations. Therefore, any worker in construction needs to have great balance, and also be able to work with their hands. However, if companies decide to save some cash, and ignore various safety procedures, and then this leads to an accident, the injured worker is entitled to get compensation for all their injuries. Most construction work injuries are usually dangerous and more often than not cause permanent disability.
