Construction Accidents Categories
Many of these accidents are caused by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Agency) violations or negligence on the part of the property owner, contractor, or subcontractor. Other incidents are simply workplace accidents unrelated to employer negligence while others are a result of defective equipment.
