When Construction Equipment Fails, Injured Workers Can Often Sue

November 20 2019

Construction job sites have come a long way over the past 50 years. No longer does equipment consist of only hammer and nails, along with a few table saws.

Construction workers need specialized safety equipment to minimize the risk of injuries and frequently require proper training on how to use the equipment.
