What are some construction zone fatality statistics?

As a construction worker or the family member of a construction worker, it's important that you understand the risks of your job or the risks faced by your loved ones. Construction accidents can take place anywhere, whether your loved one works on the roads or not. However, highway work zones can be particularly dangerous. Drivers who don't stop or slow down can collide with construction workers, causing serious injuries to those who survive. Others may not be so fortunate.

With increasing safety laws and better protective equipment, your safety should be guaranteed, right?

And a worker receiving one type of benefit may be curious about the effect of becoming eligible for the other type of benefit. In this post, we will answer these two questions but postpone for the moment questions of eligibility for either workers' compensation or SSD benefits.
