Why are construction accidents so common and who is responsible?

As a construction worker, you put your body and well-being on the line every day you show up to work. This is because your body is your tool and main source of income and success in your profession. Unlike the typical desk job, construction workers have a very different perspective when it comes to their typical job duties and how it can impact their health. This is because construction worker accident injuries are much more common in comparison to the standard office job.

In many states, injured workers who cannot return to their former employment are entitled to this type of rehabilitation at the expense of their employer's workers' compensation carrier.

Applying for SSD? Here's what you need to know

No-one wants to be sick or otherwise not in perfect health. It can really put dark cloud over every aspect in a person's life when their health isn't in a good place. When it comes to being able to work, it can be nearly impossible if an illness or an injury has made it nearly impossible to find, keep or show up to a job. Sometimes, one needs to look at the options available to them when working is no longer an option.
