LegalView Calls Attention to Trend of Construction Accidents with Resources for Employees

Share Article

One out of every five workers killed on the job in the United States is a construction worker, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The BLS also reports that construction had the third highest rate of workplace fatalities in the country in 2005. In recognition of this ongoing problem, LegalView would like to remind readers that they can always find accurate, comprehensive information on construction site accidents for free at its construction accident portal site.

Your online resource for everything legal, LegalView.com, is pleased to remind concerned workers and their loved ones that it has built one of the Internet's most comprehensive collections of information on construction accidents. Construction consistently scores among the top five most dangerous industries in the country, according to information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics; almost a quarter of all workplace deaths in 2005, 22.8 percent, were the deaths of construction workers. Construction workers sustained 6.3 injuries for every 100 full-time workers in 2005, according to the Bureau, well over the rate of 4.6 per every 100 workers in all private industry. Of these accidents, more than half required time off or a transfer of duties. And according to a 2003 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, fatalities of laborers, fabricators and operators cost our economy more than $3.7 billion each year.

And of course, those costs don't begin to take into account the emotional and financial costs to the families of those workers affected by construction accidents.
