Construction-related injuries are some of the most prevalent types of work-related injuries. Given the physically intensive nature of the job, the risk of being injured is inherently greater. Injuries can happen suddenly by lifts, falls, drops or equipment failure. Conditions can also develop over time from repeated use or constant bodily strain. While sudden injuries are easier to prove and recover benefits for, gradual injuries also entitle the worker to benefits.
