Like many other industries, the construction industry is a vital industry to modern society. It is the means by which buildings, roadways, and the majority of others structures that we see every day get built. But unlike many other industries, in the construction industry, there is a substantial risk to the workers' safety if all of the equipment is not in top form and operated properly, or if any act of negligence or mishap were to occur.Work related accidents happen frequently and can be a matter of life or death particularly in the case of crane accidents. In fact, the construction industry has the highest rate of fatalities of all occupations in the United States. The operation of cranes hoisting heavy loads adds to the risk of serious injury associated with the construction industry.
Pedestrians bustling up and down the sidewalk is a normal part of the scenery of every city. And sidewalk travel is supposed to be safe. However, when you least expect it, you can slip and fall on uneven or cracked and broken sidewalks sustaining injury. The city and/or the owner of the property upon which you are walking is supposed to keep sidewalks and walkways in good repair to minimize the risk of injury to pedestrians.
Freeways today are populated with numerous different types of vehicles. Along with cars, SUVs and minivans, large trucks and tractor-trailers often travel up and down the freeway transporting goods to local stores and warehouses. Although it is normally safe to travel the roadways alongside these big rigs, often accidents do occur.
