The very nature of construction work makes it a dangerous profession. In some cases construction accidents result in the worker permanently losing a limb, extremity, or digits. An accident of this nature will affect the worker and his family for the rest of their lives. Many times the amputation is the result of negligence on the part of the construction company. In these situations the worker is entitled to recover damages from the construction company.
