California is home to over 1 million jobs in construction. These jobs vary from managers to engineers to painters and maintenance crews. The industry is booming as the housing market is on the upswing and cities are ever expanding. From skyscrapers to housing developments to road repair, it is hard to miss construction workers as you drive down the road. Not to mention, it is hard to miss those big orange signs warning of traffic tickets for going over the speed. It is true, though. As you are driving it is important to watch out for construction workers because they are inevitably working to make your route safer and more enjoyable experience. But what if you are a construction worker and the accident is from an outside? What if you get injured on the job?
Most construction workers are contracted and not always official employed. As projects fade in and out so does the industry desire for full time workers. So what happens if you are only contracted and you get injured on the job? Or worse, what if you get permanently injured or if the injury causes your death?
