Construction companies are usually mandated to carry insurance programs for its workers, as their nature of jobs is usually high-risk. Accidents from construction sites such as explosions, equipment malfunction, electrocution, slip and fall, falling construction debris, etc. usually happen in these kinds of environments, so most construction companies usually carry worker's compensation programs in cases of work-related accidents.
Nevertheless, this type of insurance program is mandatory since the workers are always exposed to dangerous machineries, equipment and vehicles which can injure or dismember workers leading to disability or even death. Since construction liability insurance programs work under the legal principles of tort laws that includes negligence and strict liability, it may not be hard for construction workers to file a worker's compensation claim.
Workers' compensation claims cover construction liability as part of worker's compensation laws and rights. Construction workers have their right to work in safe environments despite the apparent hazardous nature of their work. If they get injured, they are entitled to receive compensation for medical and rehabilitative treatment plus lost wages and other related expenses. Worker's compensation laws, in addition, has been revised and expanded to include trades such as construction to be held responsible for the control, supervision and knowledge over the construction process and its risks. Lawsuits are almost always the easy resort by injured employees, so to avoid such litigation, construction companies are obliged to provide worker's compensation insurance programs.
