While some of the most common workplace accidents occur in construction areas, they can also occur in a normal office environment. Accidents occur in these places are often the result of inadequate maintenance and poor protection against forseeable dangers.
In most circumstances, an employer or owner could be liable for injuries to employees if they do not prevent forseeable harm. For instance, if the office is full of exposed nails and an employee is injured by one of the nails, then the employee may be able to sue for medical expenses and other damages.

A crane at a construction site collapsed in Cedar Rapids Thursday. The accident occurred where a new courthouse was being built, but no one was injured in the accident.
According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, crane accidents kill about 82 people each year in the United States. These accidents are particularly dangerous because of the equipment's large size and heavy weight.
