It seems every day there is a new construction project being built in Austin. It is exciting to see these projects rise up on the city skyline, but if you or a loved one is working on one, it can be scary as well. You may be afraid that if you report your injury that you will lose your job. You may worry about what coworkers or your supervisors will think of you. And, you may even be concerned that you will not be able to afford the medical care that you need.
