In the United States there are laws and regulations in place that protect hardworking citizens from dangers they may be subject to in the workplace. While laws and regulations differ across the nation, decisions made by top tier courts in one state can drastically influence those in others. Due to the fact that accidents occur in the workplace on a daily basis, workers that engage in dangerous labor, especially those operating on American motorways, are only protected by the extent of the law.
