An increase in housing construction may lead to an increase in Workers’ Compensation claims

The Washington Post recently reported that housing construction posted a better-than-expected increase in January.  This activity is the highest level in six months.  This slump has been the worst in decades.  However, this gain provides a glimmer of hope to the industry and a return to work for Georgia’s construction workers.
