    $2,500 is less coverage than an AD&D insurance claim for a severed pinkie fingertip, which is somewhere around the tune of $7,800. That amount is worth less than a fingertip, much less a life.

    ($2,500. Wow. Big consolation. )

    Incredible. Especially since OSHA will fine you an exorbarant amount of money, shut the job site down, and post an inspector on a port-a-potty if it runs out of TP and is reported.

    My brother-in-law loved to do that. He had OSHA on speed dial. He was a subcontractor by trade, a drywaller. If the GC was a jerk, he'd call OSHA and watch the facility be ground to a halt.
