It should be a reasonable expectation that one is able to go to work, be safe, and return home uninjured, even in jobs where some risk is involved. There are laws and regulations created to protect the wellbeing of workers, even at the most dangerous jobs. Still, there are no regulations that can prevent the recklessness of another human being. If someone is going to disregard the measures that exist to keep everyone safe, chances are good someone is going to get hurt. When that happens, the one who caused injury should have to face the full consequences, including payment to the injured party.
