Phoenix AZ Construction Accident Attorneys
Most people go to their job knowing that their workplace is secure and safe. Unfortunately, for construction workers, the story can be dramatically different. Construction work is among the most dangerous work of any industry in this nation, with workers facing workplace safety challenges that can lead to construction accidents and injuries that threaten lives, financial futures, and stable homes. Here's what you need to know about construction accidents:
The causes of construction accidents can vary depending on the type of job. Falling objects, live electrical wires, explosions, malfunctioning equipment, and slip and fall type injuries are common construction accident hazards on many sites. Negligent general contractors, sub-contractors, vendors, and employees can cause many of these dangers, which often prove extremely dangerous to construction workers at the job site. In fact, construction accidents often cause life-threatening conditions, require amputation or extensive reconstructive surgery, and tragically leave innocent victims with brain injuries, disfigurement, and other conditions that impact their ability to hold down a job or even pay for their own care.
While workers' compensation covers many construction accidents and the associated injuries, the money received in an Arizona workers' compensation claim often is not enough to provide for an injured worker's financial needs. In addition to workers compensation claims, injured construction workers often have the additional right to bring a lawsuit against the negligent party that worked for a different sub-contractor or company at the job site. This can include providing money to pay for a wider range of medical services, far more to compensate wage loss, and money that is not part of workers compensation for pain, loss of enjoyment of life, anxiety, and permanent disabilities.
Due to the extremely complicated nature of construction accidents, including issues like comparative fault, multiple layers of insurance coverage, and other complexities, it is recommended that injured worker consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as they are hurt to help determine the best course of care and legal action.
