Mesa Construction Site Accident Lawyers
As Mesa and the surrounding area continue to grow, there are more and more construction sites popping up all over the place - and more and more workplace injuries are happening as a result.
You may not realize this, but construction is actually one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. In fact, workers on construction sites risk injury on an almost daily basis. Many times, these workers believe that if they are injured on the job, their only recourse is to use workers' compensation. But that's not the case. The fact of the matter is that in Mesa - and throughout the state - personal injury claims can be made in addition to workers' compensation.
Filing a workers' compensation claim after a construction site accident in Mesa is critical for the injured worker and his family. These claims provide funds for medical care, even though it's not always the best, as well as compensation for a portion of lost wages - typically not all, though. Therefore, it's important to consider making a personal injury claim, which can provide funds for better medical treatment, full compensation for lost wages, any bills or expenses related to the accident, loss of enjoyment of life, frustration, anxiety, and depression.
Many times, though, we see construction workers who have been injured on the job and simply depend on the workers' compensation system. They don't know their rights under personal injury law. But since many construction site accidents are caused by subcontractors or other workers who fail to properly follow OSHA and other related laws, personal injury claims can often times be made - without forfeiting any money under workers' compensation. In other words, any funds awarded in a personal injury claim are in addition to funds received through workers' compensation.
There aren't any limits as to which kinds of construction accidents can lead to personal injury claims. In fact, here at The Husband & Wife Law Team, we've seen many different types of accidents that have led to successful claims. These include falls from scaffolding or from different heights, injuries caused by collapsing walls, ceilings, or floors, injuries due to electrical issues, accidents caused by heavy equipment operation, crane accidents, or falling equipment, and trench accidents. While there are many accidents that happen even when everyone does their job right, there are also many accidents that occur due to the negligence of another person. Maybe that person cut corners or intentionally ignored a safety rule. Whatever the cause, they need to be held accountable for their actions and filing a personal injury claim in Mesa is a good way to ensure that more people won't be injured in the future due to unsafe workplace conditions.
