Tucson Construction Accident Lawyers
Construction workers built this country. Every building you see was put together by hardworking people who have the skills and energy to do the job right.
Workers’ compensation applies to many construction accidents and injuries in Arizona. But it may not provide enough money to cover your financial needs. If you were injured on the job, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against a negligent third party.

Construction accidents are often caused by damaged equipment or unsafe working conditions, so it’s important to report the incident as soon as possible. That way, your employer can take actions to protect other workers from health hazards such as noxious fumes, machinery that isn’t working properly, or an unsecured elevator shaft.
Seek medical attention for your injuries right away. Follow your doctor’s recommendations and keep records for all your medical appointments.
Use your cell phone camera to take pictures or make a video of the accident site to document the conditions that caused your injuries.
You’ll want to contact a Tucson personal injury attorney as soon as you can. Your lawyer will review your situation and help you find the best option for getting the money you need to cover your expenses while you recuperate from the accident.
Construction work is hard. It’s also very dangerous. There are several types of hazards on a job site, and that’s why there are strict state and federal laws to protect construction workers. But careless people who are more concerned with profits than worker safety will often create inexcusable hazards.
Poor planning, lack of supervision, and failure to follow safety rules cause the following types of construction accidents:
- Vehicle collisions
- Unsafe machinery
- Falls from platforms and ladders
- Chemical burns
- Lack of safety equipment
- Falling objects
- Unsecured trenches
- Electric shock and electrocution
- Slip and falls
- Crane accidents
- Fires and explosions
- Exposure to unsafe chemicals
- Forklift injuries
- Open elevator shafts and elevator malfunction
Construction sites are often affiliated with an array of third parties that are responsible for various aspects of the operation. Your Tucson construction accident attorney will investigate the accident to find out what really happened. Then they will file a claim against any third party who contributed to your injuries.
Parties that may be held liable for your injuries include:
- General contractors
- Property owners
- Leasing companies
- Fellow employees
- Equipment manufacturers
- Service and equipment providers
In a third-party lawsuit, you may be able to recover damages that are much greater than the benefits provided by workers’ compensation. Claims may include the following types of damages:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Loss of income
- Reduced earning potential
- In-home nursing care
- Job retraining
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
