Construction Accidents and Other On-the-Job Injuries
The injuries suffered by victims of construction accidents are often devastating and have major economic and emotional impact on the worker and his family. Construction workers are exposed to a wider variety of hazards and face a greater risk of work-related injury or fatality than employees in any other U.S. industry. According to a 2014 article in the Arizona Republic, within the last year there has been an alarming increase in Arizona’s workplace injuries and fatalities. There appear to be three main reasons for this: the returning increase in construction, the lax safety training and the growth in the number of non-English speaking workers. Serious medical problems can result from the following construction related accidents: roof-related falls, crane accidents, scaffolding accidents, non-roof falls, run-over by operating equipment, lifting equipment failure, electric shock, trench collapses, fires and explosions, hit by highway vehicle, compressed gases accidents and welding accidents.
Because the workers compensation laws in this state provide limited recoveries (no award of pain and suffering or future economic loss) to the injured employee, it is important to identify all parties responsible for your injuries to assure maximum recovery. We can help you to evaluate and pursue third-party claims against parties responsible for your injuries other than your co-employees and/or your employer. This will assure you the recovery you deserve. We handle construction accident cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that you will not owe us anything unless we obtain a verdict or settlement on your behalf. Immediate and aggressive investigation of these third-party claims is often essential to their success. We also have a Workers Compensation attorney who serves “of counsel” to the firm.
