Construction Work Injury In Phoenix

Construction Work Injury In Phoenix

Construction work can be strenuous and dangerous. Long hours are tiring and hazards abound due to difficult conditions, extreme temperatures and high altitudes. Thousands of construction workers are injured every year building skyscrapers, apartments, homes and commercial buildings. Some injuries can even result in death.

There are many reasons why these accidents happen. It could be faulty equipment, insufficient safety, lack of training or negligence on the part of the construction company. If you are one of the many construction workers who are seriously injured on the job, you need an experienced and assertive attorney who knows personal injury law.

Everyone who suffers an injury on the job is entitled to compensation. But some legitimate claims are denied by employers, and even if your claim is accepted it may not provide adequate compensation, especially for serious injuries. Depending on how you were injured, additional compensation may be available through a lawsuit.

Our Phoenix Work Injury Attorney can explain your legal rights and help you through the entire process.

How To Get The Most Compensation For My Construction Injury

Receiving only two-thirds of your average wage through workers' compensation means you may face financial cutbacks while recovering from an injury. And if you don't sue your employer for a work-related injury, you can sue third parties with whom you don't have an employment relationship. Workers' compensation does not preclude a third-party claim; you may be able to get money for the injury from both parties.

For example, if you are a construction worker who trips and falls on equipment that was left on the floor by a subcontractor working for a company other than your own, you may have a claim against the subcontractor or your employer. The property owner or general contractor may also be liable for failing to maintain a safe work environment.

Similarly, if you are driving a company vehicle during work hours and are struck and injured by another driver, the driver may be liable for your injuries.

In any accident there may be numerous "third parties" who contributed to your injuries. Third party wrongful death claims are also possible.

A careful investigation of the accident by an experienced attorney can uncover all of the people who may potentially be liable and give you the best chance of obtaining adequate compensation.

Legal Help for Construction Workplace Accidents in Arizona

Under Arizona law, you must immediately report a workplace accident to your supervisor. You have one year from the date the accident occurred - or the date you became aware of your injury - to file a workers' compensation claim. For third-party claims, you have two years to initiate legal action.

Before these deadlines expire, you should discuss your accident with an attorney. Our law firm will not only help you make sure your claim is accepted, we can also help you protest a denied claim and explore a possible lawsuit against someone who is not your employer or co-worker.
