Phoenix Construction Accident Lawyer
Arizona Workplace Injury Attorney
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 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 recent boom 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:
- Crane accidents
- Scaffolding accidents
- Electric shock
- Fires and explosions
- Welding accidents
Because the workers compensation laws in this state provide limited recoveries (no award for 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. If we agree to represent you, we handle most construction accident or on the job accident cases on a contingency fee basis .
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. 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.
