Phoenix Construction Accident Lawyer

Construction accidents frequently cause injuries and damages to workers. If you’ve been injured by someone else’s careless actions, a construction accident lawyer in Phoenix is here to help get your life back on track.

A construction accident can impact your ability to live life the way you did before. You may be forced into paying for costly medical treatment at the same time your injury keeps you away from work. To make matters worse, knowing someone else is responsible for your injuries could harm your emotional well-being. 

Fortunately, a Phoenix construction accident lawyer will help you file a claim so you may fully recover from your losses. 

Common Types of Construction Accidents

As a construction worker, part of your job involves dealing with the inherent threats of your profession every day. Construction sites are common staging grounds for accidents, as employees expose themselves to risk by working with heavy machinery, or from lofty surfaces. 

Sadly, when accidents do occur, they have the potential to cause significant damage to injured workers—financially, physically, and emotionally. Some accidents commonly seen in injury claims include:

  • Falls from heights
  • Falling debris, tools, bricks, etc
  • Vehicle accidents
  • Heavy machinery accidents
  • Burns
  • Inhalation of fumes
  • Electrocution

Accidents can happen any time, regardless of the skill or experience of the worker involved. Fortunately, if you’ve been injured on the job, a trusted construction accident lawyer will help you secure the compensation you need. 

Construction Accident Injuries

Given the frequent use of heavy machinery—as well as other risk factors—construction accidents range from the serious to the deadly. Even an accident such as a slip-and-fall, which may not be as serious in the other contexts, can often have drastic consequences within a construction site. 

Some of the injuries one can expect to deal with following a construction accident include: 

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Broken bones
  • Amputation of fingers or limbs
  • Disfigurement 
  • Burns
  • Death

Understanding the Value of Your Construction Accident Claim

Although the Arizona workers compensation system could allow you to recover some money to pay for your medical bills and lost wages, it more than likely will not be sufficient to cover all of your expenses, especially if you’ve suffered a serious or catastrophic injury. 

Arizona law mostly protects your employer from being sued directly for a construction accident injury. But this leaves some holes in your compensation, especially where potential non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, could apply. 

As an injured worker, you may be able to bring a third-party suit against other negligent actors in your case, such as subcontractors, general contractors, vendors, or other employees—meaning that you could still get the compensation you deserve. Due to the complex nature of these cases, many injured workers choose to consult an experienced attorney for guidance.
