What Does Arizona Law Say About Construction Accidents in Arizona?
Depending on the circumstances, accidents on construction sites in Arizona may fall under the State workers’ compensation laws. The construction worker’s ability for financial recover may also fall under those same workers’ compensation laws, which entitle the injury person to medical care and a variety of other financial benefits. But, in some cases, a construction accident is caused by a third-party. Third-party liability is generally not subject to workers’ compensation laws, and the third-party me be held legally responsible for your injuries.
If you have been involved in an accident on or around a construction site, and you are not employed by the construction company, you may be able to recover damages from the construction company.
