Phoenix Construction Accidents and Arizona Law
While circumstances might vary, accidents on Phoenix AZ construction sites might fall under the Arizona State workers’ compensation laws. The construction worker’s ability to recover damages
might fall under those workers’ compensation laws, which entitle the injured worker to receive the medical care that is needed as well as other financial benefits. In some cases, a construction worker might be injured in an accident that was caused by a third-party.
Third-party liability is usually not subjected to workers’ compensation laws, so the third-party might be held liable for injuries that you suffered. If you have suffered injuries while on a construction site or around a construction site and you are not an employee of the construction company, you might be able to recover damages from the construction company through a personal injury claim.
Nate will assess your situation and determine what went wrong and how you were injured. He will then know how to proceed with your claim so you can get the compensation you deserve. You will need these funds to help with any medical expenses, past and future lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional and mental trauma, and any other damages that you might have incurred.
