What Does Arizona Law Say About Construction Accidents?
While surrounding circumstances do have a lot to do with it, there are situations where any accidents that happen on construction sites in Scottsdale might fall under the workers’ compensation laws set in place
for the state. The Scottsdale construction workers’ ability to get financial compensation might also fall under those same laws. Workers’ compensation laws entitle the injured worker to medical treatment, lost wages, and other financial benefits. In some cases, however, a construction worker’s accident could be caused by a third-party instead of the actual employer. In most instances, third-party liability is not subjected to workers’ compensation laws so the third-party that caused the accident might be held legally responsible for any injuries or damages you suffered.
If you have been injured in an accident that happened on or around a construction site and you are not employed by that construction company, you might be able to pursue a personal injury claim against that construction company to recover damages you have suffered because of the injuries sustained.
