Personal injury lawyers can help those who have been injured in construction accidents. Far too many workers throughout Phoenix, Tucson, Mesa, and all of Arizona do not have the full information they need after they have suffered an injury. On the job injuries for construction workers happen all the time. Afterwards, these people are often told that Arizona Workers Compensation claims are their only resource. Even some lawyers may not understand that, in many construction accident cases, this is not true. An experience injury lawyer can help sort out the cases that offer the ability to get compensation from both workers comp and the at-fault party. If workers realized they are not risking their comp benefits, they would be more likely to bring these claims that can help their families overcome the financial burden caused by these incidents.
The fact that construction sites in Arizona and throughout the country occur regularly, and are preventable in many cases, cannot be ignored. For instance, according to an article, a construction site accident at a power plant has claimed the life of a 28-year-old worker. Officials investigating the construction accident death scene said that a radiographer was conducting an inspection on an elevated scaffold when he became pinned between the boiler wall and scaffolding and sustained fatal injuries. No other workers were on the scaffolding at the time of the accident.
The worker had reportedly been employed by the company on and off since 2005 as he had a specialty skill using x-ray equipment to inspect pipe welds to ensure that the welds were solid. Occupational Safety and Health Administration are conducting an investigation into what caused this fatal construction accident to occur.
Unfortunately, construction accidents like this continue to occur in Arizona and other states. Although the cause of this accident has yet to be determined, in most cases the causes of fatal construction accidents in Arizona are improperly trained employees, lax safety standards, lack of supervision and these are far too often combined with the use of heavy construction equipment.
