Construction Accident Attorneys in Phoenix, Arizona
Construction accidents can be caused by a multitude of things, whether it is due to a mechanical failure, negligence, or unsafe working conditions. Construction sites have a variety of hazards that could potentially cause a work site injury. Unfortunately, these accidents can potentially cause a person pain, discomfort, and/or permanent emotional and physical damage.
Construction Accident Preventions
It is the duty and obligation of a local Phoenix construction site to ensure the safety of its employees. For example, the construction site should:
- Follow OSHA (Occupation Safety & Health Administration) regulations and requirements in order to prevent any injuries that occur from any falling accidents. These accidents include serious falls from varying heights or scaffoldings.
- Make mechanics examine whether or not a machine meets all safety codes and regulations of the State and make operators of the machine periodically check to see if maintenance is required to avoid any machinery-related injuries and accidents. These accidents include crane or forklift accidents.
- Ensure that all construction workers who work on the electrical aspect of a construction site are experienced and trained so that explosions and other electrical accidents do not occur.
If caution and awareness are not a construction site's main priorities, then a construction accident injury or death will likely ensue.
Claims against Government Agencies or Public Entities
When a government or public employee or agency is negligent and causes an injury, there is a markedly different process involved as compared to a claim against an individual or private business. There is a much shorter time frame to bring a claim and a lawsuit. Therefore, there is an increased urgency to obtain legal counsel to timely submit a claim against a government agency or public entity. A more detailed explanation is available on our Government or Public Entities Claims Pages.
Such construction injuries can be facilitated by, but are not limited to, negligence, inattentiveness, or a conscious violation of safety codes and standards. Regrettably, these actions may cause unemployment, broken bones, back injuries, brain injuries, bodily burns, or, possibly, death.
