Construction Accidents

In Arizona, one of the most prominent industries in the Phoenix area has long been construction. The valley has grown exponentially in the past two decades, and a booming construction business has grown alongside this development. Unfortunately, accidents on site at construction jobs are all too common.

Construction Site Injuries

Make sure you're compensated for injuries in a construction accident. Construction sites can be dangerous places. Usually there are many contractors at one site and the chaos and dangerous activities on the work site can result in significant hazards.

On the job injuries can be particularly difficult to deal with, because they not only result in physical pain but also affect your livelihood and ability to support yourself.

Worker’s Compensation Claims

If you have been injured on the job at a construction sight, the first step is to make a worker’s comp (Workman’s Compensation) claim. Your employer should have workers comp insurance that will cover the cost of any injury-related medical expenses and pay a portion of your income in the event that you are unable to work.

As long as your injury occurred in the course and scope of your employment, you should be entitled to worker’s compensation benefits for your construction accident injuries.
