The Bureau of Labors Statistics provides information on fatal work injuries in the state of Arizona. Overall, Arizona is becoming a safer place to work. Fatal construction accidents have become less common – much of this is thanks to the brave families of construction accident victims and their willingness to hold the industry accountable for worker safety.
In 2015, 69 people were killed while working in Arizona. 12 of these fatalities were individuals working in Arizona’s booming construction industry. Across the United States, several hundred thousand construction workers are injured while working at construction sites.
It’s important for families and construction accident victims to hold the industry accountable – otherwise safety standards won’t be changed fast enough to save lives and keep people healthy.
There are many causes for construction accidents in Arizona. Most construction accidents are caused by companies pressuring employees to work more quickly in order to hit tight deadlines tied to bonuses being paid out on their construction contract. Other construction accidents are caused by employers failing to properly screen and train their employees – leaving everyone on the construction site at risk. And if a construction company fails to properly maintain their equipment, the chances of a construction accident occurring rise significantly.

If you or a family member were involved in a construction accident, it’s important that appropriate medical care is immediately sought. In the days and weeks after an accident, you’re going to experience a potentially painful recovery. Medical care provided immediately after the accident can mean the difference between a lifetime of pain and lost mobility, and a full recovery from your injuries.
The company and their insurance companies will want to pressure you into accepting a quick cash offer to help compensate you for your injuries. In return, they’ll want you to sign a waiver, waiving your rights to sue the construction company in Arizona.
This is an important decision. You need to arm yourself with all of the facts surrounding your case, and seek the advices of a qualified construction accident attorney in Arizona. If you sign the waiver, or agree to accept their terms, you may be leaving a significant amount of money on the table.
In Arizona, construction accident victims may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, lost income from missing work, reimbursement of medical expenses, and compensation for the long-term effects of your injury. Injured at work claims can be costly for both employers and insurers. If they can get you to quickly sign away your legal rights to seek full compensation for your injuries, they’ll high-five eachother, take a big sigh of relief and chalk up a win.
Don’t wait around wondering about your legal rights. After a construction accident, you need to act quickly to arm yourself with the facts surrounding your case.
