Working in construction certainly comes with its risks. There’s many ways you can become injured while working on a construction job. You could fall, get hit by moving machinery and various other scenarios. In fact, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 17 percent of the fatal occupational injuries that occur in the entire state of Arizona can be contributed to construction accidents.Fortunately, if you do become seriously injured in a construction accident, Zanes Law has both Tucson and Phoenix construction accident lawyers who can assist you.
For the following reasons, people who’ve been involved in Arizona construction accidents will most likely find it beneficial to contact a lawyer immediately (or at least as soon as possible) after getting injured.
Chances are you don’t know all the laws pertaining to Arizona construction accidents. This might be especially true if you’ve never been involved in a construction accident before. However, at Zanes Law our Tucson and Phoenix personal injury lawyers do know all the ins and outs of the laws pertaining to construction accidents and your rights.

Usually the first advice that our construction accident lawyers will give you is to write down anything you can remember about the accident. Ideally, there will be video footage of your accident because some construction sites do have video surveillance cameras. But most injured victims are not fortunate enough to have a video recording of what happened. So being able to recount the events in as much detail as possible can help strengthen your case. It’s best to try to write down details as soon as you are able to after the accident because we tend to forget little details as more time passes. It is those little details that might seem insignificant, but they can end up making all the difference in the long run. Your Zanes Law accident lawyer will further help you gather evidence by speaking to the other parties involved on your behalf and using resources available to him or her to research all the details involving your particular case.
Each accident is different, and the circumstances surrounding your particular construction accident will help determine what type of lawsuit you need to file in order to seek compensation for your injuries. For instance, if you were injured on the job, then you might need to file for workers compensation. However, in other instances, you might need to file a personal injury lawsuit. There’s many conditions that must be met in order for a situation to fall under either category or lawsuit, and our lawyers are familiar with all those issues. Your Zanes Law accident lawyer will determine what type of lawsuit you need to file based upon the details of your case.
Much paperwork and legwork goes into filing a lawsuit. You have to fill out and submit the appropriate documents to the court within a specified time frame, and if you make a mistake, it could end either make your case take much longer to resolve or, in the worst case scenario, bar you from bringing a lawsuit all together.
