This was the 1st time I've used Zanes Law. It was a fantastic experience for having to go through a situation most would rather not. The attorney and staff were always available to answer my questions and explained things clearly and were obviously 100% in my corner. My attorney, Jim, was very genuine and made me immediately comfortable when I came in to speak with him about my case. Every case manager I dealt with was patient and helpful. I would definitely return to Zanes should the time ever come again that I need a personal injury firm.

Zanes Law was a terrific legal experience. I first went to a law firm that only wanted me to go to physical therapy and pad the bill, so they could utilize my insurance policy to its capacity. Once I went to Zanes, they were honest, professional and prompt with calls almost once a week. Sometimes I got a call just because we did not have contact for close to two weeks. Some calls were to just ask how I was doing. I also received more money than originally discussed. Great job Zanes Law!!!!! If need be I will use their services again. THANKS

Causes of Construction Accidents

The Phoenix construction accident lawyers at Zanes Law see first hand that construction accidents occur because of hazardous conditions created by negligent employers or workers. These hazards include:

• Scaffolding accidents
• Crane collapse
• Wet surfaces that cause slip and fall injuries
• Unguarded edges
• Falling from extreme heights or a roof
• Negligent use of construction vehicles
• Electrocution
• Faulty protection from dangerous equipment
• Chemical spills
• Falling objects

When an employer or a third party fails in its duties to provide a safe environment on a construction site and injuries or illnesses result, they may be held liable for any resulting damages. To learn more about your legal options, contact a Zanes Law construction site accident lawyer.

Common Injuries Our Construction Injury Lawyers See

AzTLA awards_logo4The Zanes Law construction injury lawyers have seen the horrible consequences of construction site negligence. The injuries that follow can change lives and include:

• Broken bones
Burns
• Electrocution
• Knee and ankle injuries
• Neck, shoulder or back injuries
Brain injuries
• Eye injuries
• Injuries caused by exposure to toxic chemicals

These injuries often leave a victim in severe pain, permanently disabled or in some instances are fatal. It is under these circumstances that the Phoenix construction accident lawyers at Zanes Law step in and fight for our clients.

What Kind of Claim Can I Bring?

If you were injured on a construction site, you may be able to bring one or more claims against the at-fault party with the help of the Zanes Law Phoenix construction accident lawyers.

Workers’ Compensation Claim

Employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance for their employees, which can provide relief for expenses directly caused by a work-related injury and partial pay for missed time at work.

Employees do not have to prove fault in a workers’ compensation claim but rather simply have to demonstrate that an injury has occurred. If you have been injured on a construction site and think that you have a worker’s compensation claim, call and speak with a construction site accident lawyer at Zanes Law and get your questions answered today.

Personal Injury Lawsuit

Because employers are required to provide workers’ compensation for injured employees, workers cannot file personal injury lawsuits against their employers for work-related injuries. However, it may be possible to file a claim against a third party that was responsible for causing your injury.

Third parties on a construction site include those who operate independently or separate from the company that employs the injured person. A third party can include:

• General contractor
• Sub-contractor
• Prime contractor
• Construction site owner
• Equipment suppliers
• Equipment/machinery manufacturers
• Guests or trespasser to the construction site
• Architects and engineers

A construction accident victim can file a personal injury claim if he or she can prove that the third party directly caused his or her injury and that he or she would not have been injured had the third party not acted negligently. Our construction injury lawyers are here to help you in this process.

Third-party claims can be filed simultaneously with a workers’ compensation claim. These claims provide an opportunity to recover compensation that is not offered in a workers’ compensation claim, such as pain and suffering.

Wrongful Death Claim

Construction accidents are extremely dangerous and many times result in death. If you have lost a loved one in a construction accident, you may be entitled to file a wrongful death claim seeking additional compensation, and the Zanes Law Phoenix construction accident lawyers are here to fight for you.

Product Liability Claim

If a machine or piece of equipment at a construction site is defective or malfunctions and severely injures or kills an individual, it may be possible to bring a product liability claim against the designer or manufacturer of the product.

Our Phoenix construction accident lawyers will help you to evaluate your options if you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a construction site accident. Simply call the Zanes Law construction injury lawyers in Phoenix for a free consultation.

What to Do After You’ve Suffered in a Serious Construction Accident

ASLA awards_logo3In these complicated situations following an injury, it can be extremely difficult for an employee to figure out what to do next. Since construction accident injuries are some of the most common across the United States and since there are so many hazards present on a typical construction site, it is important to realize your rights and responsibilities after suffering in such an accident.

Heavy machinery, caustic chemicals, moving obstacles, compressed gasses, and working at heights can all give rise to injuries if safety is not made a top priority. While workers’ compensation insurance may help to provide you with some basic benefits after you have been injured on a job, you may be eligible for other forms of compensation depending on the specifics of your accident. It’s important to identify an experienced Phoenix construction accident lawyer as soon as possible after the injury has occurred.

Getting Support for Compensation After a Construction Injury

A Phoenix construction site accident lawyer is a powerful advocate for you when you feel as though you have many challenges ahead. When your working ability and your livelihood is cut short because of a critical injury or because you have lost a family member, you need a lawyer who has legal knowledge as well as compassion. Your attorney should be dedicated to getting to know you and working towards the best possible outcome. Furthermore, he or she will likely launch an investigation immediately to identify all potentially liable parties.

Once you know who could be held accountable in an injury claim, you’re in a better position to move forward with legal action.

How to Find the Right Construction Site Accident Lawyer

Extensive experience in wrongful death and serious injury cases in Arizona is a must-have in the Phoenix construction injury lawyers that you choose. These tough cases can present significant obstacles for you and your loved ones. But when you have the right attorney, he can give you a great deal of peace of mind and confidence about your future. If necessary, a team of experts will be brought together to evaluate the specifics of your accident and to determine who is responsible.

If defective equipment caused the accident, such as a crane, defected scaffolding or a pulley device, a product liability case may need to be filed as soon as possible. The specifics of your individual accident will dictate the type of compensation to which you may be entitled. It may be difficult to figure out what is truly in your best interests at the outset of your case, but thankfully, hiring the right Phoenix construction site accident lawyer will assist you with determining what is in your best interests. In an initial consultation, you will get a better understanding of how the attorney works and how he or she can help you with a claim.

Despite the fact that construction workers face dangerous working conditions every day, far too many fatal construction accidents and serious injuries occur directly as a result of the negligence of business owners, subcontractors and contractors. No one anticipates getting hurt on the job, but it has the potential to turn their life upside down in just a matter of moments. Fighting for these victims is why each construction site accident lawyer at Zanes Law takes these challenging cases.
