A construction job site can be dangerous. Even with advanced training and experience, accidents can, and still do, happen.
These are a few common construction site accidents we handle:
- Electrocution/electric shock
- Severe burns
- Heavy machinery accidents
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Overheating and overexertion
The injuries from a construction accident are often severe. You may be left with broken bones, head or neck injuries, a traumatic brain injury, paralysis, and even death.
Zanes Law may be able to help you collect the compensation you need to move on after the loss of a loved one. If your loved one was killed in a construction accident, you may be eligible for compensation to cover their funeral expenses and lost wages.
It is important that we determine who is liable for a construction accident:
- Individual contractors and subcontractors
- Product manufacturers
- Training professionals
- Property owners
It is not always easy to determine who is liable when a construction accident happens. Our team will immediately begin collecting the necessary evidence to establish liability.
It is important to have legal representation that you can trust on your side. Insurance companies may attempt to limit liability in order to avoid paying you. Having your own legal team that protects your legal rights helps ensure that you are able to collect the compensation that you deserve.
It is normal to have a lot of questions following a construction accident. Our construction accident lawyers are ready to answer your questions with a free consultation. We can come to you in the hospital or your home if necessary.
We will also never charge you anything unless we are able to collect compensation on your behalf. Call today for your free consultation. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week: (866) 499-8989.
Collect Necessary Evidence
Our legal team will track down the necessary evidence to determine liability. We will also gather documents that attest to the impact of the accident on your life. These are just a few of the documents that we will collect on your behalf:
- Medical records
- Witness statements
- Employee records
- Expert witness statements
- Training manuals
Navigate Your Legal Case
There are many steps involved in a construction accident case. Determining which party is at fault will help us decide the best legal route to take. For example, if your employer caused your accident, you are likely eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.
However, if another party is to blame or your employer was not carrying workers’ compensation at the time of the accident, then we may need to seek compensation through a third-party claim.
Depending on the legal route that we take, there are specific time limits and requirements that we may need to follow. In order to file a workers’ compensation claim, we need to notify the employer within a set period of time. Additionally, there are time limits for filing your paperwork.
If a third-party lawsuit makes sense to your case, then we must file your case within two years from the date of the accident. This time limit can come fast and it takes time to collect information to build your case. It may also be more difficult to rely on witness statements if we wait too long to file. It is crucial that you discuss your case with a construction accident lawyer as soon as possible.
Manage All Communications
You may receive constant communication from the other legal team, workers’ compensation representatives, or insurance adjusters. Our injury lawyers will manage all communications for you, allowing you to focus on your recovery.
Construction accidents can get expensive. By the time you seek medical care and take time off work to recover, you may already be in a difficult financial situation. Additionally, construction injuries can require ongoing medical care and may also prevent you from returning to the same line of work.
We will consider all the ways in which the construction accident has and will impact your life. We will include the following costs when calculating your damages:
- Medical bills (current and future)
- Property damage
- Lost wages and work benefits
- Diminished earning capacity
- Temporary transportation
- Childcare costs
- Pain and suffering
Zanes Law understands the importance of non-economic costs to your case. The cost of pain and suffering can sometimes be more impactful to your life than the economic costs.
You never expect to suffer an injury at work. Additionally, it is also not always clear how to recover compensation from a work-related accident. The legal team at Zanes Law is here to help you manage every aspect of your South Tucson construction accident case. We do everything from A to Z.
