WINNING CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS CLAIMS
It is important to obtain attorney representation as soon as possible after construction accidents. Evidence crucial to a case often disappears from the construction site. Witnesses disappear or become reluctant to speak-up or become involved. For these reasons, among others, it is important that your attorneys take steps to preserve evidence and interview witnesses while the event is fresh. In some instances, it is possible to get OSHA investigators involved immediately who help to preserve the critical evidence.
The truth of the matter is that very few serious construction accidents settle without filing a lawsuit and conducting discovery. Alex & Saavedra has the experience and know-how to bring together a team of experts, including construction experts, safety experts, OSHA experts, physicians, vocational rehabilitation specialists and economists. It is only after the insurance company is certain that your case is well-prepared for trial that they are motivated to settle.
SCAFFOLDING ACCIDENTS AND INJURIES FROM FALLS
Scaffolding accidents and falls from heights are common causes of serious injuries on construction sites. OSHA regulations, industry custom and practices and Arizona Case Law establish safety standards for erecting, inspecting and maintaining scaffolds. These regulations also provide standards for protection against falls for workers who are working at certain heights. Alex & Saavedra has 27 years of construction expertise and is current on safety standards and Arizona’s construction laws.
WORKERS’ COMPENSATION AND THIRD PARTY CLAIMS
If you are injured in a construction accident, you are probably entitled to workers compensation benefits. Additionally, you may have a claim against a third-party for example, the general contractor, property owner, subcontractor, or equipment manufacturer that is at fault for your injuries. Your attorney should explain your options under workers’ compensation and third-party claims.
When you are seriously injured in a construction accident, your attorney should assist you in exploring and determining the best method for obtaining payment of medical expenses (past and future), recovery of lost wages as well as compensation for pain and suffering (past and future)—and for permanent injuries, disfigurement and loss of life’s enjoyment.
