Phoenix Construction Accident Attorney
Construction accidents can alter the course of a person’s life in the flash of an eye. They routinely cause serious injuries that forever impact victims and their families, and sometimes even result in death. When you are faced with a construction accident, you will need the help of an Mesa construction accident lawyer to assist you in receiving the compensation you deserve. More often than not, victims of construction accidents are construction workers themselves. And because they rely on good health for their livelihood, injured construction workers suffer repercussions far beyond pain and suffering. A serious construction accident can take away from victims their very ability to provide for their family.
Construction sites are somewhat more dangerous than other workplaces. Worker error, unsafe conditions and inadequate training all give rise to construction accidents. Moreover, employers sometimes place high expectations on workers, which can lead to fatigue, overexertion and ultimately injury. Where victims of construction accidents are not themselves to blame, they deserve to be compensated as fully as possible.
While Arizona is a workers’ compensation state, often times there are third parties who are responsible for the injury. An experienced Arizona construction accident attorney can help you navigate through these complex issues.
What are OSHA Standards?
Congress passed the Occupational Safety and Health Act (“OSHA”) to protect employers. It aims to keep all workplaces free from safety hazards, and ensure that employees are properly and adequately trained to perform their job. The inherently dangerous nature of construction sites makes OSHA a particularly relevant piece of legislation for employees of construction firms.
OSHA standards cover a vast range of issues relevant to construction companies. Among other things, OSHA standards require that dangerous materials be dealt with properly, that companies regularly maintain their equipment, and that proper first aid and protective equipment is made readily available. Employees that question whether the company for which they work is abiding by OSHA standards have a legal right to request an OSHA inspection.
Employees should be able to request an OSHA inspection or file an OSHA complaint without fear of retaliation from their employer. Employees who are disciplined or terminated for dealing with OSHA may have grounds to bring legal action against their employer. In this even, it is important to hire a Mesa construction accident attorney who is well versed in this area.
