Phoenix Construction Accident Lawyer

Unlike many other occupations in Phoenix, construction workers face hazards on the job site every day. Although the construction industry is well-regulated to protect workers and lawful visitors, there are still thousands of accidents annually due to negligence. In 2020, over 165,000 construction accidents resulted in injuries in private construction industries and over 1,000 fatalities. If you have been injured in a construction accident, speak with an experienced Phoenix construction accident attorney to understand your best legal options. 

Workers’ compensation may cover medical expenses and a portion of your lost wages. However, there are cases where it may be in your best interest to seek a third-party claim against the liable party that caused your accident to recover the full extent of the compensation you deserve. At Feller & Wendt, we can assess your construction accident claim and guide you through the legal process so you can focus on recovery

How a Construction Accident Lawyer Can Help Your Claim 

Construction accidents can cause devastating injuries that result in economic and non-economic losses for victims. In the aftermath, it may be challenging to focus on healing when you are burdened with medical expenses, lost wages from time off work, and other damages.

Pursuing a claim can be complex without an experienced Phoenix construction accident lawyer at Feller & Wendt on your side. We are committed to providing personalized attention from initial consultation to resolution, so you can rest assured that we are fighting for you every step of the way. 

We can help increase the chances of success in a construction accident claim in the following ways: 

  • Investigating the accident to determine who caused or contributed to your accident. This may include reviewing the construction plans, inspecting the worksite, interviewing witnesses, and consulting with field experts
  • Identifying liability as one or numerous parties may be responsible for the accident, including the subcontractors, equipment manufacturers, or property owners
  • Ensuring all parties involved are compliant with Arizona laws and regulations, as failure to follow safety protocols can lead to liability 
  • Negotiating with insurance companies that may try to minimize their payout or deny or claim altogether
  • Representing you in court in instances that a favorable outcome can’t be obtained outside of the courtroom 

A highly experienced Phoenix construction accident attorney can help you navigate the complex legal process and ensure you recover the maximum compensation you deserve for injuries and accident-related losses.

Types of Construction Accidents We Handle 

Construction sites are inherently dangerous, and accidents can occur despite the best efforts of workers to maintain a safe work environment. When construction accidents happen, it may not always be the fault of the worker or employer but rather the negligence of a third party. The following are the types of construction accidents we handle: 

  • Falls: Falls are one of the most common types of construction accidents and can occur from heights such as ladders, scaffolding, or roofs. 
  • Struck by objects: Workers may be struck by falling objects or debris, such as tools, construction materials, or equipment.
  • Caught in/between: Workers may become caught in or between objects due to the negligence of another party operating heavy machinery, equipment malfunction, or being pinned between heavy materials. 
  • Electrical accidents: Workers may be electrocuted or suffer other electrical injuries due to contact with exposed wiring or live electrical components. 
  • Fire and explosions: Construction sites may contain flammable materials or hazardous chemicals that can cause fire and explosions if handled negligently or if there is a lack of proper training. 
  • Toxic exposure: Workers may be exposed to toxic chemicals, such as asbestos or lead, which can cause long-term health effects and injuries. 

Employers, workers, and site managers/owners must take all necessary precautions to prevent construction accidents and ensure a safe work environment. This may include properly training employees, providing protective gear, and conducting regular safety inspections and maintenance on construction equipment.

Liability in a Construction Accident 

In a workers’ compensation claim, you may recover benefits regardless of fault for the construction accident. However, if you sustained injuries due to third-party negligence, workers’ compensation may not cover the extent of the economic and non-economic losses you have suffered. 

The following parties may be liable for a construction accident in a third-party claim: 

  • Contractor or subcontractor 
  • Equipment company or manufacturer 
  • Property owners or site managers 

We understand that recovering compensation may be challenging. Employers and insurance companies may attempt to diminish the compensation you deserve. At Feller & Wendt, we fight to protect your legal rights and pursue a third-party claim on your behalf to obtain compensation beyond what would be available through a workers’ compensation claim if necessary.
