In the aftermath of a construction accident when a loved one has been injured or killed, the last thing on families’ mind is contacting an experienced Tuscon construction accident lawyer. However, in such cases, the hours and days following the accident are crucially important as the victim’s family may be pressured to sign documentation that they do not fully understand. These documents often limit their options for compensation from those responsible for the accident. In many cases, construction accidents occur due to lax safety measures. If you or a family member is injured or killed in a construction site accident, contact the Arizona personal injury law firm of Breyer Law Offices P.C.
A 45-year-old worker at a road construction site was killed recently after he was hit by a pivoting crane. Law enforcement officials investigating the accident say that the man was part of a work crew building an overpass over a set of railroad tracks when a crane lifting a load of concrete pivoted and hit the man. The crane accident took place around 10 in the morning and the worker died of his injuries after being taken to the hospital, according to this article.
