Construction sites are among the most dangerous places to work, and often workers suffer severe injuries on the job site. This often can be due to the improper use or maintenance of scaffolding, which can contribute directly to an injury or even death for someone on the job site.
Most constructions workers know that they have a right to file a workers’ compensation claim in Arizona. In Arizona cases where injuries have occurred on construction sites due to scaffolding issues, a claim can be made in addition to a workers’ compensation claim that can benefit the worker and their family. Many workers do not realize that they may also have the right to file a personal injury claim in addition to the workers’ compensation claim.
Determining whether a worker has the right to file a claim for an injury that occurred due to a scaffolding issue often requires the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney that is knowledgeable about construction site injuries.
