Using heavy equipment is part of the job on an Arizona construction site. Forklifts, bulldozers, cranes, and other pieces of heavy equipment, are commonplace. However, when not operated properly, they can lead to accidents and serious injury on the construction site. In many cases, these accidents are the result of improper use or recklessness, and as a result, preventable.
When Tucson machinery construction accidents do occur, many injured people don’t know where to turn. Should they hire a personal injury attorney with experience in construction site accidents, particularly those involving improper use of heavy equipment?
Our advice is to at least consult with an injury attorney, especially if negligence is involved. An experienced attorney will know right off the bat which factors to look at to determine whether or not the claim is valid. In some cases, due to the exclusive remedy law, an injured person cannot file a personal injury claim; they can only make a workers’ compensation claim. But in other circumstances, the injured person may be able to recover damages by filing a personal injury claim.
