Workers' compensation and the Industrial Commission of Arizona

When an Arizona worker is hurt while on the job it can be a significant blow to their financial health as well as their physical health. Illness and injury often keep workers out of their jobs and prevent them from earning their paychecks. An injury or illness can make a worker feel physically helpless and unable to support his family all at the same time.

Construction works falls to his death in Phoenix

Despite improvements over time, and better safety measures, construction remains one of the most dangerous jobs. Work accidents are not uncommon, and often involve falls, crush injuries or other types of serious accidents. These kinds of workplace injuries not only result in serious physical limitations but also create financial concerns when an injured worker is unable to work for a substantial period of time. In the worst cases, a worker is killed while on the job, which can cause extreme financial hardship for his or her family.

Getting hurt at work is a serious matter

Despite strict regulations that mandate safety standards for many United States industries, American workers get hurt in droves every year. Some of those injured workers live right here in Phoenix and each day they work to cope with the harms they sustained while trying to earn their livings. From serious, life-threatening workplace accidents to minor incidents that leave workers wondering if they should report their ailments, on-the-job injuries affect workers across many types of jobs.

Almost any job that a Phoenix resident may have could involve hazards to some degree. While the occupational hazards associated with some high-risk fields of employment may present more serious threats to workers in those jobs than workers in other fields, no worker should suffer harm while doing his job. When employees suffer injuries in the course of their employment, the causes of those workplace accidents sometimes point back to negligence on the part of the workers' employers.

Legal help after a construction accident in Phoenix

Construction work in Phoenix and across the state is a form of employment that many people do to earn a living. It's a necessary job that benefits the community and provides a service both publicly and privately. While a construction worker is generally well trained and most employers take care to make certain their work areas are safe, a construction accident is sometimes unavoidable. It might be due to carelessness on the part of the employer, circumstances or a mistake made by the workers. Regardless, our law firm understands the importance of knowing what to do after an accident occurs.
