Compensation for families after fatal construction accidents

For Arizona construction workers injured on job sites, workers' compensation can mean one less thing to worry about while they recover from their injuries. Unfortunately, sometimes construction accidents prove fatal, such as in a recent incident in another state. Tragically, the accident resulted in the death of a construction worker from a fall.

Workers' comp important for employees injured in work accidents

Arizona employers have a responsibility to make the workplace as safe and free from potential hazards as possible. In fact, a federal agency known as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration investigates work accidents to figure out what happened and whether the employer violated any safety guidelines. Moreover, injured workers are typically entitled to workers' compensation benefits to cover medical expenses and income lost while recovering. The surviving family members of a worker killed on-the-job are likewise entitled to survivor' benefits through the same state-regulated insurance system.

New tool hopes to assess gradual injuries before they begin

Sometimes, accidents at Arizona job sites happen in an instant. Often, though, office workers experience more gradual injuries, issues that build up over time after lots of repetitive movement or strain. University researchers have come up with what they hope will be a useful tool to quickly and easily determine stress damage caused by computer programs.

Arizona families eligible for workers' comp after work accidents

Luckily, on-the-job injuries at Arizona worksites are often minor. Even workers who are seriously injured are usually able to get the medical care or workers' compensation benefits they need in order to recuperate and get back on the job. Tragically, though, some work accidents are fatal.
