Experienced Phoenix Construction Accident Attorneys
What to expect after an accident on a construction site
Accidents are common occurrences on construction sites, especially when the site supervisor does not implement proper safety protocols. A construction accident lawyer at the Lewis and Pokora law firm in Phoenix may be able to help if you were injured because aisles and walkways were full of hazards; tools were not properly secured and suspended when not in use; cable lines were defective; electricians made mistakes when installing outlets; dangerous substances were used during construction without providing the workers with proper protective gear; or any other appropriate safety precaution was not taken to prevent a foreseeable accident. Documenting such evidence may be vital to securing your right to compensation.

Construction accident clients
Legal services from our Phoenix injury lawyers are essential for the following individuals injured at construction sites:
- Construction site workers. Your right to compensation may depend in part on your employment status. If you are an employee of the developer, general contractor or subcontractor, you may be entitled to workers compensation benefits after a construction site accident. However, if you are an independent contractor, your right to compensation may depend on either establishing a basis for workers compensation benefits or suing the contractor. An experienced construction accident attorney in Phoenix from our firm can help you take the steps necessary to secure coverage.

If you own a neighboring property that sustains damage as a result of a construction project or accident, or if you realize years after a construction project that your family has been exposed to a toxic substance, you need a Phoenix construction accident attorney from Lewis and Pokora to represent you in the upcoming legal battle for monetary recovery.
