According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 1 in 10 construction workers are injured on the job each year. Construction accidents are varied and can include falls from scaffolding or ladders, heavy machinery accidents, eye or ear injuries, fires, and more.

When Can You File a Third-Party Work Injury Claim?

While the construction industry is heavily regulated to ensure worker safety, these rules are not always followed. In other instances, workers and supervisors may be fully adhering to OSHA regulations, but defective equipment still leads to injuries. It is mandatory for most construction companies to carry workers’ compensation insurance for on-the-job injuries, but workers’ compensation does not always cover the full cost of damages after an accident.

In order to file a third party claim, you must show that negligence led to your accident. Under Arizona state laws, construction employers are typically protected from lawsuits by employees in the event of an accident. However, you may still be able to take legal action against another negligent party.

A third party claim may be filed against any of the following parties, if they are shown to have acted negligently and that this negligence led to your injuries:

  • The general contractor
  • Subcontractors
  • Equipment manufacturers
  • Others involved in the accident

If you are interested in filling a claim against a third party, it’s wise to discuss your options with an experienced construction accident attorney in Phoenix who can help you determine the best course of action. At Montoya, Lucero & Pastor, P.A., we have helped numerous injured individuals and their families secure the compensation they needed to assist with the cost of medical bills, lost wages, and more.
