- Work Site Accidents Caused by Third Party Workers
There are many dangerous occupations that exist in the United States, but few if any involve more risk than construction work. Construction sites are areas where any number of things can go wrong at any time, and when they do people who are injured are often unsure of where to turn. Anyone who has been harmed by a third party worker at a construction site needs to seek the immediate help of experienced Phoenix construction accident lawyers, and below is an explanation of this third party worker situation and the legal rights involved.
Arizona Construction Site Accidents – Third Party Workers
A third party worker at a construction site in Arizona can be difficult to define. Basically, a third party worker is someone who does not work for the main construction company, contractor or any of the hired sub-contractors who are on the site every day performing the same functions. Generally, third party workers can be those who drive delivery trucks, dump trucks or anyone else who appears on the construction site on either a one-time basis or someone who is not on the construction site regularly. This is an important distinction because of the area of Arizona law that governs situations where someone is injured.
Third Party Liability in Arizona Construction Site Accidents
Usually, when someone is injured on a construction site by someone else who also works there regularly and is not considered a third party, the injured worker would need to pursue his or her legal rights by way of Arizona worker’s compensation law. These laws provide benefits to those who are unable to work, but the amount of benefits involved is set out by statute and comes with limits on amounts and duration. When a construction worker is injured by a third party, it provides that injured person with an opportunity to pursue his or her legal rights by way of an Arizona personal injury lawsuit, and these lawsuits can bring more compensation to an injured worker than worker’s compensation benefits, including damages compensation for medical costs, lost income and pain and suffering.

Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
Phillips law group is the best around!
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
