- 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.

Sophia H is very helpful.
Definitely recommend! Awesome
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
