What Types of Industrial Accidents Warrant an Arizona Claim?
There are situations that are outside of a worker’s control which can cause them harm. Instances where negligence by another party occurs and a worker is hurt or when equipment is not maintained and it then malfunctions and inflicts harm on a worker happen all the time. The following industrial accidents are most frequently associated with serious injuries:
- Falling accidents
- Equipment malfunction
- Accidents where body parts are crushed
- Objects that fall onto a person
- Accidents that sever limbs from the body or severely lacerate them
- Trucking accidents
- Fires accidents and burns
Based on the seriousness of your accident, your attorney can determine a fair settlement amount. There are many details that are critically important for your attorney to calculate the right number. Those include how bad your injuries were, type of medical treatment you required, how long you were out of work because of your injuries, if you will no longer be able to return to your job because your injuries are so significant, your pain and suffering, as well as the emotional toll your incident put you through will all be considered. Accidents that have caused permanent damage and have resulted in you being unable to work or to live life with the quality you had before your accident, are going to be awarded higher compensation amounts.
