An employee who is hurt on the job is usually compensated through workers’ comp, if the employer has workers’ comp insurance. However, if there are other parties that contributed to the accident by their negligence, the worker could stand to receive financial compensation from them as well.
In one recent case, David Azizi represented a man in that very situation:
David’s client received payment for his injuries from his employer through workers’ comp, but because other companies contributed to his accident through their carelessness or recklessness, David was able to win a $6.1 million settlement that covered past and anticipated medical expenses, along with other related costs.
(It’s important to note that in the event an employer does not have workers’ comp insurance, and that employer’s negligence resulted in an employee’s injuries, the employee does have the ability by law to pursue a lawsuit against the employer.)

Examples of Job Site and Construction Accident Cases an Injury Lawyer Commonly Handles
David has seen many of these cases over the years. Examples include:
- Forklift accidents, including the incident discussed above
- Commercial trucking accidents, whether from operating a vehicle or loading and unloading cargo
- Exposure to hazardous chemicals or materials
- Burns, either from chemicals, heat or fire
- Electrocution from faulty wiring
- Malfunctioning equipment

- Miscellaneous violations of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations
Sadly, many of these job and construction site accidents result in very serious injuries. Tragically, some are fatal.
Construction Accident Expenses a Victim Might Face

- Outpatient follow-up visits
- Physical therapy
- Past and future lost wages due to the accident
- Funds needed for trauma counseling
- Funds needed for emotional relief for the worker and his or her family
