ANCHORAGE CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS GET VICTIMS JUSTICE

ALASKA WORK SITE INJURY LAWYERS GET YOU THE COMPENSATION YOU DESERVE

Construction sites are notoriously dangerous workplaces. In fact, one out of five worker deaths in the United States
involve construction workers. Every ladder, walkway, platform or rail has potential to turn into a slip or a fall.
The Anchorage work injury lawyers at Phillip Paul Weidner and Associates A Professional Corporation work hard to
help injured construction workers and their families hold negligent employers accountable.

THE MOST COMMON DANGERS ON ANCHORAGE WORK SITES

Nearly every item, tool or machine on a construction site is capable of causing injury. Workers routinely experience
injuries due to falls, falling objects, crushing and exposure to dangerous materials. The most common causes of work
site deaths are falls, falling and moving objects, electrocutions and workers getting caught or stuck in-between
surfaces. Our attorneys work to get injured workers and their families justice regardless of the cause of the
accident.

UNDERSTANDING COMPENSATION IN CONSTRUCTION INJURY CASES

Those who have been hurt on Alaska work sites will have different legal rights and remedies depending on the cause
of their injury. Depending on who is responsible for the actions or conditions that caused your injury, our
attorneys will either be able to help you file a workers’ compensation claim or bring a third-party claim against a
negligent party.

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION IN ALASKA WORK SITE ACCIDENT CLAIMS

Workers’ compensation is the standard way for injured workers to get their medical bills and other costs paid.
Although it applies slightly differently in each state, it generally works by covering medical bills and partial
wages for the duration of the time that you are injured. It is available to those who have been injured on the job
and is generally the only way workers can bring a claim against their employers for injuries. Workers’ compensation
is a no-fault system, meaning that a worker can recover whether their employer was negligent or not. There may be
limits on which doctors you can visit, how much you can recover per week and the duration of payments. Our Anchorage
workman’s comp attorneys strive to get injured construction workers justice and the benefits they are entitled to
under Alaska law.

BRINGING THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS TO HELP INJURED WORKERS GET COMPENSATION

While the law prevents workers from suing their own employer, it does not prevent lawsuits against other people or
companies on a construction site. Workers are frequently able to bring negligence claims against other contractors,
subcontractors and property owners. Our lawyers will work with you to bring a negligence claim and hold the person
or company responsible for your injury liable for their negligence.

HELPING FAMILIES OF CONSTRUCTION WORKERS GET JUSTICE AFTER THE DEATH OF A LOVED ONE

When a construction accident is fatal, our attorneys help families get justice. If the accident was the fault of
your loved one’s employer or an accident with no one at fault, you may be entitled to benefits under workers’
compensation laws. If another contractor or entity was responsible for your relative’s death, we will assist your
family in bringing a wrongful death lawsuit and seeking compensation.
