Construction Site Accident Liability
Property Damage & Personal Injury Defense for Construction Accidents
Righi Fitch Law Group specializes in the defense of contractors, construction companies, home-builders, businesses, and property owners in complex cases involving construction site accidents. What determines liability for a construction site accident?
Construction site accident liability may result from serious personal injuries, death or property damage. These cases require a working knowledge of the intricacies of applicable industrial codes, labor laws, and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations.
No two job-site accidents are alike. It takes a careful investigation and an individualized approach to determine what the most effective strategy, will yield the best results, and that this is where we excel. The lawyers at Righi Fitch have handled hundreds of construction-site injury cases of all shapes and sizes.
Having tried many job-site injury cases to juries throughout the State of Arizona, we know how to evaluate them. This gives us the unique ability to advise our clients on whether a case should resolve, and for what amount, shortly after referral of the case, and most often before engaging in expensive discovery.
About 98% of the time, we are able to point personal injury cases toward early resolution, which saves our clients thousands of dollars that would otherwise be spent litigating. In those rare situations where a case cannot be resolved after a reasonable offer is made, we provide our clients with the tactical advantage of unmatched trial experience.
In over 90% of the cases we have tried, we have brought in jury verdicts lower than pre-trial offers made, entitling our clients to cost and fee sanctions as the prevailing party.
