As the name implies, workers’ compensation is designed to protect individuals that are injured at their place of employment. These benefits cover you while you are carrying out your responsibilities at work.

 

Workers’ compensation claims are usually covered by an insurance policy that your employer is legally required to maintain. You do not have to pay for workers’ compensation coverage yourself if you work for someone else or a business.

 

Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to cover a variety of on-the-job injury-related expenses, including:

 

  • Lost wages
  • Death benefits
  • Medical care and treatments, including surgery and rehabilitation

 

Many workers worry that they will not be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits if they were at fault for their own injuries. Fortunately, Arizona is a no-fault state, which means that any employee that is injured on the job is eligible to receive benefits, no matter how the injury occurred.

 

If you would like to discuss the details of your claim with a knowledgeable workers’ compensation expert, contact Arizona Injury Law Group. We provide injured workers with a free consultation so that they can get the information they need when it matters most!

In a perfect world, every employer would honor legitimate workers’ compensation claims without question. Many employers actually strive to take proper care of their employees and carry adequate insurance coverage for work-related injuries. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.

 

In some instances, employers or their insurance companies mistreat injured workers. Even worse, the insurance companies may attempt to delay your ability to receive adequate care and benefits. These unscrupulous providers often use several tactics, which may include:

 

  • Delaying payments to medical providers
  • Requesting excessive amounts of documentation
  • Denying claims without an investigation

 

In some cases, employers have even been known to withhold key details regarding your injury or your employment with the intent of having your claims denied.

 

While we certainly hope that you do not work for such an employer, you should always be proactive about protecting your rights. The Arizona Injury Law Group can help you to do just that.
Our Phoenix workers’ compensation injury attorneys will hold your employer accountable to ensure that they do not hinder your ability to receive benefits.

Workplace accidents should always be taken seriously, even if you believe that your injuries are minor. If you are injured on the job, your first step should always be to seek emergency attention, if necessary, and then notify your employer about the incident. Whatever you do, take prompt action, no matter how minor the injury may seem.

 

Many “loyal” employees go home hoping that they will feel better the following day. This is a serious mistake, especially if you have an employer that is willing to mistreat their employees. If you attempt to report the incident the following day, your employer may try to avoid taking responsibility for the accident.

 

Seek medical attention, too. In the course of your treatment, make sure to get copies of all pertinent documents. This includes paperwork regarding your diagnosis, treatment recommendations, prescriptions, and any X-rays or other diagnostic scans that are taken.

 

Make sure to let your providers know that you are receiving care as part of a workers’ compensation claim so that they do not bill your private insurance.

 

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Find out whether the physician has cleared you to return to work. If they do, ask them whether you have any limitations that you should be mindful of or whether you can return to normal duty.

 

Be honest about what sort of responsibilities that you have at your place of employment. For instance, are you frequently required to lift heavy objects like bags of concrete? Medical staff cannot properly treat you or provide guidance on limitations if they do not have a true understanding of your work requirements.

 

Once you have addressed immediate medical concerns, it is time to officially file a claim. In the state of Arizona, you have up to one year to do so. However, it is always best to file your claim as soon as possible.

 

There are two ways to file your claim. You can complete a Worker’s Report of Injury form. The second option is to fill out a Worker’s and Physician’s Report of Injury. These forms are available online. Many employers also keep these forms on hand in the event of a workplace injury.

 

If you need assistance filing your claim or would like additional guidance on a specific workplace accident, contact the Arizona Injury Law Group. You can reach us at 480-300-7273 or fill out a contact form on our site.

The state of Arizona and the city of Phoenix in particular have a high concentration of immigrant workers. Sadly, many of these workers mistakenly believe that their immigration status will hinder their ability to file workers’ compensation claims. Fortunately, this is not the case.

 

Arizona is a no-fault state when it comes to workers’ compensation. This means that any injured worker has the ability to file a claim when they suffer a work-related injury. However, immigrant workers will face a few additional hurdles when seeking benefits under workers’ compensation laws.

 

The Arizona Injury Law Group believes that every worker should have access to benefits when they are injured on the job. With this in mind, we also handle workers’ compensation cases for those who are “undocumented.” We guide all of our clients regardless of their immigration status through the state’s legal system and help them to receive proper care in their time of need.

 

If you are an immigrant worker and have been injured on the job, contact the Arizona Injury Law Group. We will discuss your case and provide you with invaluable legal guidance during this trying time.

Due to its surging population and growing popularity, the bustling metropolis of Phoenix has no shortage of construction projects that are underway at any given time. While this construction is great for the local economy, working on active build sites is extremely dangerous.

 

As you might expect, construction work produces an extremely high number of workers’ compensation claims. There are many risks involved in construction work.
Some common sources of injuries on construction sites stem from:

 

  • Operating heavy equipment
  • Working at high elevations
  • Unsafe working conditions
  • Inadequate training or oversight

 

While Arizona is a no-fault state, construction-related workers’ compensation claims are often extremely complex. Insurance companies may look for excuses to avoid paying out on these claims. For instance, the presence of third-party contractors on your job site can make it difficult to file a claim.

 

If you want to protect your rights and expedite the process of filing a construction injury claim in Phoenix, the Arizona Injury Law Group is here to help. We have an intricate understanding of the workers’ compensation claims process. We will meet the insurance companies head-on and fight for your rights at the negotiating table, and if necessary, in the courtroom!

  • Head trauma and brain damage
  • Back or spinal cord injuries

If you would like to discuss the details of your case and start the process of filing a claim, call our office at 480-300-7273. All clients are eligible for a free consultation and most cases do not require a retainer.

How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?

 

In the state of Arizona, injured workers have up to one year to file a workers’ compensation claim. In most cases after this time has elapsed, you will barred from receiving benefits.

 

Will Workers’ Compensation Pay Me a Full Salary?

 

No, Arizona workers’ compensation benefits pay two-thirds of your gross salary. However, the payout cannot exceed limitations set by the Arizona legislature.

 

How Long Do Benefits Last?

 

Generally, workers’ compensation benefits are paid out until you make a full recovery and return to normal duties at work. If you suffer from a permanent disability, then you will likely be awarded lifetime benefits.

 

Can I Be Fired for Filing a Claim?

 

No, injured workers are protected by the Arizona Employment Protection Act. This prevents employers from taking negative action against workers based on the filing of a workers’ comp claim. The AEPA also provides other protections that our attorneys can advise you about.

If you or a loved one have suffered from a workplace injury, then you need to act fast! Do not delay in taking action and risk losing out on workers’ compensation benefits.
