When you are injured on the job and need help, we have a list of useful links and apps to help you. Start at the Industrial Commission of Arizona (ICA) and click on each of the bolded underlined links for the information you need.
When you reached this website, you will see updated links to the information you may need, including the Worker’s Report of Injury Form. Follow the instructions on this page to fill out the form and have it sent in. The first link is a system Adobe-based document you can fill out online but be sure to print a copy before you enter it into the system.
The other link on this page is a similar pdf document which you can download and edit at home.

The ICA website contains every link to forms you could need during your claim period.
This FindLaw website page gives you an at-a-glance overview of what you are entitled to as a worker in Arizona when you are injured on the job. Each statement overview provides a link to a statute of the Arizona Compensation Laws in place.
Phone Applications (Apps)
If you love to research legal topics on your phone, you can search for apps on Google Play for Android mobile phones or on the Apple store for iOS phones. Do a search for Arizona legislative laws or Arizona Statutes to see what pulls up. Choose only those apps that have a rating of at least 4.0 or more. Read reviews to see what users are saying about the apps and check if you will need to pay an annual fee for updates to state laws.
A worker’s compensation attorney can provide up-to-date information on the latest legislation implemented as of January 31st of each year, once revised and new laws go into effect. You can also check on current bills ongoing in the Arizona State Legislature here if you like to keep up with what your state legislature is doing.

You may think that if your claim was denied, that you have no chance of getting help. It is important that you try again, instead of giving up. Your first step is to quickly act by filing a Request for Hearing form. This is important, especially if you have new evidence you can present that positively impacts your case. An experienced worker’s compensation attorney can help you present your best case to the judge.
