Arizona workers’ compensation is a form of protection provided by employers and guaranteed by Arizona law for almost all employees. Arizona workers’ compensation insurance is purchased by employers to cover employees in case they get injured while performing work tasks. The benefits paid out by the insurance company in the event of an injury will include payment of medical bills and lost wages.
When a worker experiences any type of job-related injury, he may make a claim under Arizona workers’ compensation. This includes injuries that happen off-the-job site if the worker was performing required work. Workers may also make a workers’ compensation claim for things like toxic exposure at work or for repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel that may develop as a result of performing work.
Workers’ comp cases are not based on the negligence of an employer. This means any worker who suffers a job-related injury should be eligible for benefits. If you believe you are entitled to workers’ comp benefits and that your claim has been unfairly denied, you should contact an experienced Arizona workers’ compensation attorney at Schiffman Law Office, P.C. for advice at (602) 235-0539.
