Information is Key to Locating the Best Workers Compensation Attorneys

You Should Know Your Rights

Most people injured on the job have one priority: get better and back to work. Sadly, for many, this is not possible. Understand your rights and, if necessary, fight for them. Arizona’s workers’ compensation system was adopted to place the burden on business, rather than individuals or society as a whole, for injuries sustained by their employees. Employers and their insurance carriers are required to pay for an injured worker’s medical treatment and related medical expenses when an injury is suffered because of the employee’s job.

Hire an Excellent Lawyer to Protect Your Rights

Sometimes claims are denied because of the employer’s objection or because the insurance carrier believes it can limit benefits based upon the opinion of a doctor hired by the employer or it. Workers’ compensation attorneys often see the insurance company hiring doctors whose opinions are pretty much a foregone conclusion. You have the right to hire a lawyer to protect your rights. Hiring a certified specialist in workers’ compensation might make the difference between obtaining or losing lifetime benefits. A list of State Bar of Arizona Workers’ Compensation attorneys is available from the State Bar of Arizona at www.azbar.org.

Time to File is Limited, So Don’t Wait!

The Arizona Workers’ compensation system is exclusively for job-related injuries suffered by workers’ injured in or hired in Arizona. It has many deadlines that must be met, including promptly reporting of the injury and filing the claim within 1 year of when the injury and its relationship to the job is known. However, if the injury prevents the worker from working in what is considered substantial gainful activity for longer than 12 months, the injured employee may also qualify for social security disability insurance benefits. These are complicated matters and often require the expertise of lawyers knowledgeable about both types of matters, such as the attorneys at Schiffman Law Office, P.C.
